Whisper 500 Wind Generator & EZ Wire I. Specify Voltage 24 or 48VDC
SouthWest Windpower Whisper 500 Wind Turbine
Whisper, a name with more than 10 years of experience in the field, has been re-engineered and launched under the Southwest Windpower family of wind turbines.
The Whisper has an all-new look featuring a cast aluminum frame and smooth, quiet operation of the patented "angle-governor" furling design.
Whisper 500 - Serious power production for an entire home.
The 3000-watt rated turbine will deliver in excess of 500 KWH per month in a 12 mph (5.2 m/s) wind. This machine has a 14-foot (4.26m) rotor diameter providing 175 sq. ft. of swept area. The Whisper 500 has been redesigned, incorporating a stronger, larger yaw shaft, new blade stabilizer straps and a third spindle bearing for increased reliability.
The Whisper 500 features a fiberglass and structural foam core blade for smooth, high efficiency operation and low wind start-up. It also incorporates the patented "angle governor" design for quiet operation in high winds. The Whisper 500 is an excellent machine for village power projects, farms, ranches, back-up power and remote homes with large energy demands
Patented Angle Governor: Exclusive to the Whisper, the side furling Angle Governor protects the turbine in high winds by turning the alternator and blades out of the wind, reducing its exposure. Unlike other wind turbines that lose as much as 80% of their output when furled, the Angle Governor allows the Whisper to achieve maximum output in any wind.
Whisper Controller and Digital Display
The Whisper 500 ships complete with a controller and diversion load, ensuring quiet, safe operation of your wind turbine when the batteries are charged. The controller installs in minutes and it protects both your wind turbine and battery and easily fits inside your battery room.
Add the optional LCD display to instantly monitor real-time data on the performance of your Whisper 500. The display can be mounted on the controller or up to 1000 feet (300 meters) away, so you can monitor performance in the comfort of your home. You can even add an anemometer feed to compare wind speed with turbine output to make sure you are getting the most from your Whisper 500.
