Rutland 504 - available in 12 volt
The Rutland 504 model’s safety turbine makes it ideal for trickle charging
on board where space is at a premium. Weekend yachts up to 10m and mobile users such as caravanners will appreciate its compact size and weight for ease of handling and portability. Typicallysuited for batteries up to 150Ah capacity.
Just a gentle breeze is all it takes to start the aerodynamically styled Rutland spinning and it’s soon delivering charge into your battery. The low inertia turbine spins and swivels to capture the free and abundant energy in the wind, often accumulating more ampere hours per day than larger turbines so you can take advantage of our compact designs.
Environmentally Friendly . . .
Wind & solar energy don’t just save money on charging costs but benefit the environment too. With a strong sense of nature around boating and camping you have the satisfaction of using a natural resource from a progressive technology, fulfilling your energy needs without harming the environment.
Quietly . . .
Rutlands have a deserved reputation for quiet operation so you can live aboard without disturbance from noisy running blades. We match the design our blades and generator to optimise efficiency so you can expect silent but powerful performance. Our charge regulators include a shut down switch so you can be in control.
Reliably . . .
Rutland design, develop and manufacture the windgenerators in their UK based factory where the systems and procedures are quality assured under ISO9002. Their testing parameters are rigorous and computer controlled and they record the performance of every turbine produced. The longevity of their products has been proven time and again since 1979 in applications on land and sea around the world.
Getting Your Rutland Up and Running
Choose the right Rutland Windcharger for you and then select:
A Rutland Marine Mounting Pole and separately supplied Stays Kit give a professional finish to your installation OR make your own to suit using the tube sizes specified:
Rutland 504 – 31.7mm internal diameter, maximum external 38mm
Charge Regulator –
Choose one of the latest technology PWM (pulse width modulation) regulators available for single or dual battery charging. Both types undertake multistage charging and include temperature compensation to maximise the battery capacity. As the batteries achieve full charge these regulators automatically and progressively brake the blades minimising unnecessary wear on the wind turbine. An input position for solar panels up to maximum capacity of 160W (@25°C) is included. Shutdown switch to isolate wind and solar charging from the battery is built in. The regulator should be located within a 1.5m cable run of the battery bank.
