AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE
REGULATOR R250
The circuitry of the R250 Automatic Voltage
Regulator (AVR) provides closed loop control of
the generator output voltage by regulating the
exciter field current. The R250 is powered by the
shunt field excitation system and is fitted as
standard on:

- 1000 Series generators


- 2000 Series generators
- 3000 Series generatorsation

SPECIFICATION:
l Steady state voltage regulation 0.5%
75 mm l Voltage supply and sensing 85 to 139 volts
(50/60 Hz)
110 0V E+ E- R 250 l Rapid response time (500ms) for a transient
4 x holes 5.8 x voltage variation amplitude of 20%
140 mm

50 x 115 mm
l Capable of remote voltage adjustment 5%

LOAD ADJUSTMENT MODULE (LAM):
