TIP

Alternators and Charge Regulators:

For rapidly recharged batteries

There are two options to solve this issue:

Equip the standard alternator with a Mastervolt

Alpha Pro charge regulator. This charge regulator

maximises the output of alternators by regulating the

alternator in a way that ensures the batteries receive

the optimum charge. The proven 3-step+ charge

method guarantees fast and safe charging of your

batteries.

You can also choose a powerful second Mastervolt

Alpha alternator with Alpha Pro charge regulator.

This combination was specifically designed for

charging service batteries, and allows you to charge

quickly and turn off your engine when you want.

Alpha Pro

Charge Regulators

n

Suitable for 12 and 24 V.

n

Including plug & play connection cable, an adapter

cable for Bosch alternators is optional.

n

The Alpha Pro series is suitable for most alternators

with a charging current of up to 400 amps.

n

Automatic voltage and temperature compensation.

n

Keep alive’ function for tachometer.

n

MasterBus compatible.

The charge regulator measures the battery

temperature and adjusts the charging process

accordingly, resulting in a safe and fast charge.

Therefore the battery is always kept in good condition.

Alpha Alternator Series

n

Fast and complete charging of all batteries.

n

Power supply for all consumers.

n

12 V and 24 V versions.

n

75 A to 150 A charge current.

n

As standard, delivered with Alpha Pro charge regulator

for an optimal performance and longer-lasting batteries.

Using a Battery Mate, Charge Mate or BI battery isolator

in conjunction with an Alpha Alternator, makes it possible

to easily charge two or three separate battery banks

simultaneously.

“It is important for us to work with

companies that understand our needs

and offer high quality products and

knowledgeable technical support.

Mastervolt has collaborated with us

throughout the design process, offering

products that work well in our applications,

and they stand by their products.”

GENERATE

A second alternator on the main engine, combined

with a larger battery bank and inverter, could be

an alternative for a generator.

The existing alternator on the main engine is designed to charge the starter battery. As a result the

combination is not ideal for fast and full charging of other batteries, especially if you want to charge

the batteries over a short time or when powering a heavy load.
