Rutland Windchargers simply convert the free and abundant power in the wind to power stored in your batteries. The 12V power is ready to use for engine starting, lights, coolers, essential navigation equipment and other low energy appliances. With a Rutland 504 installed on board weekend sailors will experience the convenience of fully charged batteries for engine starting.
Rutland Windchargers are a popular sight in marinas, thousands are in use worldwide and boat owners like their particularly quiet operation coupled with clean, aerodynamic lines. Without doubt the unique Rutland alternator design accumulates more energy than any other comparable wind generators available and you'll always see a Rutland spinning in the lightest of breezes!
The Rutland 504 model continues to incorporate the “safety turbine” found on its highly successful predecessor the Rutland 503. The blade tips are protected by the outer ring making this windcharger ideal for trickle charging on board where space is at a premium. Weekend yachts and sailboats up to 10m benefit from its compact size and charging capacity and in particular where batteries up to 100Ah are in regular use. Motor home and touring caravan owners will find the Rutland 504 conveniently portable and ideal for topping up the battery when parked.
When you fit a Rutland wind generator on board you will experience:
- Direct savings on fuel costs and engine maintenance owing to reduced engine running time
- Security of power for essential appliances on-board, eg. navigation equipment
- Fully charged batteries for engine starting on returning to your boat.
……and don’t forget that by keeping your battery trickle charged its life will be extended too!
