The BreezePro® Wind Turbines from Tycon Solar® are lightweight at less than 10.5kg and are designed for ease of installation and long service life. The generator is a very low cogging force design for better performance in light winds and is packaged in a fully sealed die cast aluminum enclosure. There are no brushes to wear out or cause electrical noise and the bearings are sealed so the system is maintenance free.
The blades are glass reinforced nylon for high strength, UV resistance and fatigue resistance. The turbines are 12V/24V auto voltage select. The unit includes an embedded smart battery charge controller and dump load resistor. The dump load helps prevent premature braking and increases the total power delivered to the batteries. It also helps protect the turbine in high winds. The entire blade assembly can be removed easily as 1 piece for hurricane protection. This also makes it easier and safer to install.
The permanent magnets used are Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) for higher power output. The mounting is to the inside of the top of a 41mm ID standard pole (1.5” Sched 40). The hardware used is stainless steel for corrosion protection. The units can be used in arrays of multiple turbines to increase available power.
