The Leading Edge LE-600 wind turbine is our 1.54m Dia wind turbine that produces 160W at wind speeds of 8m/s (18mph). The LE-600 has an innovative ‘downwind’ arrangement so the rotor is at the back of the turbine. This allows the turbine to work in harmony with the forces of nature resulting in a stable and capable wind turbine.

The LE-600 wind turbine is often used to compliment Solar PV in an off grid power system in order to provide more power in the winter months and cut down on

diesel usage. Applications include remote industrial systems, water pumping systems and powering data communications equipment – any application with a moderate power requirement. The turbine is available in a kit including charge controller, dump load and run/stop switch. 

Choose between 12V, 24V or 48V for battery charging application. Please note the LE-600 is not suitable for locations where the winds regularly gust to over 22m/s (50mph).

Efficient design from years of experience in the field

The LE-600 wind turbine is designed around a unique low inertia axial flux generator which utilises Neodymium rare earth magnetic materials. This alternator has zero ‘cogging’, which, together with its highly efficient and low ‘TSR’ WhispowerTM blades, allow the turbine to spin at low wind speeds and to react quickly to gusts.

Furthermore, the LE-600 wind turbine has a wild 3-phase output which is then converted to DC by an external regulator (supplied) which can be located near to the battery bank. This results in the most efficient way of transmitting power for long-distances between the wind turbine and the battery bank. Not only does this mean that you can save money by purchasing smaller less expensive transmission cables, but it means that you can put the turbine further away from the battery bank, in a position where it can be exposed to optimum wind conditions!
