A/B Circuit Generator Polarization Circuit Diagram
A/B Circuit Generator Polarization Circuit Diagram - An A circuit generator is a type of circuit which has contact points located after the field coils.
Then, a B circuit generator is just the same as A circuit but the contact points are located before the field coils.
It will cause the regulator points to pit and burned when using wrong regulator polarity or not to polarize a generator which in turn may run the battery down and damage to the generator itself.
This is how to polarize an A circuit or B circuit generator, a schematic illustrates the generator polarization:
For A circuit generator: use jumper wire to polarize an A circuit charging system. Connect one end to the field terminal of the regulator then strike the BATT terminal with the other end. Do this until you see a few sparks at the terminal.
For B circuit generator: differ from A circuit polarization, in this B circuit you may not use your jumper wire to polarize since it will burn the points inside of the regulator. Just disconnect the field wire from the regulator and strike it on the BATT wire of the regulator, wait and see the sparks and it is done.
