The Wind Turbine Kit is a great way to explain the function and benefits of using wind power to generate electricity.
- 1x 1.5 - 6 V generator motor
- 6x propeller blades
- Three gear ratio options (3:1, 1:1, and 1:3)
- Motor, LED and Piezo buzzer modules
- Dual-scale voltmeter with operating instructions
- 2 x 4 mm stackable leads (red and black)
- Storage case
- Activity sheets
The gears feature a brass hub with set screws to allow easier gear changing. The voltmeter has a easy to read display.
This kit contains a clear vinyl cap on the generator motor to protect the wires from damage, and the generator from moisture. The rotating contact connection between the top of the turbine and the upright has been redesigned to give improved performance and durability.
The kit contains everything to build a desk-mounted wind turbine (height approx. 70 cm). This includes removable propeller blades, a selection of gears, a dual-scale bench voltmeter, a motor box, a buzzer box and a LED box so you can explore powering these components using the electricity generated by the wind turbine. It can be used outdoors in the wind or indoors with a desk fan. This kit can be used as it is or you can add a data logger and sensors to monitor changes in output due to number of blades, the angle of the blades or changes in wind speed.
