Primus Windpower Silentwind 12v

  • Why Off Grid Systems Should Include Both Solar AND Wind

    • Wind speeds are highest during the winter months when solar resources are at their minimum
    • Air density is highest in winter maximizing wind power production
    • Wind provides power during inclement weather when sunshine is not present
    • Wind provides power at night

    If Wind, Why AIR?

    • Reliability: 5-year warranty with over 150,000 units installed globally since 1995
    • Up Tower Controller: Integrated controls inside the turbine regulate battery voltage
    • Ease of Installation: Air is wired directly to battery bank, independent of PV controller and wiring
    • Certifications: CSA approved to UL and CSA specifications*
    • Quiet Operation**

Description

Silentwind 12v

Silentwind turbines are ultralight, aerodynamic and durable wind generators ideal for any off-grid application. Their unique carbon fiber blades provide several advantages over traditional, injected-molded blades including reduced noise, increased strength during storms and improved blade longevity. Silentwind blades are handmade with high tensile carbon fiber mats, which is more labor-intensive but results in an optimized blade profile with minimal weight. Silentwind carbon fiber blades have been successfully tested in a wind tunnel at speeds up to 35m/s (63 knots.)

External wind/solar hybrid controller

Silentwind turbines include a hybrid wind/solar charge controller allowing for the connection of PV directly to the same controller, greatly simplifying installation for solar/wind hybrid systems. The Hybrid 1000 controller is compatible with lead acid, AGM and gel batteries. The Hybrid 1000 can handle up to 180 watts of solar at 12 volts with a maximum open circuit voltage of 50Vdc.
