Version Comparison:

There are six versions of PowerSpout available to suit different situations. The first step in determining which PowerSpout product is right for your situation is determining your flow rate and head drop for your flow, then using the graph and tables below to find which range you are in. Once you have determined the range of which your flow resides, you can start selecting your model! Please Contact us if you have any questions!


Metric Range:

English Range:
  • PowerSpout PLT. This model is great for flows with a large head drop and a low flow rate. It is designed to directly charge 12v 24v or 48v batteries or connect directly to a grid-tied inverter.  A good choice for off-grid installations where the turbine is within 100ft (30meters) of the battery bank or a grid-tied installation where the turbine is less than 2000ft away from inverter location. If off-grid, turbine will Require a load dump charge controller to protect the battery bank. This turbine can reach power output of up to 1500 watts.

  • PowerSpout PLT with Crowbar. This turbine not only comes with all the features of the PowerSpout PLT, but also includes a fitted overvolts crowbar that will drop voltage to zero if the voltage limit is exceeded to protect the turbine. This enables you to use an Outback FM60/80 charge controller with a lower input voltage range, helping maximize power output.

  • PowerSpout Turgo. The Turgo is a versatile turbine and can be used for mid range flow rates and head drops. It is a good choice for off grid applications where the the distance is between the inverter and the load is 6-30 meters (20-100 feet). Requires two transformers; one for each phase at the receiving location. This turbine can reach a power output of up to 1500 watts.

  • PowerSpout Turgo with Crowbar. This turbine not only comes with all the features of the PowerSpout TRG, but also includes a fitted overvolts crowbar that will drop voltage to zero if the voltage limit is exceeded to protect the turbine. This enables you to use an Outback FM60/80 charge controller with a lower input voltage range, helping maximize power output.

  • PowerSpout LH = Low Head. This means it is designed for a stream with low water height but a high flow rate. It can produce a power output of 1500 watts.
