    Balmar 6-Series Alternators General Features:

    • Balmar 6-Series Alternators are Designed for Recreational Marine Applications
    • Light-duty 6-Series Alternators are engineered to replace most OEM alternators on a wide variety of marine gasoline and diesel engines
    • Versions: 70 Amp, 100 Amp, 120 Amp and 150 Amp
    • Balmar 6-Series alternators are available in (3) Mounting Configurations, which support (4) Mounting Styles
      • Saddle Mount: 3.15" (Typical of Yanmar engines)
      • Single Foot Mount: Convertible to support 1" Motorola and 2" Delco style mounting configurations
      • J-180 Mount: 4"
    • Patented Smart Ready® Technology
      • SmartReady™ Internal Regulation is a feature unique to the 6-Series alternator
      • SmartReady internal regulation enables the alternator to be used with smart Balmar external regulation, or as a stand-alone, internally regulated alternator system
      • The SmartReady regulator is a fixed, 14.1-volt charge controller that is ideal as a built-in back-up regulator for the cruiser, or as a full-time regulator for systems where smart, multi-stage regulation is not required
    • Dual Fan Cooling
    • High Airflow Frame
    • Maximum RPM: 12,000
    • USCG Title 33, ISO, SAE and CE Compliant
    • Ideal for Modest Charging Upgrades
    • Balmar 6-Series Alternators deliver high-output performance in a compact, small-case package and is available in all four common mounting configurations
    • While all Balmar's high-output alternators are designed
    • Recommended for use with Balmar multi-stage voltage regulators (Sold with Alternators in Kits or Separately)
    • The Balmar 6-Series Alternator utilizes Balmar's Smart Ready® Technology
      • If battery loads are relatively small and your engine is running frequently, the alternator's internal regulator may be sufficient to support your electrical needs without external regulation
      • If your vessel utilizes larger deep-cycle battery banks or the engine's duty cycle is less frequent (as is the case in most sailing applications), the 6-Series Alternator combines and works seamlessly with Balmar's ARS-5 Voltage Regulator or Max Charge Voltage Regulator
    • Purchased either individually or as a charging kit, 6-Series Alternators can solve a multitude of charging problems at a reasonable price
      • All Charging kits come with alternator, regulator and two temperature sensors
    • One year limited warranty
