BC462-3H Alternator, 35-60 Amps (Homebuilt)
The BC462-3H is the same base alternator as the BC462-H but configured for use with the FK710-1.25 Spacer Kit. This configuration will allow the BC462-3H to be installed with a BC700 Oil Filter Adapter used with a 1.4" or longer spacer (this is common on Van's RV aircraft).
The BC462-3H continues our tradition of innovation, offering robust performance and superb efficiency. Rated at a nominal 35 to 60 amps @ cruise RPM, it mounts on a standard AND20000-spec accessory pad, and is built to the same quality standards you've come to expect from B&C.
Every BC462-3H features a CNC machined billet aluminum mounting flange for superior durability. Inside you'll find heavy-duty sealed ball bearings, two internal cooling fans, a precision dynamically-balance rotor (a B&C quality essential), and a special "shear section" drive coupling. Suitable for 14 volt or 28 volt applications, the BC462-3H is designed for aircraft-style external control, and may be used as either a Primary or a Standby Alternator, depending on your electrical system configuration. It should be appropriately matched with our LR3C, LS-1A, or SB1B Controllers.
Measuring 4.92" wide and 6.05" deep, and weighing only 6.75 lbs., the BC462-3H will clear the tachometer cable and oil screen on stock Lycoming engines with dual-magneto accessory case. Includes mounting gasket and pre-wired field connector assembly.
APPLICATION NOTE: The BC462-3H may interfere with the Lycoming horizontal oil filter adapter used on some Lycoming engines. The BC462-3H must be installed with the FK710-1.25 spacer kit (sold separately). This configuration is designed to avoid the interference with a BC700 Oil Filter Adapter installed with a 1.4" or longer spacer. Please call us with any questions.
Use of non-B&C regulators/controllers may damage the alternator.
