LE-V150 Wind Turbine - complete with  DL-300 charge controller
The Leading Edge LE-V150 wind turbine follows on from the amazingly successful LE-V50 Turbine. Like its smaller sibling, the LE-V150 is a compact, silent and lightweight vertical axis turbine designed to provide power outputs up to 175 watts for a host of different battery charging applications. The LE-V150 is suitable for use in applications where a traditional horizontal axis turbine may be inappropriate – such as powering road signage and lighting in sub-urban areas where the compact nature and silent operation of the LE-V150 make easy work of turbulent winds. The LE-V150 wind turbine draws on Leading Edge's heritage of designing rugged vertical axis wind chargers for powering industrial and research equipment in extreme environments. However, the LE-V150 also lends itself perfectly for leisure activities in the Marine and Caravanning sector. The LE-V150 wind turbine is perfect for providing charge into valuable batteries whilst the yacht and caravan owners are away. This saves owners money by not having to connect to ‘shore power’ or repair and replace expensive batteries that have been damaged by becoming discharged. In the yachting world, the LE-V150 also reduces the effects of mains induced electrolysis and corrosion on the boat as well as meaning that owners can go on extended cruises without need to run the engine. The LE-V 150 wind turbine can also be found all over the world powering small electronic systems in remote places where there is no other power source – Such as supplementing Solar PV panels in ‘off-grid’ renewable energy systems and powering LED street lights and other lighting systems. The LE-V150 wind turbine is available in 12V and 24V versions.

Key Product Features:
  • Silent Operation – absolutely no noise as the turbine operates
  • Small Compact size – easy to install in places where space is a premium
  • Lightweight – at only 13kg the LE-v150 can be installed with ease
  • Safe – the rotating blades cannot cause injury
  • Reliable – with only one moving set of parts and no brushes to wear out
  • Indestructable – Designed & proven to survive 120mph Antarctic winds
Indestructible build quality & durability

The LE-v150 is manufactured from high quality aluminium alloys and stainless steel which has been laser processed, CNC machined, hard anodized and powder coated to ensure that the turbine will withstand the harsh effects of the extreme environments that it was originally designed for. With only 1 moving part, there is little to go wrong and no brushes or slip-rings to wear out and need replacing. The bearings are sealed for life and fully lubricated, so no greasing or maintenance is required. All of the fixings are manufactured from A4 stainless steel which are able to withstand the most corrosive of environments. The LE-v150 has a design life of 20 years +, but due to its modular design and ease of maintenance, the turbine could easily run indefinitely!

Pure Performance

The LE-v150 uses a proven ‘Savonious’ rotor design which gives silent and effective performance. Using the latest solid modelling and Computational Fluid Dynamic simulations, we  have come up with an elegant ‘cross-ventilated’ rotor which provides extremely good power conversion for a vertical axis turbine of this size. The rotor is then coupled to our specially designed low inertia, zero ‘cogging’ axial flux permanent magnet alternator to ensure an excellent power curve whilst the turbine starts up in the lightest of winds. Using Neodymium rare earth magnets, this alternator design has become one of the most field proven and effective alternators that is deployed across the entire range of Leading Edge Turbines!

Absolute Safety

Unlike any other small wind turbine you will find, the LE-v150 can even be allowed to run ‘off-load’ with no connection to the batteries – The LE-v50′s rotor design will limit is RPM automatically. You can even try to put your hand into the spinning rotor, but it will be deflected away before any harm is done!These safety features make the turbine ideal for installation in places where space might be an issue, and where people are nearby – perfect for the deck of a sailing boat!
