Start-up speed  24-volt Break and roll @ 5 mph (<3 m/s) 1 full amp at 10.5 mph on a 24 volt systems. "real world"
Safety Shunt Brake capable in winds up to 50 mph.
Class 1 electrical safety rated for prevention of electrical shocks.
Features Low start up speed due to low cogging and resistive torque design.
Gearless direct drive low rpm generator
High standard, quality components for use in harsh and extreme environment for wind turbines.
High efficiency
Excellent heat dissipation due to the winding running on the outside edge of the Aluminium alloy outer frame
Low mechanical resistance energy loss
Generator is designed using specially selected material and treated to resist corrosion and oxidation.
Designed for reliable long operational lifetime under long-term full output.
Designed with 15 to 20 years of operation in mind.
Brush-less Design (no more changing brushes every couple of years)
Quiet operation even in high winds.
AC output from the unit then rectified at the battery bank to reduce energy loss in wiring.
Self Furling Design for high wind over-speed protection.
