Air Silent X Marine Wind Turbine 12V
Air Silent X Marine Wind Turbine 12V 1-ARMS-15-12
Air Silent X Wind Turbine 12V offers an increase in power output and a significant noise reduction offering high tech-enhanced carbon fiber blades.
Sailboats have harnessed the power of the wind for thousands of years to propel their vessels on the high seas. Today, with the assistance of small wind turbines, wind power is being used not only for propulsion but also to charge the battery banks of sailboats and yachts without the use of an alternator or generator. This is more important than ever as onboard gadgets and appliances multiply. To supply renewable energy to these onboard devices, Primus Wind Power has introduced the AIR Silent X wind turbine 12V.
Utilizing the proven, robust platform of the AIR Silent X wind turbine and the quiet carbon fiber “blue blade” set, Primus has designed a turbine that is quiet, lightweight yet providing an impressive energy output from a 1.2-meter rotor diameter turbine. A best in class 5 year warranty, the AIR Silent X provides you that reliability and performance that every sailor looks for. Up Tower controls inside the turbine allow for ease of installation with no additional space needed for a down tower controller. The AIR Silent X Wind Turbine is a great combination of very quiet operation, reliability, affordability, and energy output.
Wind turbines operate by capturing the kinetic energy of moving air: the wind. They convert it to rotational motion to turn an alternator that produces electrical power. The electrical power must be regulated to a voltage to charge the system batteries, and there must be a system to prevent overcharging the batteries and resume charging as the battery voltage drops. A means to protect the wind turbine from extreme wind damage must also be provided.
The Air Silent X Wind Turbine accomplishes all these goals by incorporating a three-phase brushless permanent magnet alternator and microprocessor controlled electronics to optimize its power production capability. The microprocessor continuously adjusts the loading of the alternator to keep the blades operating at their optimal angle of attack. The result:
- higher power production
- higher blade efficiency
- reduced sound emissions
- Quiet operation with the new Silent X carbon fiber "Blue" blades
- Up Tower controls for ease of installation
- Built-in regulator and marine grade paint
- Integrates easily with PV
