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.
