These low-voltage water-heating elements are for use as
diversion loads for wind or hydroelectric systems. Use one or
more of these heating elements with a charge control designed
for load diversion, such as the Xantrex C40 or C60, to turn
your excess power into hot water. They fit most standard electric
water heaters with screw-in elements. We have one model
for 12- and 24 volt systems and another for higher power 24-
volt systems and 48 volt systems. The 12/24-volt element can
be wired to consume 25 or 50 amps at 14.5 volts or 25 amps at
29 volts. The 24/48 volt element can be wired to consume 30
or 60 amps at 29 volts or 30 amps at 58 volts. Order one or
more elements with a total current draw greater than your
charging system's maximum output, but no more than the maximum
power rating of the charge control in the diversion mode.
If your water heater tank is designed for square flange elements,
use one square flange adapter for each element.
