96-Series (48V) Large frame Alternators
Mid-Duty, Large Frame Alternators
- 60A (2.9kW) and 100A (4.8kW) at 48 Volts!
- Industry Best Turn-on Thresholds
- Low Power Take-Off at Idle Speeed
- Designed for External Regulation
- Works with the New Balmar MC-620 Regulator
- Ideal for 48V Lithium Battery Banks
Balmar’s 96-Series 48V Alternators are designed to be used with the MC-620 Multi-Stage Regulator. When paired with the MC-620 Regulator, you can combine the advantages of Balmar’s multi-stage regulation capability in a 48V charging system. Offered in two power packages of 60A and 100A, these high power alternators provide 2.9 kW and 4.8 kW of charging power, respectively. The benefits of a 48V system include much more efficient components such as chargers and inverters, manageable cable sizes, and of course higher output alternators in reasonable package sizes. Lithium batteries can be charged at very high rates, so a 48V system can accomplish this in a cost effective way. With much lower cut-in speeds than the competition (1,325 RPM for 60A, 2,200 RPM for 100A) the 96-Series makes more power at lower RPM, thereby limiting the need for complex pulley schemes or over-throttling the engine at idle.
For lithium battery applications, the MC-620 regulator will disable charging for battery temperatures at or below 0oC (32oF). The MC-TS-A and MC-TS-B temperature sensors are both required for lithium battery charging. *Caution: The MC-620 Regulator requires a 12V input, consuming up to 20A at 12V to power the device. It cannot be powered from a 48V source. Click Here to view the MC-620 Operation manual
