Rutland 914i Windcharger

Rating: 140 W in a 11 m/s (24.6 mph) wind.
Voltage: 12 or 24 volts DC.
Rotor Diameter: 0.91m
Cut In Windspeed: 3.1 m/s (6.9 mph)

The Rutland 914i builds on the success of the Rutland 913, utilizing Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology to perfectly match the generator performance to the turbine speed achieving a higher efficiency and thus more power generation. This innovation has enabled the Rutland 914i to retain the compact diameter of the 913 whilst being capable of capturing up to 30% more energy.

Furlmatic FM910-4

Rating: 72 W in a 11 m/s (24.6 mph) wind.
Voltage: 12 or 24 volts DC.
Rotor Diameter: 0.91m
Cut In Windspeed: 2.5 m/s (5.6 mph)

The FM910-4 Furlmatic is a high wind site version designed for professional and industrial users. A furling tail turns the turbine out of winds above 16 m/s (35 mph) to protect the system in gales. Robust mechanical design combined with latest 3 phase generator makes it the ideal battery charger for low energy applications. Recommended for exposed or unattended sites.
Epoxy coated galvanised steel case & tail. Stainless steel fasteners throughout.
Mounts onto 41mm inside diameter tubing or 40mm medium gauge galvanised pipe.

Furlmatic FM-1803

Rating: 276 W in a 11 m/s (24.6 mph) wind.
Voltage: 12,24 or 48 volts DC.
Rotor Diameter: 1.8m
Cut In Windspeed: 3 m/s (6.7 mph)

This powerful battery charger can provide a steady power supply for remote dwellings, buildings & telecommunication sites. It starts to generate power in the lightest breezes yet is protected in high winds for reliable, efficient performance.

  • Robust three bladed turbine commences charging at 3.0 m/s (6 mph) windspeed.
  • Charges up to 700 watts at windspeeds of up to 15 m/s (33 mph). As windspeed increases above this, furling tail progressively turns the turbine out of the wind, thus reducing stresses in blades, generator, and supporting structure to ensure long-term reliability.
  • Aerofoil blades combine an efficient profile with a durable composite glass fibre construction. These are coupled to a unique disc type brushless generator with a high degree of inertia that keeps the turbine spinning between gusts of wind to maintain a steady charge into the batteries.
  • Available in 12, 24 or 48V versions and comes complete with a sophisticated controller.


MPC1 Controller

This automatic controller is positioned near to the battery store and uses micro-processors to improve stability and power output:

  • Overcharge protection by stalling the turbine as batteries become fully charged.
  • Power matching under varying wind conditions. This minimises transmission losses and volt drop enabling turbine and battery store to be sited further apart if need be. Includes high & low windspeed modes.
  • Manual stall (brake) switch.
  • LCD digital display to show: battery voltage; charge in amps or watts; low or full battery indication; low wind mode; high wind mode or stall. LED indicators show operating mode & warnings.
  • Temperature compensation ensures battery voltage switching points are adjusted automatically according to ambient temperature to maintain optimum battery charging.

Towers

The FM 1803 mounts onto 81mm internal & 91mm external diameter tube.
Tilt-up guyed; lattice or freestanding towers are all suitable depending upon terrain, height and application.

Rutland 1200 Windcharger

Rating: 290 W in a 11 m/s (24.6 mph) wind.
Voltage: 12 or 24 volts DC.
Rotor Diameter: 1.2m
Cut In Windspeed: 2.5 m/s (5.6 mph)

For land based or marine applications the Rutland 1200 elegantly combines a number of high tech features focused on quiet operation, low windspeed performance and high power delivery up to 500W.

  • Unique Tri-namic Profile Blades brings together low wind speed start up with high wind speed power performance and almost silent running across all wind speeds.
  • 3 Phase AC power delivered from the turbine to the controller minimises voltage drop on long cable runs The low friction generator responds rapidly to windspeed changes and its inertia drives the turbine on between gusts to capture more energy
  • Power optimising Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) boosts the turbine’s output
  • Marine grade stainless steel and aluminium are combined with modern, durable but lightweight materials to give a high quality build and finish.

Rutland 1200 Controller included

  • Hybrid control to combine Rutland 1200 wind turbine with up to 20A of solar panels
  • Dual charging capability to 2 separate battery banks
  • MPPT on both wind turbine and solar panel inputs to maximise both energy sources. Enables connection of high voltage solar panels.
  • Pulse Width Modulation charge control for multi-stage charging ensures fully charged and maintained batteries.
  • Automatic turbine speed reduction as batteries reach capacity, resumes as batteries deplete.
  • Manual shutdown switches for wind and solar inputs
  • LED charge and battery condition indicators as standard.
  • Remote digital display optional. Connect with RJ232.
