The Leading Edge LE-v50 and the LE-v50 Extreme vertical axis wind turbines are compact, silent and lightweight turbines designed to trickle charge your batteries or for low power electronic devices such as data-loggers, radio and telemetry equipment. The vertical axis design is able to work effectively in challenging conditions compared with a horizontal axis turbine.
The LE-v50 wind turbine was originally designed to provide power for industrial data monitoring equipment in the most extreme & remote places where there is no other power source. It can be found supplementing Solar PV panels in ‘off-grid’ renewable energy systems.
The LE-v50 wind turbine is also a regular sight at marinas providing a trickle charge to valuable batteries whilst the owners are away. This saves money by not having to connect to ‘shore power’ or repair and replace expensive batteries that have been damaged by becoming discharged. It reduces the effects of mains induced electrolysis and corrosion on the boat as well as meaning that owners can go on extended cruises without need to run the engine.
The LE-v50 is available as a 12V, 24V and 48V wind turbine.
