Ford Focus>> Electric equipment>> Storage battery>> Check of a regulator of tension
Check of a regulator of tension carry out in the following order:
- attach a multimeter between the plug «+» (a red cable) the generator and "weight";
- start up the engine and within two minutes support frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft in limits from 3000 to 4000 mines-1 (for a diesel engine approximately from 1800 to 2500 mines-1) that the generator got warm to temperature 80 ° With;
- include lamps of dimensional light, radio or the fan. At this loading in a network the current in a chain corresponds from 3 to 7 And, thus tension of a regulator should be between 13,5 and 14,8 In;
- if you received higher value of tension, it means that the regulator defective and should be replaced. At too small value of tension by experience it is possible to assume that there is a wear of coal contacts. In this case carry out generator repair in the service center.
