We have 16V alternators for use with high voltage systems commonly used in racing applications. These alternators are a 1-wire hookup and the voltage can be user adjusted up to18.6 volts on the CS130 style series. We preset the voltage on the 10SI style alternators at a maximum set point of 18.6V which will keep your 16V battery correctly charged. You have your choice of two different alternator designs. The 10SI style series will produce up to 100 amp and the CS130 style series will produce up to 135 amp.
Disclaimer: 16 Volt Precautions
To eliminate the chance of electrical component failure when using 16 volts, the following procedures should be followed:
1. A 16-volt battery requires in excess of 18 volts to charge and, if subjected to this higher voltage, certain electrical components could be damaged.
2. Wiring throughout the car should not be lighter than 16 gauge. Any wiring in the car lighter than 16 gauge should be replaced when running 16 volts.
3. Check with electrical component manufacturers as to 16-Volt compatibility.
This alternator comes supplied with a 2 1/4" diameter 1V pulley for use with 3/8" wide belts. We have many other options available. Please let us know the width of your belt (at its widest point) in the comments section during checkout so that we can provide this for you. If you have questions give us a call at (909) 794-1600.
