Installation & Operation
General Guidelines and Warnings
Mounting pole outside diameter MUST NOT exceed 38.1mm for at least the top 0.5m.
Larger section poles must not be used as this will reduce the tower to blade clearance. In
high wind conditions this could cause damage to the Windcharger by allowing the blade to
come into contact with the mounting pole. A broken blade will cause turbine imbalance
with consequent damage.
When turning, the Windcharger is capable of generating voltages in excess of the nominal
voltage. The turbine must never be allowed to rotate unless it is electrically connected to a
regulator or batteries. Connecting an open circuit running turbine to the electrical system
can cause serious damage to system components owing to excessive voltage. Caution must
be exercised at all times to avoid electric shock.
Stopping the turbine – this may be necessary to undertake battery maintenance. If possible
stopping the turbine should be done in low wind speed conditions. The turbine can be
slowed by rotating or orienting the tail fin upwind, this will slow the turbine sufficiently for it
to be safely secured to the pole with rope. Avoid leaving the turbine tied up for any period
of time, we recommend that the turbine either be covered to give protection from the
weather or removed and stored in a dry location. We recommend the use of Marlec charge
regulator that includes a shutdown switch.
Choose a calm day to install the equipment and consider other safety aspects. No attempt
to repair the system should be made until the wind generator is restrained from turning.
The Windcharger is fitted with ceramic magnets, which can be damaged by heavy handling.
The main generator assembly should be treated with care during transit and assembly.
It is essential to observe the correct polarity when connecting the Windcharger and all other
components into an electrical circuit. Reverse connection will damage the Windcharger and
incorrect installation will invalidate the warranty.
The Rutland 504 Windcharger is suitable for sailing boats and some land based
applications. When storm winds are forecast the turbine can be restrained to minimise
wear and tear particularly when installed on land based applications where furling model
windchargers are normally recommended. Note that where the manufacturer recommends
a furling type Windcharger should have been used the warranty is invalidated in cases of
storm damage.
If in doubt, refer to your dealer, a competent electrical engineer or the manufacturer.

Assembly & Installation
Twelve Step Quick Start Guide
1. Choose an open site to expose the Windcharger to a clear flow of wind and avoiding
obstructions. On board mount the Windcharger at least 2.0 metres above the deck and on
land at least 4 - 6 m high. Read the full section on Siting.
2. Choose a mounting pole with an internal diameter of 31.7 mm and external diameter of no
greater than 38.1 mm for the top 0.5 m minimum to (i) prevent accidental damage and (ii)
meet warranty conditions.
3. Mount a charge regulator, from the Marlec range, to a suitable vertical surface and close to
the battery. Follow instructions supplied with the charge regulator.
4. Drill the mounting pole, if required, in preparation to accept and secure the Windcharger.
See Assembly and Installation section.
5. Choose suitable two core cable to connect from the Windcharger to the regulator. Up to 20m
this should be of at least 2.5mm² cross sectional area.
For other distances see the table in Cable Specifications. A short section of 4mm² cross
sectional area is required to link the regulator to the battery.
6. Position the mounting pole ( this may be done on the ground before raising the pole ) so that
the selected cable can be threaded along it.
7. Fit the tail and nose to the Windcharger using fasteners provided.
8. Join the cable threaded through the pole to the Windcharger output cable using the
connector block provided. Wrap with insulating tape. Alternatively use a latching plug and
socket. We recommend looping back the cable and securing with a cable tie to provide strain
relief to the joint.
9. Carefully push the cables down the pole whilst sliding the post adaptor down the pole. Line
up the holes and secure in place with the screws and washers provided. Tighten with the
Allen key. Do not allow the turbine to spin freely.
10.Locate the charge regulator close to the battery and carefully follow ALL the regulator
guidelines and installation sequences for connecting the Windcharger through to the battery.
11.Ensure that the battery connections are permanent as the Windcharger should NEVER be
operated without a connection to the battery.
12.Raise and secure the Windcharger. It can now be allowed to rotate. Follow the “ Up and
Running- Four Points Final Checklist” featured later. Also the “ General Guidelines and
Warnings” section expands on the above points.

