1kW Wind Turbine PMG with 48V Battery Charger
Three phase PMG 1kw wind turbine with battery controller, remote monitoring software, cables, anemometer and direct connection to 24V or 48V batteries including lithium-ion and lead-acid.
1kW Permanent Magnet Wind Generator with Charger and Controller
The new AirForce 1 model incorporates the FuturEnergy in-house designed and manufactured permanent magnet generator for efficient and durable production. The wind turbines have a 3phase (AC) output for rectification to DC.
Weighing in at only 19 kilos our turbines are tower-top ready and will fit on to a standard 50mm steel tube pole. We do not recommend ‘building-mounted’ installations other than on steel-framed buildings.
Your turbine system will be supplied in 3 shipping cartons, weighing a total of 26kgs, and you will be required to attach the tailfin and blades to the main turbine housing.
All AirForce 1 Wind Turbines are now supplied with AirForce Control, a brand-new product designed and manufactured by FuturEnergy. AirForce Control provides unparalleled performance monitoring and automatic system protection for your 3-Phase AC 1kW turbine installation. Included with the AirForce Control is a Davis Anemometer, which provides the system with both wind speed and wind direction data.
The AirForce 1 Control unit is installed within a covered area close to and in series with the manual stop-switch and directly to the batteries or other loads. When charge parameters are met, or other controlled parameters exceeded, the turbine is automatically stopped and restarted when conditions return within operational limits or further battery charging is required.
AirForce1 Control offers access to a Web-based portal providing remote control & configuration, along with trending of historical performance data for your turbine.

Typical installation diagram of hybrid wind and solar system with energy storage
"A 1kW horizontal axis turbine might not sound like much, but if you consider that wind often blows at a constant speed for long periods of time, it becomes possible for the turbine to generate 8 to 10kWh per day. Pair this with a 2 or 3kW solar panel, and you've got enough energy to power the average home, with no reliance on the standard grid. You can even store excess energy with the 48V battery charger, adding to the efficiency."
