1. Introduction

The 913 Connector Kit has been kitted together to provide all the necessary components in order to complete the installation of your wind turbine kit.

This Connector Kit works in conjunction with the Home Wind Turbine Instruction Manual (you should already have read this) and provides step by step picture instructions to help walk you through the installation of your wind turbine kit.

2. Safety Information

Read all instruction leaflets carefully before installation.

Please ensure you do not allow the battery terminal wires to connect together as this can cause an electrical short and heat damage from arcing which can melt steel! Ensure wind turbine is not spinning until all connections are in place and the turbine firmly mounted. Wear hand and eye protection while using the soldering iron which will reach very high temperatures.

3. Component Checklist

         

The 913 Connector Kit should include the following items:

• 10 x Bag Ties – to relieve pressure on connectors in tower

• 1 x 10’’ strip self-amalg tape – to seal in the turbine connectors

• 1 x Pair of battery connectors (snap-on battery terminal connectors)

• Please note – before connecting any kit

components together please cut approximately 1m off the 16m cable provided. This will be used to make ‘battery tails’ as shown in section 6.

4. Turbine to Cable Connection

The wind turbine should arrive with a cable dangling out from the bottom of it. This cable is made up of a red and black wire which is already attached to a cable connector. The turbine cable needs to be connected to the 16m length of cable supplied.

Please see below for step by step guidance:

• Using a pair of wire strippers, strip the end of the 16m of cable provided to expose both the red and black wire.

                      

  • You will then need to strip both of these wires to expose the copper wire underneath. Before connecting these ends place a single twist in them so that loose threads do not protrude. Alternatively dip them in molten solder.

          

  • Next connect the red wire from the turbine to the red wire of the cable and the black wire from the turbine to the black wire of the cable. Attach these by placing the wires in the cable connector, provided with the turbine, and tighten using a small screwdriver.

  • Secure the above turbine to cable connection using the self-amalg tape provided. This will seal in the turbine connector.

  • The turbine will now be connected to the cable, ready to thread down through the mounting poles.

  • Please note that the shorter the cable distance, the more efficient your whole turbine system will be. We recommend a distance of approximately 10m from the turbine to the regulator/battery/inverter. Note - It is possible to increase this distance if heavier gauge wire is used.

 

 

                                     

5. Cable to Regulator Connection

Next thread the cable through the tower sections and out of the base. Secure the cable in place using the cable ties provided. The loose end of the 16m of cable is now ready to be connected to the regulator. It is important that the wind turbine is not rotating until ALL the electrical connections are complete.

• Using a pair of wire strippers, strip the loose end of the 16m cable to expose the red and black wire. The red and black wire also needs to be stripped to expose the copper wire underneath. (Repeat step 4).

• Attach the red cable wire to the +ve W.G using a screwdriver.

• Attach the black cable wire to the –ve W.G using a screwdriver.

                 

 

6. Regulator to Battery Connection

The regulator is, as the name suggests, the device that prevents the battery from becoming overcharged. This is therefore an important part of the system as without it the battery can become permanently damaged from overcharging. To make this connection you will require the 1m length of cable previously cut from the 16m cable provided. Trim the 1m of cable back to produce both a red and a black battery tail’. You will then need to trim both ends of both wires to expose the copper wire underneath. It is important to not have loose threads sticking out. These could cause short circuits.

• Attach black battery tail to the –ve BATT port on the regulator.

• Attach red battery tail to the +ve BATT port on the regulator.

• Connect battery tails onto the battery snap-on terminals. Red tail to red terminal and black tail to blue terminal as shown below.

                  

• Connect the battery snap-on terminals onto the battery. Red to red positive terminal and blue to black negative terminal.

 

                                         

7. Battery to Inverter Connection

• Connect the red inverter wire onto the red DC output and the black inverter wire onto the black DC output points on the inverter.

                               

• Then connect the red inverter wire around the base of the red positive battery terminal and the black inverter wire around the base of the black negative battery terminal.

                  

• Once all components of the kit have been connected together you are then able to either link your system up to a lighting ring (please consult a qualified electrician) or you can plug 12V appliances directly into the socket on the inverter.

8. 913 Kit Connection Summary
