The Turbine Tail adapter kit by Soliex, Inc.(since 2009) was designed using DFMA concepts (Design For Manufacture & Assembly). The finished product neatly organizes purchased components into the perfect machine for any application where off-grid power and/or battery storage is needed. The four major components in the kit are manufactured from corrosion resistant 304 SS and 6061-T6 AL with SS hardware and Black Acetal bearings/bushings making it virtually maintenance free.
The Turbine Tail adapter kit supports purpose built PMG's with up to 1600W - 12 to 24 volts, and GM alternators with the 10SI/12SI frame(re-wound with more wire for best results). I have no affiliation with this supplier, that said, these are the Generator, Rotor and Slip Ring components I used and will need to be purchased by you to get any warranties in your name.
The Turbine Tail adapter kit is engineered to use gravity as built-in protection and features a long hinged tail that keeps the rotor disk facing windward until stronger winds force the rotor disc to rotate about the spindle centerline. If the winds are strong enough it will continue to rotate and slowdown the rotor, automatically preventing over-speed damage! - This feature effectively eliminates the need to monitor wind speeds! -
