Ampair 600W Wind Turbine with SMA SB1100 Grid Connect Inverter

Ampair 600W 230V Wind Turbine with SMA Sunny Boy 1100 Grid Connect Inverter


The Ampair 600-230 is designed for connecting to 230V 50Hz grid systems operated by public utilities. It is ordinarily connected on the client's side of the electrical utility supply meter and is ideally connected into the consumer unit (fuse board). Electricity generated by the wind turbine is then used in preference to electricity supplied the public utility. If more electricity is required by the client then extra supply comes in from the utility, and if more is generated than is consumed on site then the surplus is exported to the utility.

Mounting options


The Ampair 600 system includes a range of mounting systems for land and marine use. The only marine mount that we recommend is the stern mount kit co-developed by Ampair and Scanstrut. On land the same stern mount can be used and we also offer a wide range of other mountings:


  • Steel unguyed masts of 8m and 10m in height with options for hinged or unhinged access; and for flange mounted or rooted foundations.
  • Wooden unguyed 10m and 13m telegraph poles and conversion kits.
  • Guyed steel masts from 12m.
  • Non penetrating flat roof mounts of 5m height.
  • Various mounts suitable for fixing on to suitable vertical structures.

SMA Sunny Boy 1100Watt Grid Connect Inverter


The Sunny Boy SB 1100 is one of the most sophisticated and high quality inverters on the market. Featuring German engineering the inverter will help to achieve the optimum match between the solar generators output power and the inverters input power.
The compact SB 1100 inverter has proven particularly successful with more than 30,000 units sold worldwide. Packed full of innovative technologies, this Sunny Boy also features the international SMA grid guard interface. This ensures maximum reliability when operating the solar power system and enables electricity to be fed into mains grids anywhere in the world.
The Sunny Boy SB 1100 is the perfect grid connect inverter for a 1KW solar installation. It is easy to install which will help to reduce your installation costs and it is one of the most efficient on the market. Join the solar revolution today with the Sunny Boy SB 1100. The Inverter features an LCD display which by simply tapping turns on to show you, your solar systems output.
Use the SB 1100 for small starter systems, educational, or demonstration projects. Field configurable for three output power ranges, this small inverter will allow a PV installation with as few as three solar modules. It's great to fill tight spaces, or as a solution for challenging roof topologies.
