Honeywell Wind Turbine by WindTronics

April 25, 2011
A small gearless wind turbine that produces power in 2 mph winds.

Weighing less than 185 pounds and measuring only 6 feet in diameter, the Honeywell Wind Turbine produces up to 1500kWh annually, depending on height and location. This gearless wind turbine features an innovative Blade Tip Power System, which utilizes a system of magnets and stators surrounding its outer ring to capture power at the blade tips where speed is greatest, practically eliminating mechanical resistance and drag. This enables the Honeywell Wind Turbine to start turning at 0.5 mph and generating energy in 2 mph of wind.

The Honeywell Wind Turbine gives customers the choice to have the turbine mounted directly on a rooftop or use a pole. In addition customers can choose to connect the power directly to the building, to the grid, or to batteries using one of three connector options:

  • Grid-tie – using the Power One Aurora Grid Tie Inverter to feed renewable power to any utility worldwide
  • Non-Grid Tie – using the WindTronics battery power management system called the SmartBox that converts wind power into electricity for the building
  • Direct DC – an option which captures the power directly into 12-, 24-, or 48-volt batteries for storage in remote areas
