The Value of Transistor Regulators on Farm Equipment 640190

For many years, charging systems on self-propelled vehicles used vibrating contact units to limit maximum voltage so as to lengthen life of lamps and prevent battery overcharge. Now the transistor regulator offers means of improving the reliability and durability of the voltage control unit. Since it has no moving parts that can wear out, its design life meets the requirements of today's farm vehicles and provides extreme ruggedness. The use of a potentiometer allows a precise voltage adjustment and more nearly assures optimum charging system performance, thereby minimizing overcharged and undercharged batteries. These advantages make the transistor regulator an ideal component for today's farming equipment.
