The R449 AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) is a shunt type designed to fit as standard on LSA50 to LSA54 alternators. It can powered by a power VT, the AREP field excitation system, or a single-phase or 3-phase PMG. Using the R726 external module the R449 AVR can control the power factor and can match the alternator voltage to the mains voltage prior to synchronisation.
We also have genuine OEM Leroy Somer branded R449 AVRs available for Marine certification applications.
