diversion load controller

I am looking for diversion load controller,  the 60A XANTREX or TRISTAR are the largest for sale .
 where I can find a 120A  model (minimun).
With my 12Vt batteries system with PV + Wind gen I carry (pick) 40A+60A= 100A load .

Re: diversion load controller

I don't understand why you are considering your PV amperage for the diversion controller.
The PV should be connected through a solar charge controller. The wind through a diversion controller. The two systems should either meet at the batteries, or in a DC source center.

Re: diversion load controller

Thanks Ken for your answer,
When I bought this house 6 years ago ( St Eustatius, Netherland Antilles)  it was equipped with PV panels and wing generator.
the former owner was very ingenious but installation was made with not too much logic.... it's was my first experience with  Re energy. 
Fortunately, I am an aircraft mechanic and the electricity rules are not too strange for me, so i learned by myself.
 now  back to my question , the old 120A diversion controller (dead)  was connected to the Batteries side with diversion to a ramp of lamps, that look like a Christmas's tree !!
The 4 ea PV panels are connected with their own (2ea ) Morning star (Prostar 30M ) controller .
if i well  understood ,I must consider only  the overload coming from the wind gene.  ( WISPER 1000  240 Vts ) 
I have ordered a new set of 3 X 4vts (1350 Ah) Surettes Batteries, and i  want to use them as long as possible !!
 the  mixed bench of batteries that it will replace is 18 years old now .... they still work, but if no sun, no wind  no storage!!..
Thanks again  Ken,   Regards, michel
