Product Description

Product Description

Solar/wind Max: 1200w, Wind only: 1000w rated, solar panel is not included.

From the Manufacturer

Our high performance, reliable WindMax wind turbine features advanced electromagnetic over speed control, aerodynamic blade speed limitation, solar/wind dual output capability, reliable light weight generator design using die-casting technique and high performance rare earth neodymium magnets, advanced airfoil designed blades made of mixed nylon and reinforced fiber glass using injection molding and thermoplastic technologies for consistency, high strength. HYenergy Windmax Wind Turbines are the one of the most well built, reliable, most efficient and cost-effective small wind turbines available on the market today. The HYenergy Wind turbine system is the perfect choice in a smart investment for a renewable energy solution built on advanced technologies. The HYenergy wind turbine system defines a new level of superior performance and reliability in the small wind turbine industry. Brushless, strong Neodymium magnet PMA, unique winding and multi pole design reduce the start-up torque of the alternator to assure the HYenergy wind turbine have great performance at low wind speed. Designed with both reliability and performance in mind, HYenergy Wind Turbines feature maintenance free design, high reliability and consistent performance. The result: greater energy production yield for all wind speeds and lowest ownership cost. A small home wind turbine is a long term investment. Windmax H series wind turbines lead the small wind turbine industry by eliminating problematic mechanical furling over speed control which requires a lot of maintenance and causes wind turbine failure. Windmax H series wind turbine improves the reliability and performance by advanced electromagnetic speed limitation supplemented by aerodynamic speed limitation by blade deformation. Electromagnetic braking is used in combination with Aerodynamic braking to reduce the rotational speed of the generator in high wind condition.

I bought this turbine a year ago and it has been working perfectly.
Johnny
I read their Wind Turbine Guidebook, and the assembly/installation process is not difficult and its pretty straight forward.

Unfortunately it overpowered the break at40mph wind speed and burned up the associated wiring.

I purchased the 1200 watt 5 blade wind turbine Windmax and it arrived today so I have not yet installed but will report on that when I do.
The package did not come with a packing slip. The plastic envelope on the outside of the box where the slip is often located was empty and it was not inside the box. It was packed well, but the screws were out of the plastic package and were lose within a compartment. The equipment appeared to come from China because of the English and Chinese symbols on the turbine housing. Visually, the equipment looked good with a nice white painted finish. The wind tail rudder was larger than the picture showed and it appeared very effective. I noticed the unit was heavier than I expected, and it had a rugged quality about it.

There were no installation instructions per say, but they did include a "Wind Turbine Guidebook," which covered five of the HYenerty models. Their Turbine Guidebook was photo copied or they ran it off on a printer that was losing ink because the last four pages were poor quality....some of the words were badly faded and it is difficult to read.

What they didn't tell you in the online sales pitch was that they do not warranty the turbine if you install it yourself. In fact, they specify that you should not even purchase it unless you have someone professionally install it for you. And they must approve the installer, which is never stated in their on-line written sales pitch. They include a four page document with all the reasons why they won't give you a warranty, and all the hoops you have to jump through to have them consider replacing a defective unit. The vendor especially insists that you even have to find an installer who must first contact them for approval before purchase and installation.

I read their Wind Turbine Guidebook, and the assembly/installation process is not difficult and its pretty straight forward.

The wind mill functions but has some serious design flaws. Rated to 60mph the wind gen burned out the load shedding resistor grid once the battery bank was fully charged, and wind speed exceeded 26mhp. I fixed it and it burned out the new resistors as well. I replaced the resistors with 1kw of heat lamps and it seems be working ok. secondly the charge controller has a dynamic break attached to a manual shutoff switch for shutting the wind gen down in high wind situations. Unfortunately it overpowered the break at40mph wind speed and burned up the associated wiring. I repaired this and installed a light switch shorting two phase of the gen which serves to shut the gen down manually when needed. In all, it is working nicely after my modifications, but if you dont have solid electrical skills stay away from this gen.

The above configuration lasted for about a year then one day wind speed exceeded 100mph and the windgen overpowered the jury rigged dynamic brake. End result was my charge controller caught on fire, wires burned open at the terminal board and the windgen freewheeled... at 100mph+ it made a reel nice kite as it straightened an 3/8 eyebolt on a guidewire turnbuckle.. last i saw of my pretty little windmill it was headed east..

I decided not to replace the windgen because if windspeed could hit 100mph once it will do it again. If you decide to buy one of these wire it with #6awg and scrap the charge controller that comes with it. run the 3 phase to a shorting contactor that will short the windings for a high wind shutdown, buy a xantrexc60 or similar charge controller and run a dump load of around 2kw. good luck!

We got the turbine up and running in just a few hours! It fit easily onto a standard 2" steel pipe. It only weighed
about 50 pounds so it wasn't too difficult to mount. It came with a charge controller included which was nice. The controller has it's own dump load and has 3 led lights indicating what it's doing. Later we will add solar panels to the unit. Once the wind picked up the turbine started spinning wonderfully. The output was better than expected and quickly charged 8 12-volt deep cycle batteries. We had the batteries running into an outback off-grid inverter which handled the output of the turbine quite easily. So far I am very pleased with this purchase!

I bought this turbine a year ago and it has been working perfectly.
I checked several sites and found this to be the best priced.
I am planing to get another one in about 3 months.
Highly recommended.

I have had one up for 3 years makes power everyday the wind blows .my tower has fallen down broken the blades and bent the tail.
put new blades on it (different manufacture wind max don't have replacement parts) put it back up and making power again with bent tail.
have never had a issue with controller or built in dump load. I would recommend if wind is going to blow up to 100 have a way to lower it down. the wind turbine will handle the wind speed most towers you have it on will not .(lesson learned)
starts turning in low winds..(4-6) needs about 10-20 mph winds to make good power 20-40 to make max power.it has dropped my power bill by $30 grid tie. (additional equipment needed to grid tie) dose not come with wire to run to your battery's.(bigger the better) I am going to buy again !!!
