Marlec is proud to announce their latest innovation in micro wind turbines, the Rutland 914i Windcharger which intelligently uses Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology to optimize the generator operation to perfectly match the speed of the turbine thereby achieving a highly efficient and reliable power output.
It is universally accepted that with a Rutland Windcharger mounted on board the modern sailor can enjoy the comforts of ample lighting, navigation equipment, essential communications and of course laptop usage all with a reduced engine running time.
The new 914i takes things on a step further. It is Marlec's latest and most powerful flagship model to date and you may be asking yourself how this major improvement has been achieved?
Marlec knows that space on board a yacht is at an absolute premium so their main goal is to always get more power from less turbine!
They have achieved the power production increase through the use of modern electronic controllers programmed to intelligently match the characteristics of the generator to the constantly varying speed of the micro wind turbine.
Thus they are able to extract more power from the same "swept area" of blades for our customers while the resulting increase in efficiency also brings less wear and tear on the components.
The 914i is as quiet as ever. It more than matches the reputation of our previous models for on board quietness, so you can rest easy, literally.
