Whisper 500 Wind Turbine
Product DescriptionThe Whisper 500 delivers serious energy for your remote power needs and can produce enough energy to power an entire home. Its two-bladed fiberglass-reinforced design performs well in harsh, high wind environments. The Whisper's side-furling angle-governor protects the turbine in high winds by turning the alternator and blades out of the wind, reducing turbine exposure and optimizing output at any wind speed. The Whisper 500's smooth, controlled current production makes it ideal for use with any solar photovoltaic system. The turbine can be equipped with a brake switch which gradually stops the blades from turning. A high voltage model is available for transmission over long distances.
The Whisper 500 includes the Whisper charge controller with diversion load to ensure safe, steady current output. The charge controller's optional LCD display instantly gives you real time performance data. The charge controller can be connected to an anemometer to compare performance to wind speed data.
