Cruising 600

Cruising 600 Hydrogenerator

  • Up to 600W of electrical production, ideal for sailing boats over 35 feet.

    For cruises, races and transatlantics, in total energy self-sufficiency. The output power increases in an exponential way over 6 knots.

    Delivered in standard with the 240mm diameter propeller (10 Amps at 5.6 kots), the CRUISING 600 accepts a range of 3 propellers for speed range from 3 to 13 knots.

    Mobile application : converter equipped with a Bluetooth chip allowing the reading of charge data, various technical informations, as well as the adjustment of voltages if necessary (Lithium battery)

    Available in 2 versions :

    • Short (Ref. PK-610-600)
    • Long (Ref. PK-970-600)

    Output 120W from 5 knots

    Choosing the propeller

    The propeller supplied in standard with the CRUISING 600 hydrogenerator pack is the 240 mm model which allows to produce 8 Amps at 5 knots. It is the more “universal” model guaranteeing the energy self-sufficiency on most boats with a negligible drag.

    To produce at slowest speed, the 280 mm diameter is available.

    To produce at higher speed to minimize the drag effect, the 200 mm diameter is available as well as the 200 mm with manual variable pitch to be used on applications like MINI 6.50.

    Can I use Lithium-Ion batteries with the Watt&Sea converter ?
    Is it possible to load several banks ?
    Can I stop the energy production without lifting the hydrogenerator up ?
    Can I use the Watt&Sea hydrogenerator simultaneously with the engine ? (engine alternator load at the same time with the hydrogenerator’s one)
    Can I let the hydrogenerator in the water when the batteries are fully loaded ?
    Does the hydrogenerator convert alternating current to direct current, to load the batteries ?
    Why should the converter be mounted vertically ?
