The Leading Edge LE-v150 is a rugged, silent and highly reliable vertical axis wind turbine designed to provide power outputs of up to 200 watts for a host of different battery charging applications. The LE-v150 Standard Kit includes the DL-300 diversion charge controller to protect the batteries from over-charging.
The wind turbine is connected directly to the batteries and the DL-300 charge controller is also connected to the batteries. When the batteries are fully charged, the controller diverts excess power generated by the wind turbine into the DL-300's resistor, dissipating the power as heat.
Side-mount the turbine on a standard scaffold pole (48-50mm outer diameter) using 70mm U-bolts.
