Our New ‘rugged’ Upwind Turbine range is based on 2 years of real-life testing and development in Warwickshire and the Uplands of Scotland.

Using our unique Permanent Magnet Generators, combined with our Hi-Spec Wind Turbine Blade Sets, these furling turbines create very useful power in low wind conditions, and over 1000W in winds of 12.5m/s.
wind generator

Available in 12V, 24V, 36V & 48V DC versions, they are suitable for battery charging, water/air heating and Grid-Tie installations.

We don’t recommend, nor will we authorise the installation of any of our turbines in ‘building-mounted’ installations, other than for steel-framed and other industrial buildings. These turbines are tower-top ready, and will fit on to any of our Tower Kits listed here. These can be purchased separately, and can be made to your specific requirements where feasible. All FuturEnergy Wind Turbines must be installed using our approved towers.  Distributors and Re-Sellers based in the UK must also use only those towers approved for use with our turbines.  Please order your tower kit when ordering your turbine, since there is usually a 3-5 week lead time on all towers.  For a complete guide to towers, system designs and grid-tied inverters, see this Turbine Guide

Your turbine will be supplied in 2 shipping containers, weighing a total of 30Kg, and you will be required to attach the tailfin and blades to the main turbine housing. All instructions will be supplied to guide you through the simple assembly, and you should be ready to mount and use your turbine in only a few hours. For battery charging applications we suggest that you use a suitable charge controller to prevent your batteries from becoming overcharged.

Permanent Magnet Generators

At the heart of our 1KW Turbines is this Permanent Magnet Generator.  Using the very latest in rare earth magnets we are able to produce very high power outputs at low RPM levels, while achieving this from a PMG weighing only 7Kg.  With a wide variety of uses, from wind and water turbines, to fuel-powered generators, we are offering these PMG's to anyone who wishes to adapt them into their own products.

Supplied with 3-Phase power output cables (approx 15cm in length), 20mm axle with a "flat" and "recess" for securing, and 5 x 8mm nuts, washers and split rings on the faceplate mounting bolts. You will need to rectify the output of the 3-phases to produce DC for battery charging and other applications. Our PMG's are not guaranteed for use with your own rectifier solutions, and so we can supply a 3-Phase Bridge Rectifier Kit for this item for around £16.20 inc VAT, please ask when ordering.

Windmaster 500 Grid-Tie Inverter

The Windmaster 500 offers a simple solution when connecting an FE1048 turbine to your household mains supply. With it's light weigh and compact size, the Windmaster 500 can be installed inside existing meter cupboards, or in outbuildings, but is not suitable for use outdoors. Connection to the input of the inverter is provided by 2 dedicated DC power plugs, supplied. The output should be connected in accordance with the electrical requirements for the country of installation.

This inverter is supplied exclusively by FutureEnergy in the UK, and comes complete with DC input plugs, PC-Link connection and Monitoring/Logging software. In low wind sites it is advisable to use only one inverter with the FE1048, since over 90% of the power produced by the turbine will lie under the 500W export power limit of the inverter. For higher wind speed sites, we would suggest using 2 inverters, connected in parallel, to handle the full power of the FE1048 turbine. No charge controller is required when using these inverters, since they can handle a much higher input voltage than the turbine can produce, even in power-cut situations.

In "Hybrid" systems (those involving both wind turbines and solar PV), use the standard Soladin 600 inverter, keeping the installation simple and very neat.

Xantrex C40 & C60 Charge Controllers

For use in Battery-Based systems, these rugged charge controllers offer protection against overcharging when used with our wind turbines.  The Xantrex C60 is capable of handling charging currents of 60A, and is suitable for use with battery banks of 12V and 24V only.  The C40 can handle charging currents of up to 40A, and is suitable for use in 48V battery charging applications which use our turbines. 

In order to use either of these controllers with your FE Turbine and Battery Bank, you will require a suitable dump load for connection to the C40 or C60.  These dump loads are shown below, and can be bought separately if required.

The following number of dump loads are required with each of the following battery voltages.

  • For 12V systems use only the C60 and 2 Dump Loads (in parallel)

  • For 24V systems use only the C60 and 1 Dump Load

  • For 48V systems use only a C40 and 2 Dump Loads (in series)

dump load

Dump Loads

For use with either of the Xantrex charge controllers above, these dump loads are effectively very high power air heating elements.  The C40 and C60 charge controllers are used in 'Load Diversion' mode, and as such, they dissipate any unwanted power into these dump loads when your battery bank becomes fully charged.  It is vital to use a charge controller to prevent damage to your batteries, especially if you leave your system unattended for long periods of time, and without loading your batteries with an inverter, or other suitable device. 

These dump loads should be mounted as close as possible to your C40 or C60 charge controller.  They should be mounted in free circulating air, and not in an enclosed space.  The power connection blocks are made of solid brass, and all cabling used should be securely connected using the bolts provided.  Please ensure that you choose the correct number of dump loads for the battery bank voltage you are charging.  See above for details.

turbine blade


Wind Turbine Blade Sets

These wind turbine blade sets are constructed to the highest of standards, and are used at the heart of our 1KW downwind range.  They can easily be adapted to suit other turbines, and will produce up to 1.2kW of power in 12.5m/s winds.  The blade set comes in kit form, including 5 x high-spec blades, manufactured in black PAG material (virtually indestructible, and don't require painting), with 2 x 5-blade hubs (black anodised finish) and location pitch pins (25 degree root angle).  Once assembled, the complete rotor, measuring 1800mm in diameter, can be adapted to suit many power generators, and will perform best in the 300 to 900 RPM range.  The hub is supplied with enough nuts & bolts to assemble the complete rotor, and has 5 mounting holes, each of 6mm in diameter, positioned in a pentagon shape at a PCD of 90mm.  The main boss hole in the hub has a diameter of 74.6mm, and care should be taken to accurately, securely and centrally mount the completed rotor on to your intended application.

In order to achieve the best results from these blades, the final rotor assembly should be balanced by the user prior to being used in any application.  Neither FuturEnergy Ltd nor the blade manufacturers accept any responsibility for any issues arising from unbalanced rotors in any application.  Each blade set will be supplied with instructions on how to perform a ‘static balance’ of the assembled rotor, and it is the user’s responsibility to ensure that every effort has been made to address any balancing issues prior to using these blades.
