The Balmar 6-Series alternators combine the best of traditional Balmar quality
with technology that is both more universal and more user-friendly than ever. The 6-series
is the first high-output alternator that gives you the choice of either using
its internal regulator or connecting to an external smart regulator. Patented
Smart Ready internal regulation offers the 6-Series alternator the unique
ability to be used as a stand-alone high-output OEM replacement for performance
ski and wakeboard tow boats, day cruisers, or workboats, which have more
electrical loads than ever! For sailors or power boaters demanding the very best
in multi-stage external regulation, the Smart Ready system provides a
dependable back-up for external voltage regulators. Isolated Ground terminals
are now standard, improving the system ground and noise reduction. 6-Series
alternators utilize dual internal fans and an open frame case design for
improved alternator cooling. A universal crown assures an easy fit on most
modern engines. Model 60 alternators fit most Yanmars and other engines using a
3.15"ID saddle mount. Dual internal fans provide added cooling.
Corrosion-resistant powder-coated cast aluminum case with five-way universal
tensioning crown. Ignition-safe for marine gas or diesel engines.