Siting the Windcharger
General Considerations
The location and height of the mounting pole or tower for your wind turbine will be the
major factor in the overall performance of your system.
The smooth flow of wind over land and water is often interrupted by a multitude of
obstructions causing wind sheer and turbulence.
Wind sheer describes the interference between the fast moving upper air and the slow
moving air close to the ground and the resulting decrease in average wind speed as one gets
closer to the ground.
Turbulence is caused by the wind passing over obstructions such as moored boats, trees and
Both wind sheer and turbulence diminish with height and can be overcome simply by putting
the turbine sufficiently high above them. It is therefore essential that the wind generator
should be located in an area as free as possible from disturbed wind flow. Bear in mind that
downwind obstructions can be as detrimental to performance as upwind obstructions (Fig.6).

Leisure/Deep Cycle batteries are specifically designed
for good performance in terms of charge/discharge
cycles. Batteries are an important part of the
renewable energy battery charging system and should
be sized according to the load requirements and
provide at least 3 days reserve capacity. This will
reduce cycling, prolong the life of the battery and
ensure system reliability during periods of low wind.
Batteries in parallel to increase
ampere hours (Fig.13).
Note : Batteries must not be joined
in series as this will increase the
voltage rating
x Permanent connections should always be made to the
battery terminals. Never use crocodile clips or similar
devices. Battery terminals should be well greased with
petroleum jelly or similar.
x We strongly recommend that one of the charge
regulators available from Marlec is fitted to prevent
batteries becoming overcharged in strong winds and
during low energy consumption periods. A regulator is
essential where gel and sealed batteries are used.
x Batteries may be linked as shown in the Fig 13. It is

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Inspection and Maintenance
The Rutland 504 requires no scheduled maintenance but an annual inspection should be
carried out to monitor the general condition of the system to ensure the electrical and
mechanical integrity and safety of the system.
WARNING! Before inspection, the turbine should either be lowered to the ground or tied to
prevent the generator from turning. To stop the generator from turning proceed as follows:
1. Turn the wind generator out of the wind (180°) using the tail. A hole is provided in the tail
fin to assist in this. The generator will eventually slow down.
2. Tie a blade to the mounting pole to prevent it from rotating.
Whilst the generator is stationary, the following routine checks should be performed:
1. Check all nuts, bolts and screws for tightness.
2. Check the yaw axis for free rotation.
3. Check tower assembly for condition.
4. Check the tension of the guy wires if applicable. The tension of guy wires should be checked
frequently during the first year.
5. The unit can be wiped with a mild detergent and rinsed with water to remove
dirt and debris.
Note : The Wind charger is designed for continuous running, this achieves maximum resistance
to water ingress. Should the unit be restrained for any extended period it is recommended that
it be covered or removed to a dry location.
Trouble Shooting
In the unlikely event that your Rutland 504 should develop a defect, the turbine should first be
tied to prevent the blades from turning to perform the static tests below. (Follow the procedure
described in the Inspection and Maintenance section). It will be necessary to let it run for the
tests to check for power production.
1. Read the 12 Steps Quick Start Guide and Up and Running sections and be satisfied that
your system complies.
2. Is there sufficient wind? The Rutland 504 needs 5 knots wind speed to start charging. The
wind speed across the turbine blades may be greatly reduced in a marina or built-up area
compared with the reading on a masthead anemometer or weather reports.
3. Static Tests:
x Is the battery in good condition? Check the voltage and electrolyte level of each battery.
x Check electrical continuity throughout the system, especially corrosion and poor
connections in cable joins and connector blocks.
Doc No: SM-150 Issue C 17.03.14
Marlec Eng Co Ltd
Rutland 504 Windcharger
Installation & Operation
4. Running Tests:
x Check for power output from the windcharger following this procedure:
A Set a digital multi-meter to DC Amps, scale of up to 5A or less if possible. Connect the
meter positive (+) probe to the wind gen output positive cable and the meter negative (-) to
the regulator input positive. Provided there is sufficient wind there should be a current
reading. This establishes that power is being delivered.
B Using the same multi-meter setting as above measure between the “regulator to battery” +
and the battery +. Provided there is sufficient wind there should be a current reading. This
establishes if power is passing through the regulator.
C If both above are unsuccessful set the multi-meter to DC Volts. Disconnect the wind
generator from the regulator and connect the meter + to the wind gen + and the meter – to
the wind gen -. Provided there is sufficient wind there should be a variable voltage reading
according to the speed of the wind seen at the wind turbine. This will establish if the wind
generator is able to deliver power or not.
D If tests A and C are successful but test B fails to produce results connect the wind gen
directly to the battery. Set the digital multi-meter to DC Amps and measure power
between the wind gen + and the battery +. If a reading is measured, providing there is
sufficient wind, then the regulator is faulty.
E If the wind turbine fails to deliver any current or open circuit V reading undertake the further
tests below.
5. Mechanical inspection. It may be necessary to remove the Wind charger from its pole for
the following tests.
A Check the brushes and slip ring for wear or damage.
xTo inspect the brushes, remove the tail fin and the plastic nacelle.
xThe brushes can be inspected by removing the caps from the brush holders & withdrawing
the brushes.
x Heavy deposits on the slipping and reduced power indicate a possible reverse connection
to the battery. Clean the slipping with fine glass paper and fit new brushes.
B Check hub for free rotation with generator disconnected from battery.
xIf the hub does not rotate freely, check for a possible short circuit in the wiring.
xIf no wiring fault is found refer to your dealer or manufacturer.
If the above checks have identified a need for spare parts or failed to identify the problem you
should contact Marlec who can advise you of your nearest distributor in their world wide
network. In the first instance we recommend that you contact the company from whom the
product was originally purchased.
If in doubt, refer to your dealer or manufacturer.

