Renewable Energy: Marine wind turbines

In just a few years, the AIR X marine has become the standard wind turbine among blue water cruisers selling over 70,000 turbines worldwide.

In just a few years, the AIR X marine has become the standard wind turbine among blue water cruisers selling over 70,000 turbines worldwide.


Patented

AIR X marine is a new generation of small wind turbines. The onboard microprocessor monitors wind speed and optimises output using a peak power tracking feature.

Stall regulation

Another patented feature allows the AIR X marine to quietly produce maximum output and then slow the blades to eliminate flutter noise.

Features of the AIR X marine:

* Internal charge controller that is externally adjustable for any type of battery
* Patented peak power tracking for maximum power at all wind speeds
* Exclusive autobrake slows the blades to a silent spin when the batteries are charged
* Marine quality powder coated aluminium body, all stainless steel hardware, marine grade wire, water tight housing
* Variable pitch aerolastic all carbon fibre blades
* Brushless permanent magnet alternator
* Maintenance free with only two moving parts

Specifications of the AIR X marine:

* Rotor diameter: 46" (1.15 meters)
* Weight: 13 lbs. (5.85 kg)
* Mount: 1.5" (1.9" OD, 48 mm)
* SCHED 40 pipe
* Start up wind speed: 6 Knots (7 mph, 2.7 m/s)
* Voltage: 12, 24 and 48 VDC
* Rated Output: 400 watts at 24 Knots (28 mph, 12.5 m/s)

Reliability

The design of the body efficiently flows excess heat into the wind reducing operating temperature, which improves performance.

Applications

The AIR X marine is capable of supplying power for:

* Refrigeration
* Auto-pilot
* Water maker
* Lights
* Navigational equipment
* Communication equipment
