The construction of the dynohub turbine is going well at the moment and I hope to have it mounted and running by the weekend, so I need to turn my attention to the electronics side if Im going to use some of the free juice Im generating!
In my eternal quest not to spend any money I started looking at the insides of some dead electrical equipment I have lying around in search of a bridge rectifier and came across what I think is a rectifier in and old dusk/dawn sensor.
It has the code "W06" marked on it and I was wondering if it would be suitable to use on my dynohub turbine? A quick Google reveals that it’s for 240v operations but will it still work in 6/12v use? Or will the fact that its for 240v use render it useless at low voltages?
Ill be honest... Im a bit out of my depth with regard to the electronics side of things but Im trying to get myself up to speed as fast on possible.
Thanks in advance
