Balmar ARS-5 12 Volt Regulator

12-Volt ARS-5H Multi-Stage Voltage Regulator

H-model includes a 54" wiring harness.

The multi-stage ARS-5 voltage regulator provides an excellent option for single alternator charging control, in a package that's priced for optimal value. The regulator initiates the charging process with a user-adjustable start delay that allows the engine and belts to warm up before the alterrnator applies horsepower load to the system. The regulator then gently ramps up to bulk charging voltage where lion share of charging takes place.

Use the ARS-5 right out of the box, or tailor this advanced 12-volt regulator system to guide your Universal Factory, Deep Cycle Acid, Optima, Gel or AGM batteries through bulk charge, absorption and float modes. 

Easy-to-read LED display indicates program mode, battery type and self-diagnostic codes. Connections for warning light/alarm and electrical tachometer are standard. 

In addition to five user selectable preset programs, the ARS-5 features several advanced programming modes which make it possible to tailor charging to a wide variety of environments. When used in conjunction with optional MC-TS-A and MC-TS-B alternator and battery temperature sensors, the ARS-5 has the ability to monitor and respond to a range of ambient temperature conditions, including reduction or discontinuation of charging voltages, should a catastrophic over-temperature condition occur at the alternator or the batteries. The optional temperature sensors are also available and sold separately.
