The Platypus PM1000 is a robust and reliable 750 watt battery charging micro hydro designed to produce the highest possible output from your site.
B-SR50 Governor and PM1000 Micro Hydro.
PERFORMANCE = MORE USABLE POWER
Maximum efficiency is achieved using our advanced permanent magnet alternators in combination with the unique Platypus impulse runner. Maximum output from low and high flow situations.
RELIABILITY & DURABILITY
Materials of the highest quality are used in construction eg. marine grade 316 stainless steel runner and marine grade aluminium casing to resist abrasion and corrosion. Heavy duty bearing enable us to guarantee 5 years bearing life . No brushes is another feature which means uninterrupted electricity and low maintenance.
Automatic shut down through the control board protects connected electrical equipment and the generator from over-voltage.
A single, easily inter-changeable nozzle delivers the full range of flows. In combination with the Platypus impulse runner, maximum output from seasonal flows can be maintained. Simple installation is via a single 2″ table D flange.
The heart of the PM1000 Charge Control module is the innovative and proven B-SR50 constant voltage taper current regulator. It allows adjustable boost for maximum battery life. The Charge Control Module comes wired complete with finned dump load elements, circuit breaker, battery voltage meter, charge current meter and dump amp meter for easy installation.
