Wind Turbines
Rutland FM910-3 Furlmatic Windcharger
for free power wherever you want it!
Rutland Windchargers are without doubt one of the most unique and
versatile battery chargers in use throughout the world.
The Rutland FM910-3 combines the established Furlmatic robust mechanical
design with our latest 3 phase generator technology to deliver better
performance and greater reliability than ever before. Primarily designed for
land based applications, the Rutland FM910-3 has been used worldwide to
provide year round power generation.
Technical Features and Benefits
- Efficient power conversion
- Rutland Windchargers generate greater ampere hours in real wind conditions
than turbines of equal and often larger diameter! This is because our unique
high inertia alternator designs maintain momentum between gusts unlike
other designs that stall and have to rebuild up speed. This Rutland “flywheel”
action results in more free power generated into your battery.
- Rutland Windchargers are the lowest cost per watt of power generated owing
to our many in-house manufacturing efficiencies and volume of production
for our worldwide customers
- More ampere hours are generated because of the Rutlands’ low wind speeds
start up (of just 2.6 m/s) so power is being generated in the most typical wind
speeds as well as being powerful in the strong winds
- Automatic ‘furling’ tail fin directs turbine out of wind above 16 m/s for
gale protection
- Our low friction 3 phase alternators give a smooth and silent output
- Computer designed efficient aerofoil blades. The fine profile blades have a
positive one-way-only fit that have been tested to withstand a loading with a
safety factor 10 times the turbine’s maximum rpm.
- EEC directive 89/336/EEC compliance ensures no radiated interference
- Automatic thermostat protection in prolonged gales
- Modern, durable materials for excellent reliability and product longevity,

Accessories for up and running
MOUNTING POLE
Mounting pole for land based systems – the 910-3 can be installed on land using a 6m length of 48mm outside
diameter tube with 41 mm internal diameter. The mounting pole can be fixed into the ground or on pivot type
base. A minimum height of 6m and of 4 guy wires is recommended. More details are given in the installation
manual. A Land Tower and Rigging kit is available from Marlec. The Land Tower kit comprises 3x tubes with
joiners and a ground fixing spike giving an overall height of 6.4m. This must be supported by the Rigging Kit.
VOLTAGE CONTROLLER
Choose from 2 electronic regulators. Both models progressively slow down the turbine when the batteries
become full thus reducing long term wear and tear to the turbine.
HRS 913 Regulator
Single battery bank over
Voltage regulation with LED
indicators for charging
status and battery voltage.
HRDX Controller
Easy to use controller for
charging up to 2 separate
battery banks plus a solar
panel input rated up to
100W. LCD displays
charge currents and
battery voltage readings.
Shutdown switch.
Note that voltage regulators should always be sited within1.5m of the battery to minimise voltage losses and
ensure accuracy of battery regulation.
BATTERIES
Deep cycle batteries should always be used for wind & solar charging. A good quality range of sealed AGM
(absorbed glass matt) and gel batteries are available from Marlec.
CABLE & CONNECTORS
Cable thicknesses are determined by the run of cable distance. For cable runs up o 20m/60ft 2.5mm2 or
13AWG cable is recommended to maximise electrical efficiencies. Permanent battery connectors are
recommended.
SOLAR PANELS
Solar panels are a perfect complement to wind power, talk to Marlec about the BP Solar range of photovoltaic
panels to give a seasonal balance of power to your system.
INVERTERS
Inverters convert battery power to 230V for appliances such as laptops, TV’s etc. Contact Marlec to discover
the range available.
Tried and Tested Applications:
- Telecommunications at isolated location
- Remote broadband connections
- Roadside safety signs (see picture)
- Environmental monitoring e.g. water, air etc.
- Land based navigation lighting and radio equipment
…… these and many other applications where grid power is unavailable.
