Description

Soma 1000BC - 110 Volt Off-Grid Wind Turbine

Includes 110V to 12/24/48V step down transformer to minimise cable cost - ideal for applications where the wind generator is a long distance from the batteries.

This wind turbine is a battery charging wind generator to supply power for light duty electrical requirements in remote areas. It is designed to be the main source of power to the energy efficient home covering such loads as lighting, radio, television, water pump, washing machine, kitchen blenders, power tools and refrigeration. The maintenance free features of the Soma 1000 also make it an ideal source of power to telecommunications and scientific equipment located in inaccessible areas.

The Soma 1000BC comes with: blade, tail pipe, tail fin, power head, nose cone, propeller bolts, controller and step down transformer.

Both controller and transformer are located near the battery and turns the tubine's 110V into 12, 24 or 48V DC - thus reducting cable cost significantly.
Remember to select correct voltage when ordering!

Soma wind generators have been designed to be used either as a complementary power supply in conjunction with one or more solar panels; or in particularly windy areas, as a stand-alone power supply system.

All turbine components are made from the highest quality materials to withstand long term wear and fatigue. Corrosion protection is a high priority. The blades are constructed using a hollow moulded fibreglass technique that is unique to SOMA. The tilt back action relieves pressure on the wind turbine and the tower in strong winds (over 15m/s). This is a fail safe design with mechanical simplicity. A hydraulic dampener limits the feathering action in gusty winds.

Large rotor diameters ensure high efficiency in light to moderate wind speeds. The brushless, permanent magnet alternators used on all Soma machines are designed to produce a power curve that matches the output of the 2 bladed rotor while operating at optimal tip speed ratios.
