Alternator Regulators

Maximize your charging time with the most advanced technology

Why do you need an alternator regulator?

An alternator regulator adjusts the output of the alternator to the proper voltage required by the batteries based on battery chemistry & environmental factors. All lithium & some AGM applications require special programming of the alternator regulator.

Why is the AP500 & OPE-Tether system so unique?

Today’s high power alternators provide the option of supplementing and in many cases replacing generator charging.  The AP500 has exclusive programming capabilities easily accessible with the OPE-Tether which allow the battery charging to be maximized based on engine RPM & real time loading data.

Temperature sensing

The regulator will adjust charging based on alternator temperature as well as battery temperature for non-lithium installations.  It is important to have properly mounted temperature sensors to enable the charging to be scaled back in the case of high alternator temperature and to adjust the V for lead battery temperature variations.
