Leading Edge LE-600 Wind Turbine

Rating: 160 watts @ 8m/s (17.8mph) wind
Peak output: 750 watts @ 18m/s (40mph)
Voltage: 12, 24 or 48 volts DC.
Rotor Diameter: 1.54m
Cut In Windspeed: 3m/s (6.7mph)

Downwind wind turbine capable of producing output of up to 750W.

The LE-600 wind turbine is often used as a wind power addition to an existing off grid power system to compliment Solar PV in order to provide more power in the winter months and cut down on diesel usage. Other applications include remote industrial systems, water pumping systems and lighting and power in remote farm buildings – any application with a moderate power requirement.

Designed for industrial applications in harsh environments. Unique low inertia axial flux generator which utilises Neodymium rare earth magnetic materials to allow the turbine to spin in the lightest of breezes and to react quickly to gusts.

Manufactured from hard anodized and powder coated high quality aluminium alloys and stainless steel with sealed for life bearings, so no greasing or maintenance is required.

Leading Edge Flight Control Computer for LE-3000

The Leading Edge Flight Control Computer (FCC) is used to maximise function and protection of the LE-3000 wind turbine.

Includes:

  • Central logic controller
  • Turbine sensors
  • Braking resistors
  • Auxiliary inputs and outputs to enable the unit to operate the wind turbine at its optimum no matter the conditions

The FCC can also be used for secondary functions such as charge control in off-grid applications.

The FCC may be placed near the battery bank meaning the longer section of cabling will be higher voltage 3-phase AC reducing cost by utilising smaller lower cost cables.
