BALMAR 60 Amp/48 Volt 96-Series Alternator
Alternator, 96 Series, 60a, 48v, SaddleMT, 4in, DualPul, CaseGrd. 48V systems fill the need for ever-increasing power requirements from DC battery systems. DC air conditioning and cooking, for example can stretch 12V systems beyond practical application. Offered in 60A, these high power alternators provide 2.9 kW of charging power.
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) the 96-Series makes more power at lower RPM, thereby limiting the need for complex pulley schemes or over-throttling the engine at idle. When paired with the New MC-620 Regulator, now you can combine the advantages of Balmar’s legendary multi-stage regulation capability in a 48V charging system.
