GreenergyStar Apollo 550W DC 12V Wind Turbine for Land or Marine Use. Over the last few decades renewable energy has started to gain its ground. Of all the different kinds of alternative energy sources available, the use of wind power has been growing steadily.
However, wind turbines that are available for homeowners in the market today are mostly designed (or copied) a decade ago and although they work, most have mechanical flaws that were neglected since their debut and there is a lot of room for improvements. With that in mind, we have redesigned a new wind turbine - the Apollo. Built-in with a stronger alternator for higher power output, Anti-vibration system to increase power efficiency, and the ability to be customized and upgraded for the future. Exploded View (No inverter, batteries, turbines and solar panels included in this listing). What is the difference in an Apollo Wind Turbine?GreenergyStar's Apollo Wind Turbine is the most mechanically advanced generator in the market today. It features many upgrades that solves performance issues that our competitors struggle with. It is designed to work with other. Products such as the SolarWind Hybrid RX charge controller and grid tie inverters to better utilize the renewable energy generated.
The following list will summarize its major features. The above battery charging power curve is obtained from charging a 12V 100Ah battery bank with our SolarWind Hybrid Charge Controller. (not included in this listing). Color: White - With 49" swept area when mounted on a 5" Hub - Incorporates highly efficient, true airfoil - Quiet performance with minimal vibration - Can generate 800 watts or more depending on PMA efficiency - Manufactured using a precision injection molding process that produces blades of exceptional consistency - Made with new thermoplastic to increase durability - Smoother and more durable than any blades you can find in the market - Adjustable blade degree with included degree adjusters / shims (see picture below) - High resistance to bending (over 150 degrees).
What is Nylon 6.6? Nylon is a man made product.
On the man made side, you will see primarily three types of thermoplastic. These are polyester, polypropylene, and nylon. Of the three types, nylon is by far the better choice.Nylon is extremely versatile in its applications. It is highly resistant to abrasion and has excellent resilience. Within nylon, there are two groups: nylon 6 and nylon 6.6. Nylon 6.6 is the. It is the thermoplastic that is most often specified by professional architects and designers because it provides the flexural strength, low-temperature toughness, UV Resistance and is the most resilient. Nylon 6.6 performs well in many applications such as wind turbine blades, automotive parts, and other fields that get a lot of wear and tear. Nylon 6.6 has additional molecules that give extra strength and the resilience compared to nylon 6. If you still have no idea what Nylon 6.6 is, do a search on google. Adjustable blade degree with included degree adjusters (Shims) Increase/decrease blade angle by installing degree adjuster under the blades "+" on the right side = Increase angle = More Torque, Less Speed "-" on the right side = Decrease angle = Less Torque, More Speed.
Nylon 6.6 + Carbon Fiber. For those who are serious about wind power generation, this is a must have item.Never again will the cable get twisted up. Never again will you have to climb up the ladder and fix the tangles. Get a slip ring today and you can put all of that behind you. 40'C to 100'C.
M22x1.5 22mm diameter 1.5mm Thread Pitch. High voltage / current carrying capacity - Copper-graphite brushes ensure long life even under extreme load conditions - Quick connector for fast connection to the AC / DC wind turbine see reference picture below - Insulated with fiberglass sleeves to protect wires to the wind turbine and make the installation professional and tidy - Easily taken apart for quick maintenance - 2x High Quality Metal Sealed Ball bearing to stabilize axle. As we can see from the exploded view, the top circuit is color coded Red , the middle circuit is Black and the bottom circuit is Blue. Pros - 20mm rotor thickness, 66% more compare to competitor's - Stronger Magnetic flux due to thicker rotor, and thus, more Power - Evenly spread magnets decrease magnetic drag - 6 balanced hole to reduce weight - Reduce forces required to start rotor due to less reciprocation mass - Brushless Permanent Magnet Alternator.
Cons - only 12mm in rotor thickness and thus weaker magnetic flux - Magnets are not evenly spread out (ie: screw at top) - No weight reduction = harder start up. Please refer to listing details on the actual model you are getting. Bigger body allow fitting of a more powerful alternator than competitor's - Longer body and tail (62cm) allow the Apollo to face wind even if more blades are added while our competitor just spins round and round - High surface area tail, 33cm in height, 30% more surface area will let the turbine stay focus to incoming wind - Installation of 29 blades and capture 50% more wind is now possible.
Pros - 140mm diameter, 10% larger than competitor's - High blade capacity, allow up to 6 to be installed - Covers the entire face plate to eliminate vortex. Cons - 125mm in diameter - Only allows 3 blades to be installed - Does not cover face plate completely. Pros - Dual Metal ball bearing located at front and rear of rotor - 5.5cm of stabilizing distance to prevent rotor and blades from vibrating - No vibration = Increase in efficiency - Reduction in noise output.Cons - 2 bearings placed side by side together - Stabilizing distance effectively shorten to 2cm (63% reduction) - Vibration = Energy wasted - Wasted energy gets converted to Noise and Heat. Pros - Dual Metal ball bearing to prevent vertical vibration - Yaw shaft diameter: 40mm - 3cm of stabilizing distance with 2 bearings - No vibration = Increase in efficiency - Reduction in noise output - One piece design Yaw body provides more stability. Cons - Single bearings will not eliminate vertical vibration - Yaw shaft diameter: 35mm - Stabilizing distance effectively shorten to 1.4cm with one bearing (53% reduction) - Vibration will cause bearing to grind on yaw shaft and create a bigger play, which in turn will cause more vibration in a never ending cycle - 2 pieces design Yaw body is less stable. Pros - Unlike rubber, PVC Rings are much more durable will not harden and crack and cause leaks - Bearing are covered and will not rust / leak. Cons - Rubber ring will harden after approximately 1 year of use and will start cracking and leaking - Bearing are exposed and will rust / leak. 7.88kg (17.39 lb).
Yaw Body / Tower Mount Inner Diameter. 53.3mm, 2.1 inch. 1.5 inch schedule 40 pipe Actual Pipe diameter: 48mm (1.9 inch) Recommend adding 2.5mm padding. 1 Apollo Wind Turbine - 3x Blades - Hub with 6 lots - Nose Cone - Screws and Nuts - Degree Adjuster - Allen Key - Instruction Manual.Rotating blades present the most serious mechanical hazard. The blades may be moving at velocities over 275 miles per hour (440 km/hr). At this speed, the tip of a blade is nearly invisible and can cause serious injury.
