Air-X Marine Wind Turbine include
Quality: The AIR-X Marine has a powder coated aluminum body, all stainless
steel hardware, marine grade wiring and a water tight housing. The new body
also doubles tip to tower clearance for added reliability during storms.
As the fastest growing energy source
in the world, wind energy is now a popular choice for electricity. In areas
with sufficient wind, wind power provides the most economical source of green
energy. We sells turbines by Southwest Windpower, the world leader in
small wind turbine manufacturing, sales, and exports. With their advanced
and innovative design, they offer the highest power output,
the lowest amount of noise, and the most
affordable prices on the market. These systems create no waste
or pollution, and since the energy comes from the wind, there is never
a need to refuel. In addition, their new design also makes them very
quiet. Why use a noisy, polluting generator that constantly needs to
be refueled? As conventional energy costs continue to increase, so do your savings.
This is a long term investment that can increase the value of your property.

The next generation AIR-X!
Southwest Windpower is pleased to introduce the latest in small wind turbines,
the AIR-X. The AIR-X builds upon what has made
AIR the world's #1 selling small wind turbine with technology previously
found only in today's mega-watt class wind turbines.
Much Lower Noise: Previous
AIR wind generators relied on their aero-elastic blade design for protection
in high winds, causing loud flutter noise in winds above 35 mph (16 m/s). AIR-X
marines circuit monitors the wind speed and electronically slows the blades
as it reaches rated output, preventing it from going into flutter. This results
in a much quieter wind turbine. In high winds, the AIR-X will continue to produce
power at a reduced level until the wind decreases, then maximum output will
Improved battery charging:
Previous designs required 300-400 amp hour battery banks so the trickle charge
of the wind turbine could be adequately absorbed. The charge controller periodically
stops charging, reads the battery voltage, compares it to the voltage setting
and if the battery is charged, it completely shuts off all current going to
the battery. This function is performed within a few milliseconds. The closer
the battery is to its full state of charge, the more often the circuit repeats
this action. This means any size battery bank from 25 to 25,000 amp hours or
higher can be charged safely. When the battery has reached full charge, the
blades will slow to an almost complete stop. Only when the battery drops below
its voltage set point will it resume charging.
Lower stress design: Power
is limited on the input side of the electronics by controlling the torque from
the blades. The excess energy no longer has to be dissipated by the electronics
resulting in lower stress on the circuit, bearings and other materials. Stress
occurs primarily in high winds, but under these conditions, the electronic stall
design reduces the blade speed to 600 rpm, significantly reducing mechanical
loading while producing power.
