    What is the threaded shaft diameter and thread count on the Rover PMA? What is its amp output versus rpm?

    The threaded shaft is metric thread: 16 mm. If you are not familiar with metric thread, 16 mm is very close to 5/8 inch.

    We have not generated the data yet for amp output vs. rpm yet. We only have power output (Watts) vs. wind speed and the videos showing this are in the product description for the Rover.

    We will eventually have Rover videos posted for (1) open circuit voltage vs. rpm (2) shorted current vs. rpm (3) Watts into a 12 volt battery bank vs. rpm and (4) Watts into a 24 volt battery bank vs. rpm

    We have made these videos for the Windtura 750 and you can view them here:

    but we have not made them for the Rover yet.

    I can tell you that the Rover will make about 300 Watts in a 24 volt battery bank at about 800 rpm.

    Would the Rover generator work as a vertical helix wind turbine?

    It should work fine but vertical axis wind turbines do not perform very well.
