Product Description

Battery Temperature Sensor (25 ft)

Battery Temperature Sensor for Xantrex Charge Controllers

The Battery Temperature Sensor is designed for use with Xantrex C Series Charge Controllers. The sensor mounts on a terminal post of a battery in a bank or on the side of a battery and measures its temperature. It sends precise information to the charger or charge controller, which automatically adjusts voltage to ensure full battery charge depending on the ambient temperature of your battery installation.


Positioning Your Battery Bank

One of the first challenges many DIYers face when beginning the process of constructing a battery bank-coupled wind turbine is where precisely to locate the battery bank.

There are a variety of constraints and limitations that are important to note when choosing a location for the battery bank. Here we try to summarize some of these considerations and make a few suggestions that have been accumulated over the years from our community of DIYers.
