The stop switch is used to shut down the wind generator if it is not to be operated or to prevent starting of the rotor when working on it. Wiring the stop switch is not obligatory if a charge regulator has been installed.

When using the Superwind on a boat or a sailing yacht, the stop switch is strongly recommended to shut the wind turbine down in heavy weather at sea. Spray and waves, parts detached from the rigg or from the sails etc. could touch the rotor. Furthermore in such situations the restricted mobility on board increases the risk of accidentially touching the running rotor.

If the system is operated without charge regulator, a stop switch is necessary. In this case charging must be continuously supervised by the operator and terminated when the battery is fully charged. The stop switch disconnects the Superwind from the battery and simultaneously shuts down the rotor. The stop switch must be installed in the line between the wind generator and the battery as close to the wind generator as possible. In this line between wind generator and stop switch fuses or circuit breakers must not be installed. The stop switch has two positions:

RUN:
The positive line from the generator is connected to the battery.
The negattive line from the generator is connected to the battery.

STOP:
The positive line and the negative line from the wind generator are short-circuited.
(generator short circuit brakes the rotor)
The positive and the negative lines from the battery are both open and disconnected from the wind generator.

The stop switch is designed for indoor panel mounting. For easy adaption to panels of up to 22 mm thickness, the shaft is adjustable.
