Rutland 1200 Windcharger

For land based or marine applications the Rutland 1200 elegantly combines a number of high tech features focused on quiet operation, low windspeed performance and high power delivery up to 500W.

  • Unique Tri-namic Profile Blades brings together low wind speed start up with high wind speed power performance and almost silent running across all wind speeds.
  • 3 Phase AC power delivered from the turbine to the controller minimises voltage drop on long cable runs The low friction generator responds rapidly to windspeed changes and its inertia drives the turbine on between gusts to capture more energy
  • Power optimising Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) boosts the turbine’s output
  • Marine grade stainless steel and aluminium are combined with modern, durable but lightweight materials to give a high quality build and finish.

Rutland 1200 Controller included

  • Hybrid control to combine Rutland 1200 wind turbine with up to 20A of solar panels
  • Dual charging capability to 2 separate battery banks
  • MPPT on both wind turbine and solar panel inputs (Marine only) to maximise both energy sources. Enables connection of high voltage solar panels.
  • Pulse Width Modulation charge control for multi-stage charging ensures fully charged and maintained batteries.
  • Automatic turbine speed reduction as batteries reach capacity, resumes as batteries deplete.
  • Manual shutdown switches for wind and solar inputs
  • LED charge and battery condition indicators as standard.
  • Remote digital display optional. Connect with RJ232.

The Rutland 1200 Marine is the latest in the Rutland family of marine turbines used by yachtsmen around the world since our first model in 1978. This high efficiency and technologically advanced turbine uses a high-tech MPPT controller specifically designed for charging 2 battery banks with the feature to accept input for solar panels. The almost silent operation is a key feature of this innovative marine turbine that’s specifically designed for the power needs of yachts 12m or more.

The Rutland 1200 Terrain is the newest addition to Marlec’s world renowned Rutland Windcharger range. This new land based turbine works alongside it’s technologically advanced MPPT controller specifically designed for land. Power that is generated is stored in the batteries, ready for when it is needed and these can also be separately charged in parallel with solar panels or generators.

Rutland 1200 Windcharger



Marlec construct their Rutland wind turbines using a range of modern and traditional high quality materials which are designed to endure in a marine environment. They have innovated in their field by introducing light weight but robust high density nylon and glass reinforced materials. These materials are UV stable and used alongside marine grade aluminium, stainless steel. The sealed for life bearings and other carefully selected and precision worked materials are manufactured in their UK factory.
