Generator Auxiliary Excitation Booster. A Cost-effective excitation solution better than PMG

IVT-1260 / IVT-2460

Generator Auxiliary Excitation Booster

Converting DC battery power to an AC source for use by the AVR. It boosts the motor capacity of shunt generators like a PMG. It is easy to install and can be integrated to the generator excitation systems quickly. Available in 12V (IVT-1260) or 24V (IVT-2460).

(Patent Pending)
