The Honeywell Wind Turbine

Gearless Blade Tip Power System ™ – the future of wind power.

The Honeywell Wind Turbine utilizes a system of magnets and stators surrounding its outer ring, capturing power at the blade tips where speed is greatest, practically eliminating mechanical resistance and drag. Rather than forcing the available wind to turn a generator, the perimeter power system becomes the generator by swiftly passing the blade tip magnets through the copper coil banks mounted onto the enclosed perimeter frame. The Blade Tip Power System ™ addresses past constraints such as size, noise, vibration and output. WindTronics’ proprietary systems are breaking traditional technological barriers across multiple markets, for homes and businesses, for both energy generation and energy recapture even in moderate winds. The Honeywell Wind Turbine is the highest output, lowest cost per kWh installed turbine ever made (in class and size). So powerful, so simple.

Today’s wind energy… like no other.

How to redesign a turbine to start at 0.5 (1/2) mph

By practically eliminating mechanical resistance and drag, the Honeywell Wind Turbine produces up to 1500 kWh’s per year depending on height and location. The Honeywell Wind Turbine’s BTPS perimeter power system and unique design of the multi-stage blades allows the system to react quickly to changes in wind speed, ensuring that the maximum wind energy is captured, without the typical noise and vibration associated with traditional wind turbines.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine is a gearless, wind turbine that measures just 6 feet (1.8 m) in diameter, weighs 185 lbs (84 kgs) and has an increased operating span over traditional turbines with a start-up speed as low as 0.5 mph (0.2 m/s), with an auto shut off at 38 mph (17.0 m/s). Traditional gearbox turbines require minimum wind speeds of 7.5 mph (3.5 m/s) to cut in and start generating power.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine is designed to be installed by a licensed electrician wherever energy is consumed, turning homes and businesses from points of total consumption to distributed energy sources, in a cost effective and efficient manner. The Honeywell Wind Turbine and Smart Box Inverter/ controller has a combined MSRP $6,495 (installation not included).

Where to place your turbine.

Directional Fins
The directional fins continuously guide the turbine for maximum wind exposure. The system starts turning at 0.5 mph (0.2 m/s), automatically shuts down in high winds (+38 mph [+17.0 m/s]) through its electromagnetic braking system and is designed to withstand winds up to 140 mph (62.6 m/s).

Wind Energy Recommendations and FAQ’s

Many factors will affect the output of the turbine at each location depending on placement. Your location can be effected by trees, terrain and obstructions such as buildings next door, even placement on one end of a building or the other can affect the output. Correct site assessment is important to enhance the performance of your turbine regardless of your product choice.
Always seek the highest elevation and lowest obstruction field as possible (33 feet minimum, higher the better).
You may advise your city, town or neighbors that you’re installing a new wind turbine, but at 185 lbs, 6’, 35 dB at 10 feet, it may be not necessary. We’re here to help you.
An average annual wind rating of 12 mph is recommended as a good minimum wind speed to keep in mind, off grid locations might consider less.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine is designed for all environments from hot to cold and coastal to mountaintops.
Electrical connection is very similar to a backup generator connected to the building or solar power to the grid.
The system is designed to be installed by a licensed electrical contractor. Our Smart Swap warranty program allows contractors to replace components easily
The roof box QuadPod system is designed for pitched or flat roof tops. As roof construction and roof lines vary, pole mounted installations are recommended for residential environments for optimal cost, flexibility and performance. A standard utility pole can be easily installed in most markets for under one thousand dollars.
WindTronics has created a range of tools to assist in identifying proper site selection based on wind, rates and rebates.

Energy Management Systems

The SmartBox Control System incorporates a proprietary control system that is specifically designed to capture the most efficient power from wind at its unpredictable patterns and dynamics. It functions as a sophisticated energy management system and also provides a simple and seamless interconnection to the grid. The Honeywell Wind Turbine and the SmartBox offers cutting-edge turbine technology to the individual, enabling each to harness, utilize and manage the energy at their local wind zone. The SmartBox is the control system that consists of a charge controller and a non-grid tie 1.5 kW inverter. Included within the charge controller is an automatic AC transfer switch that will automatically switch between your AC grid and power generated via the turbine.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine works seemingly with Grid Tie or DC Charge controllers.

Utility Grid Tie System

The wind turbine can also be configured with the Aurora® grid tie inverter for simple connectivity to any utility or building (F.I.T. or Net Metering).
Aurora inverters operate at 96% efficiency and comply with standards set for grid tied operation, safety, and electromagnetic compatibility including: UL1741/IEEE1547 & CSA-C22.2 N.107.1- 01, VDEO126, CEI 11-20, DK5940, CEI64- 8, IEC 61683, IEC 61727, EN50081, EN61000, CE certification, El Real Decreto RD1663/2000 de España.
