(All of the above kits are
only recommended for turbines that have a maximum 84 ounce head
weight or less and a diameter not exceeding 88" (Blades
must be perfectly balanced as well!)
NOTE: Not for use with
pulleys, belts or any other side loads. This bracket is to be
used for in-line thrusts only.
No Slip Rings
- Our advice on slip rings is to use heavy rubber coated welding
cable and don't worry about twisted wire. Twisted wires in the
pole are an overrated problem in small wind turbines. Heavy rubber
welding cable tends to simply unwind when it is under tension
and the wind turbine head favors turning in the opposite direction
to effect unwinding. Welding cable has also magical qualities
when it comes to taking continuous twisting and has incredible
abrasion resistance when rubbing inside the pipe. Welding cable
will last for about 50 years (Not even slip rings will last 50
NO OTHER TYPE OF WIRE HAS ALL THESE
QUALITIES EXCEPT WELDING cable!
small dab of grease must be used on the welding cables to guide
them both through the wire clamp. After they are greased the
iron will "GLAZE' and not require any further lubrication.
In all our testing some slip rings
eventually failed and required maintenance while over 100 small
test turbines equipped with rubber welding cable operated with
a 100% dependability rate for over 12 years now and counting.
