Primus 1-ARBM-15, AIR Breeze wind turbine for marine environments, 250 Watt, internal regulator, marine grade
Primus AIR Breeze
The Primus AIR-series of small wind turbines has been around since 1995, with over 150,000 installed since! Theirs is a proven product, for a reasonable price.
The AIR Breeze produces best at low to moderate wind speeds and can work in a marine (salt spray) environment. For a high-wind environment the AIR X Marine or AIR Silent-X could be a better choice. Peak-power output is 250 Watt, and there are versions for 12/24/48 Volt battery-charging applications in coastal, desert or Arctic environments. A small wind turbine can also be a great addition to an off-grid system, to provide energy during those dark (but windy) winter days. It delivers the energy you need for communications, offshore structures, sailing or remote monitoring, to name a few. With a build-in charge controller, the AIR Breeze provides energy quietly and efficiently. The AIR Breeze is corrosion resistant, covered in aircraft quality paint with a marine grade O-ring seal and stainless steel fasteners, ensuring durability in challenging conditions. These are the official type codes:
Primus 1-ARBM-15-12: 12 Volt AIR Breeze
Primus 1-ARBM-15-24: 24 Volt AIR Breeze
Primus 1-ARBM-15-48: 48 Volt AIR Breeze
The AIR Breeze includes a stop-switch.
