TOPIC: Low Voltage

Low Voltage 2 months 2 days ago #1802

I realized I never closed out this post. I was encouraged by my A&P and Avionics guy to go like for like with the Lamar and replace the wiring harness. I assumed incorrectly the wiring harness meant the actual harness but it was the edge connector and we built a new clean harness. All is working great.

Hi John,

I have recommended Zeftronics products for decades and used a Zeftronics regulator to control the generator before I installed a Plane Power alternator conversion kit. I am very happy with the Plane Power set up. I haven't had it too long (2 years) but as I said it's been faultless.

John,
I have zero experience with Zeftronics customer service. I installed my current Zeftronics on 2004 and it never has failed.

Jose - thank you. I assume I want the R15V00 Rev A model with over voltage? I see in notes it requires a 337. I saw on Spruce some negative reports on lack of customer support for Zeftronics . Any experiences? Debating R15V00 Rev A, PP R1224 or like for like Lamar.

Welcome , John!

Zeftronics are very good (it’s what my 28V 182Q has), but lately Plane Power ACUs have a rising reputation. Here is a link to Zeftronics 14V application table:

New to the forum but joined to tap into the collective wisdom of the community to keep my 1977 182Q in the air.

Flying back from Oshkosh I started getting a low voltage warning on my 830. We got it home and pulled the cowl and discovered a previous crimp had broken off. Replaced with extended wire and no luck. Turns out our new wire crimped into the shielding so we redid the wire and still no luck. Checking master and all parts of from inside to alternator in the morning. Thinking I might have somehow fried the regulator (picture attached). If we have to go down that path can I ask for suggestions on Zeftronics vs Plane Power and which models would I need? Anything else required with purchase? It seems like another useful brick in the modernization wall so I’m not complaining just looking for recommendations on which to purchase. I assume the next logical purchase is a plane power alternator.

Appreciate the ideas.

John
