Primus Windpower offers a Wind Control Panel for the Primus Air Breeze and Air 40 12V wind turbines. The Primus Wind Control Panel 2-ARAC-103 is a 25A analog ammeter equipped with a On/Off circuit breaker and a Stop/Run switch. The 2-ARAC-103 control panel can also be used with the Air X and Air 30 24V turbines.
The ammeter indicates the turbine’s current production, this analog meter eliminates parasitic current draw commonly found in digital displays. The Stop/Run switch provides direct control over the turbine, limiting the spinning of the blades while the On/Off switch will stop all current flow into the batteries. When the turbine is in STOP mode and electric break is created and the blades stop all rotation, only in strong winds the blades may experience some movement.
The Wind Control Panel is easily installed with only four wires; two for the wind turbine (positive and negative) and two (positive and negative) for your batteries. The Primus Wind Control Panel is fully calibrated and ready to be installed on any wall, cabinet or enclosure.

Primus Wind Power is located just outside of Denver, Colorado and has been a leading producer of wind turbines in the United States since the 1990's. They acquired the AIR turbine from Southwest WindPower (in 2013). Primus manufactures their products here in the U.S. and ships directly from their Colorado location. They are committed to satisfying off-grid, marine and residential customers with high-end wind turbines for many different applications. They have engineered five different turbine models to better suit their clienteles needs for specific projects.
The Primus turbines weigh less than 20 pounds but they are extremely durable, reliable and efficient. In addition to their turbines, they also design and manufacture their own blades and control devices such as the Wind Control Panel. They offer their most common replacement parts and accessories to the public including blade replacement kits, replacement nose cones, pole and stays mounts for marine purposes, hardware kits, stop/start switches, and control panels for improved monitoring.
In their literature (website) Primus offers several detailed graphs showing peak wind and solar resources in certain regions throughout the U.S., and whether these regions benefit more from solar, wind, or a combination of the two. Primus Wind Power offers a 5-year warranty on all their wind turbines, as well as accessible technical support staff for any issues that may arise while installing or maintaining your wind turbine.
