Denso Alternator 24V 60A connection

I am trying to find a plug to fit the male plug on the alternator.

I think I understand the terminals and what they are for
  • Ignition (Ig)
  • Sensor (S)
  • light( L)
But what do the terminals labelled "E", "F" and""N" equate to and what do they mean? The RP57 plug would fit the plug on the alternator perfectly.

(Both attachments relate to Denso Alternators)

If I did make a mistake wiring the alternator up incorrectly will I destroy the alternator? Can I use my multi meter to work out what each terminal is for?

Re: Denso Alternator 24V 60A connection

I'm still working on the alternator wiring. But I'm following advice given on this forum and intend putting in a 100A ANL fuse within 7 inches of the battery. (I should have the fuse holder any day now and I have two spares which arrived yesterday)

Now I'm considering an ammeter to check the output of the alternator. But I figure that will depend on the state of charge of the batteries as well as any load on the batteries e.g. winch. Is the ammeter really necessary or of any use?

If I want to put the 100A ammeter on the switch panel with all the other instruments I have concluded I need to "wire in" a 100A shunt between the alternator and the ANL fuse and then take two light wires up to the ammeter on the switch board. (My alternator is 24V 60A)

I would appreciate comments on what I am planning.

NOTE I have worked out the three wires on the alternator.

Some people may find this helpful.
