XT-Series & AT-Series AlternatorsDesigned for Recreational Applications • 170A or 220A in a Small Case Package• Up to 140A at Idle Speeds• Patented Smart Ready®Technology (XT-Series Only)• Dual Fan Cooling, High Airflow Frame• Ideal for Large Battery Banks• USCG Title 33, CE, ISO 8846 and SAE J1171 CertifiedAT-Series and the New XT-Series Alternators from Balmar bring together the latest innovations in alternator design to deliver incredible charging power in a compact, Marine-friendly package.

TheNew XT-Series 170A Alternator family features a state-of-the-art, braided wire stator design to generate exceptional output in the smallest possible area. The XT-Series produces slightly more power than our previous AT-Series 165A design and operates 5°-10°C cooler. In addition, we’ve added Balmar’s Smart Ready® internal regulator technology to provide an additional level of fault tolerance for cruising boaters. Available XT-Series mounting styles have been expanded to include the “Vortec” 9Si design found on many GM gasoline engines. The AT-Series 220A Alternator familyfeatures a hairpin-wound stator design which uses densely wound square copper wire to generate up to 220A at 3,000 engine rpm. Hairpin-wound stators feature 96 slots – compared to 36 slots in a traditional S-wound stator – allowing the hairpin-wound stator to develop superior electromagnetic energy and efficiency to other traditional stator designs. XT-Series and AT-Series Alternators may require a Tachometer Signal Stabilizer (Part No. 15-TSS) if your current tachometer is not adjustable. XT-Series and AT-Series Alternators should only be used in Dual Vee or Multi-Groove Serpentine belt configurations. Balmar’s growing range of Altmount©Serpentine Pulley Conversion Kitsshown on page 11 support all XT- and AT-Series Alternators.

    The WS500 is a next generation Smart Regulator for Marine, Off-grid and RV applications. It is ideally suited to the latest in battery technology and includes CANBus and NMEA2k communications to integrate into an overall Energy Management Network.  Select your Wiring harness based on whether you need positive or negative type alternator excitation.  You WILL need either a Positive or Negative Wiring Harness.  Make sure you include it when you buy.  You may also wish to include a battery temperature sensor wiring harness.  This is optional but is strongly recommended, especially in “Battery Centric” configurations where the WS500 can reduce its output when your battery starts to warm up.
