BC462-H Alternator, 35-60 Amps (Homebuilt)
Here's a game-changer - the new high-performance spline-driven alternator from the company that pioneered the spline-driven alternator over 20 years ago!
The BC462-H 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-H 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-H 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-H 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.
NOTE: The BC462-H may interfere with the Lycoming horizontal oil filter adapter used on some Lycoming engines (however, it will fit up nicely next to the BC700 spin-on oil filter adapter). If you are using the BC700 Oil Filter Adapter with a 1.4" or longer spacer, you will need to purchase the BC462-3H which is configured to fit that configuration. Please call for additional fit information.
Use of non-B&C regulators/controllers may damage the alternator.