de votre éolienne Rutland 504, nous vous recommandons de lire entièrement ce manuel et de vous
familiariser avec son contenu avant de commencer l’installation ou de l’utiliser.
Principales caractéristiques et applications
x Conception aérodynamique pour une bonne prise au vent.
x Tourne avec peu de vent pour optimiser les performances même par vent faible.
x Matériaux de qualité pour une durée de vie optimale, une bonne résistance aux UV et aux
conditions climatiques.
x Permet de charger des batteries 12V.
x Modèle Rutland 504 : conçue pour fonctionner sur des bateaux ou temporairement sur des
x Modèle Rutland 504 efurl : conçue pour des applications terrestres, l’éolienne est dotée du système
électronique automatique « efurl » permettant de ralentir la turbine en cas de vent fort afin de
contrôler sa vitesse et de protéger son mécanisme.
Informations générales et mises en garde
x Le diamètre externe du mât ne doit pas être supérieur à 31.8mm, au moins sur les 50 derniers
centimètres. Ne pas utiliser de mât plus gros au risque de réduire le jeu nécessaire entre les pales et
le mât. En cas de vents forts, les pales risquent de heurter le mât et de s’endommager. Une pale
brisée provoque un déséquilibre capable d’entraîner des dégâts importants.
x Lorsqu’elle fonctionne, l'éolienne peu générer de l'électricité à haute tension, c’est pourquoi elle ne
doit pas tourner tant qu’elle n’est pas reliée à un régulateur ou à des batteries. Raccorder
directement l’éolienne à l’installation électrique peut provoquer des dégâts importants en raison de
la surtension. Pour éviter tout risque d’électrochoc, vous devez être constamment vigilant.
x Stopper l’éolienne – Cela peut s’avérer nécessaire avant d’intervenir sur les batteries. Dans la mesure
du possible, il est préférable de le faire lorsque le vent est faible. L’éolienne peut alors être ralentie
en orientant l’aileron contre le vent ce qui permet de l’immobiliser en l’attachant au mât avec une
corde. Éviter de l’immobiliser trop longtemps. Il est recommandé de la couvrir pour la protéger des
effets du climat ou de la déposer pour l’entreposer en lieu sec. Les régulateurs sont équipé d’un
interrupteur Marche/Arrêt.
x Entres autres éléments de sécurité, effectuer l’installation par temps calme.
x Aucune tentative de réparation ne doit être engagée tant que l'éolienne n'est pas immobilisée.
x L'éolienne est équipée d'aimants céramiques qui peuvent facilement être abîmés lors de leur
manipulation. Elle doit être maniée avec précaution durant le transport et le montage.
x Il est essentiel de respecter les polarités lors du branchement de l'éolienne ainsi que de tous les
autres composants du système électrique. Inverser les branchements endommagerait l'éolienne et
une installation incorrecte annulerait la garantie.

