We use two Mastervolt Alpha Pro MB II regulators. They come with external temp sensors and they also send info like field current over the Masterbus network.

When you can monitor field current you can see right away if everything is working normal.

Re: Balmar alternators or standard?

MaineSail I have read your LifePo for boats article before purchasing our lithionics 900ah and AT200ís. Would you recommend externally rectifying these Balmarís? Is that possible with a Mark Grasser or a quicktifier? I currently have the belt manager set at 5 and we still trip the 90c threshold with the temp sensor. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated...
