    I am getting ready to install my vintage Jacobs wind turbine to use in our off grid system. It is a 110 volt unit(140 volt max) rated at 20 amps.I would like to use it to charge our 48 volt battery bank. I'm currently looking at the charge controller in the link, is this the best way to go? Perhaps not the cheapest but I would like something simple. I realize these aren't built for wind turbines.
    About have way down the page gives the specs of the controller.
    Thanks for any advice or info.

    It looks like all bases are covered excopt cost- ouch. Maximum power point is about only feature not needed. Check with the Store, as they also handle wind turbines..