Installation & Operation
x Vents forts – Par vents forts, la sécurité thermique intégrée peut stopper l’éolienne pour
l’empêcher de surchauffer. Dans ce cas, l’éolienne ne produit plus d’électricité et sa vitesse de
rotation peut augmenter, le temps nécessaire au refroidissement. Elle se remet automatiquement
en marche lorsque la température a baissé. Si les vents forts persistent et plus particulièrement par
temps chaud, vous verrez ces cycles se répéter. S’il vous est possible d’accéder à l’éolienne en toute
sécurité, il est préférable de la bloquer temporairement.
x L’éolienne Rutland 504 est conçue pour une utilisation sur des bateaux à voiles ou certaines
applications terrestres. L’éolienne Rutland 504 efurl doit être utilisée dans des zones de vents forts
permanents ou des utilisations terrestres. Lorsque des vents d’orage sont annoncés, l’éolienne peut
être immobilisée pour prévenir les risques d’usure et de casse. Notez bien que le non respect de ces
recommandations fabricant entraine l’invalidation de la garantie produit au cas ou l’éolienne serait
endommagée par des vents forts.

x Nota: Existen otros cargadores eólicos Rutland diseñados para instalaciones permanentes en tierra,
para obtener mayor información, comuníquese con Marlec o visite la página Web
Pautas y advertencias generales
x El diámetro externo del mástil de montaje NO DEBE exceder los 38.1mm aunque sea en los 0 ,5m
superiores. No utilice mástiles más grandes ya que esto reducirá el espacio entre la torre y la paleta.
En condiciones de vientos fuertes, esto puedo provocar daños al cargador eólico ya que la paleta
entra en contacto con el mástil de montaje. Una paleta rota producirá un desequilibrio en la turbina
y daños posteriores.
x Al girar, el cargador eólico es capaz de generar voltajes superiores al voltaje nominal. Nunca permita
que la turbina gire a menos que se encuentre conectada eléctricamente a un regulador o a una
batería. La conexión de una turbina que funciona con un circuito abierto al sistema eléctrico puede
provocar daños graves a los componentes del sistema por el excesivo voltaje. En todo momento,
tenga cuidado y evite las descargas eléctricas.
x Detención de la turbina: puede ser necesaria para realizar el mantenimiento de la batería. Si es
posible, detenga la turbina en condiciones de viento a baja velocidad. Disminuya la velocidad de la
turbina girando o dirigiendo la aleta de la cola contra el viento; esto diminuirá la velocidad de la
turbina lo suficiente como para que ésta se pueda sujetar con una soga y sin peligro al mástil. Evite
dejar la turbina atada durante mucho tiempo; le recomendamos que cubra la turbina para
protegerla de la intemperie o retírela y guárdela en un lugar seco. Le recomendamos que utilice el
regulador de carga Marlec que incluye un interruptor de desconexión.
x Elija un día sin viento para instalar el equipo y tenga en cuenta otros aspectos de seguridad.
x No intente reparar el sistema hasta que el generador de viento este sujeto y no pueda girar.
x El cargador eólico esta ajustado con imanes cerámicos que pueden dañarse durante una fuerte
manipulación. Tenga cuidado con el ensamblaje del generador principal durante el transporte y el

