TOUGH AND FULLY WARRANTED
The enhanced performance three phase induction generator in each Platypus Power micro hydro unit are proven, tough and reliable technology. All models are fitted with long life bearings, have excellent electrical characteristics, and are IP65 rated.
You can have even more confidence in the exceptional Platypus Power ‘1 plus 2’ year warranty.
EASY TO USE RELIABLE CONTROLS
The unique Platypus Power Advanced Regulator protects your turbine – controlling the speed of the generator to keep the voltage stable. The regulator module includes the electronic control unit and dump element/s to keep the generator constantly at full load.
Meters on the control panel give instant indication of turbine performance, consumer power usage and dump current.
LED indicators display the generator status.
The regulator automatically diverts and dissipates unused energy through the dump element/s.
Automatic shut down through the control board protects connected electrical equipment and the generator from over-voltage.
RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY
Platypus Power’s simple design and use of the highest quality materials means long life and low maintenance.
The innovative hybrid Platypus impulse runner is directly coupled to the generator. 316 marine grade stainless steel casing and runner resist abrasion and corrosion.
Nozzles are easily interchangeable to suit seasonal flows.
One dump resistance is all that is needed for single phase.
