Flexchargeâ„¢ Divert Load Resistor Print this page

The Divert load resistors are used in conjunction with our NC25A and NCHC controllers.  A divert load is required on systems using any generator or alternator power source to provide a load path for the power when the battery can no longer take any more charge.  This load prevents the generator or alternator from overspeeding and also keeps the voltage within safe limits during the Divert stage of the charge process.  The ceramic wire wound resistors can be wired in different configurations for different amperage requirements and different voltages. 

These units do generate some heat and need to be mounted in an area where there is some air circulation.

Available models

RES/DVT12-30 is configured for a 12 volt system and will provide a 30 amp load.

RES/DVT12-15 is configured for a 12 volt system and will provide a 15 amp load using only one resistor.

RES/DVT24-15 is configured for a 24 volt system and will provide a 15 amp load using 2 resistors.

Also see our DVRTPAD30A type divert load for a water heating divert load

 Where to buy

 Flexchargeâ„¢ controllers are the controllers of choice for research projects around the world.

Sensitive data recording equipment is not affected by the Flexcharge Controllers because there is no RFI generated in the controller as is common on many others.

Extremely high efficiency was a design goal for all Flexcharge controls.  Little or no heat is dissipated from the controllers so all of the generated energy can be used.

No matter if your system is a simple battery maintenance system or a large main power source, you will benefit from the efficiency and dependability of our products.