Installation & Operation
x Vientos fuertes: durante vientos fuertes el termostato incorporado al cargador eólico puede ponerse
en funcionamiento para evitar que el generador se recaliente. En este modo, la salida se detendrá y
la turbina se acelerará temporariamente hasta alcanzar una temperatura menor y el generador se
encuentre nuevamente conectado y cargando. Se lo puede ver girar durante prolongados vientos
fuertes, particularmente en temperaturas ambientales elevadas. Si es accesible y seguro, quizás
prefiera sujetar temporariamente la turbina.
x Es esencial respetar la polaridad correcta al conectar el cargador eólico y todos los demás
componentes en un circuito eléctrico. Una conexión inversa dañará al cargador eólico y la instalación
incorrecta anulará la garantía.
x El aerogenerador Rutland 504 es adecuado para su uso en los barcos de vela y algunas aplicaciones
terrestres. El efurl Rutland 504 se debe utilizar siempre en instalaciones permanentes o en tierra en
zonas de vientos fuertes. Cuando se pronostican vientos de tormenta el aerogenerador restringe su
fuerza para minimizar el desgaste. Tenga en cuenta que cuando el fabricante recomienda que debería
haberse utilizado un tipo de aerogenerador con furling, la garantía queda invalidada en los casos de
daños causados por tormenta
x Si tiene alguna duda, consulte con el proveedor, un ingeniero eléctrico competente o el fabricante.

Allgemeine Richtlinien & Gefahrenhinweise
x Die Mastmontage DARF den Außendurchmesser von 38.1mm, zumindest den Oberen von 0.5m
NICHT überschreiten. Größere Mastquerschnitte dürfen nicht verwendet werden, da dies zu einer
geringeren Distanz zwischen dem Mast und dem Rotorblattspiels führt. Bei hohen Windbedingungen
könnte es beim Windcharger zu Schaden führen, da das Rotorblatt mit dem festmontierten Mast in
Kontakt kommen könnte. Ein zerbrochenes Rotorblatt verursacht ein Ungleichgewicht der Turbine
und dementsprechend Schäden.
x Bei der Drehbewegung ist der Windcharger in der Lage Stromspannungen höher als die
Nennspannung zu erzeugen. Es darf nie zugelassen werden, dass die Turbine rotiert, es sei denn das
sie elektrisch mit einem Aufladekontrollgerät oder mit Batterien angeschlossen ist. Der Anschluss
einer laufenden Turbine im Leerlauf an das Elektrosystem kann ernsthafte Schäden bei den
Anlagebestandteilen, aufgrund der überhöhten elektrischen Spannung hervorrufen. Vorsicht ist stets
zu bewahren zur Vermeidung eines Stromschlages.
x Das Anhalten der Turbine – wird bei der Wartung der Batterie notwendig. Falls möglich sollte die
Turbine bei Bedingungen mit niedrigen Windgeschwindigkeiten gestoppt werden. Die Turbine kann
durch das Rotieren oder durch das windwärts legen der Heckschaufel des Rotorblattes abgebremst
werden, das führt zu einem Anhalten der Turbine, sodass sie sicher mit einem Seil an den den Mast
befestigt werden kann. Vermeiden Sie, dass die Turbine für längere Zeit festgebunden bleibt, wir
empfehlen stattdessen, dass die Turbine entweder abgedeckt wird, um sie gegen die Witterung zu
schützen oder entfernt und in einem trockenen Raum gelagert wird. Wir empfehlen den Nutzen des
Marlec Aufladekontrollgerätes mit einem integrierten Schalter zur Stromabschaltung.
x Wählen Sie einen windstillen Tag für die Montage der Anlage und beachten Sie dabei weitere
x Es darf kein Reparaturversuch an der Anlage stattfinden, bis alle Drehbewegungen des
Windgenerators gedrosselt sind.

Installation & Operation
x Der Windcharger ist mit einem Keramikmagnet ausgestattet, der bei einer schwerwiegenden
Handhabung beschädigt werden kann. Der Hauptstromgenerator sollte mit Sorgfalt während dem
Transport und der Montage behandelt werden.
x Es ist notwendig die korrekte Polarität zu beachten, wenn der Windcharger und alle weiteren
Bestandteile an den elektrischen Stromkreis angeschlossen werden. Ein Rückwärtsstrom wird den
Windcharger beschädigen und eine inkorrekte Installation führt dazu, dass die Garantie
gegenstandslos gemacht wird.
x Der Rutland 504 Windcharger eignet sich für Segelboote und für einige Anwendungen zu Land. Der
Rutland 504 efurl sollte dann eingesetzt werden wenn es sich um dauerhaften starken Wind oder
Landinstallationen handelt. Wenn Sturmwinde vorhergesagt werden kann die Turbine gedrosselt
werden, um einen Verschleiß zu reduzieren.
x Anmerkung, wenn es vom Hersteller empfohlen wurde, dass ein Windcharger der Furlmatic Modelle
für jegliche Art von Segelvorrichtungen zu nutzen sei, wird die Garantie im Falle eines
Sturmschadens gegenstandlos gemacht.
x Im Zweifelsfall wenden Sie sich bitte an Ihren Fachhändler, an einen fachkundigen Elektroingenieur
oder an den Hersteller.

