D400 Wind Turbine - 12V


One of the best small turbines we have come across.

The D400 is a direct drive wind turbine which has been designed for both marine and land based applications. The D400 is extremely robust, quiet and vibration during operation. It is available with 12, 24, 48 and 72 volt outputs. The turbine has been designed for long, trouble free service and features a powerful 3 phase alternator and computer designed blades optimised for low speeds.

This innovative wind turbine is extremely efficient in low wind speeds and yet is still capable of producing sustained outputs of over 500 watts in higher wind speeds.

To put things in perspective, this is the only turbine that we recommend for extreme installation locations such as remote telecom sites and buoys in the Atlantic Ocean. Where other turbines fail, the D400 just keeps generating!
