Yeah, wind turbine 3-phase wires are typically all the same color.

Doesn't matter as long as you know it's 3-phase

One question is, do you have any wind where the turbine is ?

What voltage is the turbine wound for ?  What kind of turbine is it ?

thanks,
only one device at a time, laptop just doesn't seem to get it.
but I'll try those ideas, thanks

Maybe try uninstalling the Local App and reinstall it again.

You can use a Raspberry Pi with Node Red to do all kinds of things -if you have the geek and programming smarts to grab the data from all your devices and then display them like Andreas Speiss shows in his video.

For remote monitoring the Classic you may be interested  in this recent project

>  the wind turbine cables are all green and it is labeled pos. ground or neut.

Your cable is non-standard/wrong for 3 phase wild AC, unless it's rectified up in the turdbine and if so, then it's no longer 3 phase AC

3 phase wire has at least 4 wires.
pA
pB  (phases are often Black, Red, Blue)
pC
 Neutral (often white)
optional:
  Ground (should only be green)

Odd.  I have my classic 200, set to a fixed IP, wired to a wifi router.  My win 8 Laptop is 300feet away, and I have the LA set to look at the fixed IP.  Been working fine since first set up.   Also can access it via LA on android phone in the power shed, via wifi, works fine there too.   

  LA will only work with 1 master device, so start with no computer connected to it, limited to 1 computer/android phone

I sure this toppic has come up but can't find a lot of information I assume I will have to use a combination of a few things to get Remote monitoring like Sunnybox or "Mate 3S/Optics" funtionality. my question is how do I configure this system.
Do I make a local netwrok and use a
-MIDNITE, MNSICOMM, CLASSIC MODBUS TO SUNNY ISLAND CANBUS COMMUNICATIONS ADAPTER?
-https://www.midnitesolar.com/pdfs/Local_App_manual.pdf
and/or
somthing with this raspberry PI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdV4x925au0&t=3s
Thank you

This may be a load diversion controller....

3-phase input to a rectifier.  I'm not sure if there is supposed to be an external load resistor or if this just clips the input or something like that.

How many input volts is it good for ?

Thanks guys,
i will try to find a forum that deals with wind power,
i also have a classic 150, i should be able to use the 3 phase turbine with the classic right, and a rectifer and a dump load.

To add to what ClassicCrazy Larry mentioned,

Many wind turbines need significant wind speeds to generate any significant power output.

Also,   if your batteries do not really need charging,  then  there can be little,  or no work for the turbine to do.

Know nothing of your turbine,  or controller.    FWIW,   good  luck,   Vic