Linee guida generali e avvertenze
xIl diametro esterno del palo di montaggio NON DEVE superare i 38,1 mm almeno per i 0,5 m della
parte superiore. Non devono essere utilizzati pali di sezione maggiore in quanto ridurrebbero la
distanza tra la pala e la torre. In condizioni di vento forte potrebbero verificarsi danni al generatore
eolico poiché la pala potrebbe entrare in contatto con il palo di montaggio. Una pala spezzata
provocherà uno squilibrio della turbina e un conseguente danno.
xMentre il generatore eolico gira, è in grado di generare tensioni in eccesso rispetto alla tensione
nominale. La turbina non deve mai ruotare quando non è collegata elettricamente ad un regolatore o
a batterie. Collegare una turbina a circuito aperto in funzione all'impianto elettrico si possono
verificare gravi danni ai componenti dell'impianto a causa della tensione eccessiva. Occorre esercitare
cautela in ogni momento al fine di evitare scosse elettriche.
xArresto della turbina: potrebbe essere necessario per effettuare la manutenzione della batteria. Se
possibile, la turbina deve essere arrestata con venti a bassa velocità. La turbina può essere rallentata
ruotando o orientando il timone di coda sopravento, rallentando così la turbina a sufficienza per
poterla fissare in modo sicuro al palo con una corda. Evitare di lasciare la turbina legata. Si consiglia di
coprire o di proteggere la turbina dalle intemperie oppure di rimuoverla e di conservarla in un luogo
asciutto. Si consiglia l'uso del regolatore di carica Marlec dotato di interruttore di spegnimento.
xScegliete una giornata tranquilla per l'installazione dell'apparecchiatura e rispettate tutte le misure di
xNon deve essere fatto nessun tentativo di riparare l'impianto finché non viene impedito al generatore
eolico di ruotare.
xIl generatore eolico è dotato di magneti di ceramica, che possono essere danneggiati se non vengono
maneggiati con cura. Il blocco principale del generatore deve essere trattato con cura durante il
trasporto e il montaggio.

Installation & Operation
xVenti forti: con venti forti il termostato integrato del generatore eolico può prevenire il
surriscaldamento del generatore. In questa modalità, la produzione si interromperà e la turbina
aumenterà temporaneamente la velocità finché non verrà raggiunta una temperatura più bassa e il
generatore non verrà di nuovo attivato per la ricarica. Questo ciclo può essere effettuato in presenza
di venti forti prolungati soprattutto con temperature ambientali elevate. Se possibile, nel pieno
rispetto delle misure di sicurezza, è preferibile bloccare temporaneamente la turbina.
xÈ fondamentale rispettare la corretta polarità quando si collega il generatore eolico e tutti gli altri
componenti ad un circuito elettrico. La connessione inversa danneggerà il generatore eolico e
l'installazione non corretta invaliderà la garanzia
xIl generatore eolico Rutland 504 è adatto per barche a vela e alcune applicazioni a terra.
Il Rutland 504 efurl dovrà essere sempre utilizzato in caso di applicazioni terrestri permanenti o in aree
sogette a forti vente. Quando si prevedono venti di tempesta la ventola podrà essere rallentata
minimizzandone il logorio. Si noti che qualora il produttore raccomandase l'utilizzo di un Windcharger
modello furl la garanzia verrà invalidata in caso di danni provocati dal maltempo.
xIn caso di dubbi, contattare il proprio rivenditore, un ingegnere elettrico o il produttore.
