The Sterling alternator regulator ensures a fast and 100% recharge of the battery fleet. The result is identical to that of alternator chargers or battery chargers. The installation is more complex as there is a need to work on the alternator (access to the coals).
|Function||Fast charging (2 to 5 times faster) and complete service batteries from the alternator.|
|Connection||Connects to the alternator brushes as well as the internal regulator|
|Compatible alternators||Any type of 12 V or 24 V alternator (possibility to set the type of positive or negative regulation).
Can operate alone or in parallel with the existing controller.
|Compatibility||Compatible with all types of batteries (configurable battery technology).|
|Charging cycle applied||IUoU three-phase charging cycle with temperature compensation (temperature probe provided)|
|Maximum alternator power||400 A with internal regulator and 200 A in autonomous mode.|
|Control and configuration||Information available by LED: voltage control, configurable battery type, alarms.|
|Temperature sensor||A probe for the service park to adjust the charging voltages. A temperature sensor for alternator supervision (the system goes into standby if the alternator temperature exceeds 90 degrees).|
|Other Other||IP67 waterproof design|
|Remote control panel||Optional only for models: ARPDAR and ARPDARW|
|Dimensions||160 mm x 96 mm x 96 mm x 55 mm|
The alternator regulator range includes three models that you will find under this link.
The external regulator takes into account the voltage of the service fleet and controls the alternator electromagnet (rotor) to reduce or increase the alternator output power in order to obtain the appropriate recharge for the service fleet.
Sterling Power external controllers can either operate independently (without the original alternator controller) or in parallel with the existing controller to increase the level of redundancy.
Mounting the alternator regulator requires access to the brush to give access to the control of the electromagnet. A distributor is also required if several battery packs need to be charged.
The charging performance obtained from the alternator becomes equivalent to that of the most sophisticated shore chargers (three-phase charging cycle (boost, absorption, floating) by software control with temperature compensation of the battery fleet). This product is also called a booster because it allows you to recharge a battery set 3 to 5 times faster than with a conventional system. It will also be able to compensate for the voltage generated by a diode charge distributor if the reference voltage is taken directly from the service fleet.
The results obtained with the alternator charger are equivalent to those obtained with the easier to install alternator charger.
