Excitation field disconnection / AFD (Alternator Field Disconnect)
The exciter field shutdown protects the alternator from destructive voltage peaks that occur when large loads are accidentally switched off while the engine is running. These dangerous voltage peaks are effectively prevented by switching off the exciter field of the alternator shortly before the high load ceases.
Easy connection / installation instructions
