Renewable energy solutions for sustainable living.
And now, over 30,000 turbines later, the new 403 has once again rewritten the history books as it became the best selling wind turbine in the world. Still priced about the same as a photovoltaic module, an AIR is capable of producing more than seven times the energy!
The AIR's blades are made of a carbon fiber reinforced composite
that twists as the turbine reaches its rated output. This twisting effect
changes the shape of the blade, causing it to stall, limiting the RPM of the
alternator protecting the AIR from damage in high winds.
The AIR's brush-less alternator is optimized to match as close
as possible to the cubic energy in the wind. It is constructed with Neodymium
Iron Boron permanent magnets for superior performance and maintenance-free
REGULATION & CONTROL ELECTRONICS: The electronics perform several functions to assure maximum output and safety for the user. The control electronics maintain a load on the alternator at all times to insure the turbine never over speeds, regardless of the condition of the battery. As the battery is charged, the sophisticated regulator periodically checks the line, correcting for voltage loss and monitoring charge rate. Once the battery has reached its optimum charge level, the regulator shuts the current off, preventing the battery from being overcharged and slowing the blades to a silent spin.
