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

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
