Primus AIR X Wind Turbine
AIR X Wind Turbine by Primus Windpower
Be under no illusion, the American made AIR X wind turbine from Primus Windpower is the most ubiquitous wind turbine in the world with over 160,000 units operating today. The simplicity of installation, combined with its light weight, high quality, reliability, survivability and impressive power output make it the most popular turbine in its class.
The AIR X MARINE wind turbine is a proven AIR X unit with a maritime anti-corrosion coating and is designed for high wind environments. The unit can be further tailored for a medium wind environment with the addition of the ‘Silent Carbon Blue Blade’ option.
The AIR X MARINE incorporates a three-phase brushless permanent magnet alternator and microprocessor to optimize its power production capability. The microprocessor continuously adjusts the loading of the alternator to keep the blades operating at their optimal angle of attack. The result is a higher power production, higher blade efficiency and reduced sound emissions. Like most wind turbines the AIR X Marine can also be easily used with solar PV systems and the user manual provides a helpful wiring diagram for this.
With a built-in circuit board and optimized software, the AIR X MARINE consistently delivers energy where it matters. The AIR X MARINE’s heavy-duty design can withstand most high wind environments and is built and backed by the worldwide leader in small wind power. All AIR X Marine units come with an impressive five year warranty.
With simple routine maintenance, high quality components and a global supply chain of available spare parts mean these units simply keep on going.
As the Australian partner for AIR wind turbines, we work very closely with Primus Windpower in the USA to support our customers worldwide. The AIR wind turbines require very little routine maintenance, however when problems occur and a spare part or advice is needed urgently we are there for you. With a large stock of AIR wind turbine parts and worldwide express shipping, we are on hand to keep your AIR turbine operational. That said, whatever turbine you have, if you are planning a long ocean voyage in remote places it is always a good idea to have some basic spare parts with you.
