Balmar – Leaders in High Output Alternators

High Power Alternators require advanced regulators. The regulator not only ensures that the appropriate charge regime is used for expensive battery banks but also manages the alternator itself.

Please note that we recommend Balmar Alternators are used with Balmar Regulators. Whilst Balmar Regulators can be used with other brands of alternators (including N-Type European alternators – albeit with some alternator modifications), Merlin Equipment does not recommend mixing brands and does not provide technical and warranty support for non Balmar/Balmar applications (save for workmanship).

Four regulators are available:

ERS

  • Basic single stage regulator
  • Ideal as a spare back-up
  • IP66 waterproof

BRS

  • Single stage regulator
  • Output voltage adjustment
  • Remote voltage sensing to overcome volt drops in charging system
  • Fully sealed for wet environments

ARS-5

  • Same as a MaxCharge Alternator regulator (see below)
  • 5 Selectable Programs
    9A maximum field current (6 Series Alternators only)
  • Single Engine, Single Alternator applications only

MaxCharge

  • The ultimate alternator charge regulator
  • Provides 4 stage smart charge to battery banks
  • Fully programmable including alternator current and voltage limits
  • Battery temperature sensor (optional) adjusts output according to battery temperature
  • Alternator temperature sensor (optional) limits alternator output if running hot to prevent overheating
  • Soft ramp feature prevents the alternator producing high output until the engine (and belts) are warmed properly
  • Suitable for Lead/Acid, Gel, AGM and Li-Ion Batteries
  • Active fault detection, management and error code memory
  • 15A field current output for large alternators and AT Series
  • Fully waterproof design
  • Alpha Numeric LED Display for easy programming and status reports
