  • For 12/24 Volts systems
  • Programmable idler neutral gear voltage e.g. 14,4 V
  • 40 A / 12 V maximum current
  • Max. current programmable depending on battery capacity
  • Programmable converter charger with digital display
  • Solar panel connection up to 400 W / 16 A
  • 20 A / 12 V socket for watermaker, inverter 220 V / 50 Hz for charging cellular phones, TV, PC etc.

 

Generator

  • Smooth running through specific planetary gear
  • Low ratio prevents high motor speeds
  • Optimised efficiency through specific transmission
  • Double seals (2 O-rings each)
  • Multiple-bearing propeller shaft
  • Easy to dismantle
  • Hard anodized aluminium housing and special synthetic cover.
  • Streamlined anodized aluminium body
  • All screws (A4) are additionally protected against corrosion by Duralac
  • No propeller forces transmitted to the gearbox due to special coupling
  • Almost inaudible in the water
  • Charging from 4 knots upwards (depending on the preset incline of the propeller blades)

 

Propeller

  • Main body manufactured in a special synthetic material
  • Stove enamelled aluminium propeller blades.
  • Blade angle is infinitely adjustable depending on type of the boat (speed)
  • Propeller blades are replaceable (i.e. after collision)
  • Blades CFD (software for numerical solutions) are designed specifically for generator with optimized form and twisting

 

Regulator

  • Up to 16/32 volt adjustable, perfect to compensate voltage loss
  • With built-in free wheel (propeller turns freely when fully reaches the max. retained battery voltage)
  • Additional connection for solar panels or wind generator
  • Additional connection for direct output, which will be automatically shut down when it has sufficient battery voltage.
  • Transom bracket system
  • Solid stainless steel construction (Aisi 316)
  • Quick fastener device for mounting on transom bracket
  • Foldable on full speed throught 4x ratio line reduction
  • Generator blocks in working position, no pressure on line (easy release means light pulling on the red line)
  • Can be folded in fully upside position (for ex. in harbour)
  • Lateral stoppers to avoid generator hitting on transom
  • NEW: included, digital display
  • NEW: additional switch for free wheel
  • NEW: additional alarm when battery is completely charged
  • NEW: more potential

Basic bracket for transom

Hydro Charger komplett


Stainless steel bracket with adjustable segment, folding-up with a line. Folding under speed is no problem, because there is a line reduction with 4x ratio.
Also there is a blockage when the generator is in the water. Quick fastener device for mounting on transom bracket.
