  • What's Included
  • The Sunforce Products 400 Watt Wind Turbine Power Generator will allow you to harness the power of the wind by using a wind turbine to generate electricity to power your home. The wind generator turbine is small yet versatile and can produce up to 400 Watts (or 27 amps) of output for charging multiple types of 12 volt battery banks (sold separately). It is compatible with multiple battery options, including flooded lead acid, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM), gel cell and NiCad; for 12-volt systems it is recommended to use batteries with 400 amp-hours. It also features a special coating that protects the generator in marine or coastal environments. The wind turbine is completely weatherproof and designed to operate in most climatic conditions with winds up to 150 MPH. The turbine begins to supply power in wind speeds as low as 8 MPH and includes over-speed protection. The 400 Watt Wind Turbine will have an average monthly output of 38 KWh with an average wind speed of 12 MPH and as wind speed increases, so will the energy output.

    Included Accessories
    • Stop Switch: 50 amp DC stop switch is used to safely apply a brake to the turbine either during periods of intense wind or general maintenance. Note - wiring diagram located on page 6 of owner's manual.

    • Plastic Disks: Anti-static components that will prolong the life span of the turbine protecting it from weather corrosion and static build up.

    • Over-Speed Protection: This turbine has built-in protection that prevents possible damage in periods of extreme high winds. A brake is applied when the turbine senses 20 M/S or 45 MPH. At this point the turbine will stop spinning, the internal charging system will cycle adn wait for a drop in wind speed before starting again.

    WARNING: This Unit has serious Design Problems Review by Chuck
    WARNING: This Unit has serious Design Problems

    This unit is difficult to use even for Electronic engineers! My Sunforce 44444 generator cuts out imediately when charging my 12 volt battery bank. The batteries are normally at about 13.3V (provided by my solar panels) and the internal regulator of the wind generator should not cutout until 14.1V. I am using #8 wire for connections. Also...during storms, the internal regulator DOES NOT cutout...driving battery voltage up past 15 volts! There is also a servo problem where once the regulator cuts in the mechanical brake the unit will NOT charge unless disconnected. This is a new unused product so I assume that the design is flawed. Also...the turbine often puts out 3 to 12 volts with no charge during 10-15 knott winds (because this voltage is below the 13.3V battery threshold) 99% of the time there is NO OUTPUT. I will need to disable the internal regulator and design and build a low voltage (3-12V) to 13.8V converter for this unit to be of any use. I tried calling customer service but no one was available to answer technical questions.

    don't get this turbine

    I have had 2 of these turbines and both locked up in less than a month.
