Marlec Rutland 504 Windcharger

The Marlec Rutland 504 is a super compact turbine that is great for using wind power for trickle charging. You can be sure that when you arrive on board your batteries will be well charged up and ready for your appliances. Even whilst sailing the Marlec Rutland 504 powers on…

Marlec 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 Marlec Rutland 504 installed on board weekend sailors will experience the convenience of fully charged batteries for engine starting.

• The Marlec Rutland 504 features new aerodynamic styling.
• A sharper nose dome to improve the flow of wind to the turbine
• A longer tail fin to improve the orientation of the turbine to wind and maintain stability.
• Higher grade body and nose material with improved UV stability and durability.

Marlec 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 Marlec Rutland alternator design accumulates more energy than any other comparable wind generators available and you'll always see a Marlec Rutland spinning in the lightest of breezes!

The Marlec Rutland 504 model continues to incorporate the “safety turbine” found on its highly successful predecessor the Marlec 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.

Marlec Rutland 504 Features & Benefits

  • Efficient power conversion – Marlec Rutland Windchargers generate greater ampere-hours in real wind conditions than turbines of equal and often larger diameter! That’s because between gusts, our unique high inertia alternator designs maintain momentum with a flywheel effect where other units stall. This adds up to more free power generated and stored for you.
  • Marlec Rutland Windchargers are the lowest cost per watt of power generated. Not only is the generator efficient but volume production for our worldwide customers and in-house manufacturing here at Marlec ensures that we deliver a consistently high quality at an affordable cost.
  • Low friction 3-phase alternator gives a smooth and silent output. The low wind speed start up means power is almost continuously produced and certainly in the most typical conditions as well as being powerful in higher winds.
  • Marlec Rutland 504 turbines are made from computer designed efficient aerofoil blades whose tips are joined by an outer protective ring.
  • No radiated interference. Complies with EEC Directive 89/336/EEC

The published curves based on measured data and use ongoing actual performance data collected and monitored over long periods of time of the turbines running in real wind conditions. This means the turbines are also subject to side winds, upwinds and sudden changes of wind direction (these are the causes of turbulence) experienced at a user’s typical installation. The curves represent a truer reflection of the power output you can expect from your Marlec Rutland Windcharger compared with many other turbines.
