Aquair 100

Water Mode

The Aquair 100 water turbine has been designed


specifically for charging batteries over long distance
crossings and converts to a wind turbine at anchor.
High reliability designed to deliver constant
battery charging power over long distance
crossings and endure harsh deep sea conditions.
Fit and forget self-aligns in the water and will not
noticeably slow the yacht.
Small - does not take up deck space

Build quality- built with Ampairs world renowned


marine grade build quality with four decades of
continual design improvement.

Unobtrusive - easy mounting in water mode and
hoists high-up at anchor
Dependable - will not burn out at any speed

Applications

Wind Mode- The Aquair 100 can also be used as a wind

Water Mode- The Aquair 100 is designed for yachts

turbine when at anchor or in harbour. Using a rope


only, hoist-in-the-rigging system (HIR). A halyard lifts
the Aquair 100 away from busy cockpit into clear air. No
noise or vibration to worry about! A pole mount option
is available for yachts with stern gantry or similar. A
short pole is welded, clamped etc. to an existing
structure. A single electrical connection then serves
wind and water modes.

cruising at 4-15 kts. The standard pitch turbine


surfaces at 7kts and skips at higher speeds, so a
coarse pitch turbine is used on yachts which sail at
8-12 kts. At 7kts the turbines drag is 17 lbs: it will not
noticeably slow the yacht . The standard stainless steel
gimbal ring mounting provides a simple and automatic
alignment method and can be rigged into the push-pit
or mounted in the optional frame for boats without a
push-pit.
The shaft connector is designed to break to save the
generator and push pit if the turbine becomes trapped.

Charge controller regulator & warranty


Power Regulation - The Aquair 100 can be used without
a regulator in water mode. If you prefer autonomy and
will also use the turbine in wind mode, any of the 100
series regulators can be used

Support - Ampair marine turbines come with a 5 year


warranty as standard as well as AmpairCaretm - your
access to lifetime worldwide technical support.
