REGULATORS FOR DYNAMOS & HUB GENERATORS

6V VOLTAGE REGULATOR KITS FOR BICYCLE DYNAMOS AND CYCLE HUB GENERATORS, WHICH PROTECT ALL TYPES
OF BULBS AND LED STANDLIGHT UNITS FROM PREMATURE FAILURE AND CAN BE NEEDED FOR NICELITE LED BULB CONVERSION

THIS IS A PRODUCT DATABASE - PLEASE CLICK ON A YELLOW LINK FOR PURCHASING DETAILS


INITIAL NICELITE TEST RIDE: When Nicelite LED dynamo bulbs are first fitted, the bike should be taken on a safe test ride at cruising speed for about 10 minutes to check whether the LED bulb or bulbs remain at full brightness.

If temporary dimming occurs (usually within 2 minutes) it indicates that LED protection detected over-voltage, and an external voltage regulator must be added. Nicelite bulbs will return to normal operation without damage when the voltage reduces to 6V or less, and once regulation is in place they will work continuously.

ONE REGULATOR CONTROLS THE WHOLE CIRCUIT. A factory-fitted or external regulator controls the voltage of the whole circuit (head and tail lights), so only one regulator is required for each dynamo-generator system. Regulators are connected across the circuit at any point, as shown in the schematic Regulator Circuit Diagram (above).

* DARK BLUE AREAS indicate where an external regulator is definitely required for Nicelite LED bulbs (push-in and screw cap fittings), and recommended to improve reliability with all filament bulbs and LED standlight units.

LIGHT BLUE AREAS are for HALOGE HEADLIGHT systems, or when an LED FRONT OR REAR standlight is fitted. These systems normally have at least one internal regulator. They require an external regulator ONLY WHEN INDICATED ON NICELITE TEST RIDE due to failure of the original internal regulator.

Systems that were originally supplied with a krypton or vacuum bulb usually do not have an internal regulator. Krypton and Vacuum bulbs can be identified by rounded glass. Halogen bulbs have a distinct small point on the end of the glass.



XGEN and XGEN5 - FOR TYRE DRIVEN DYNAMOS AND HUB GENERATORS

XGEN is for TYRE-DRIVEN DYNAMOS, and XGEN5 is for 3W HUB GENERATORS                                                                                   

XGEN and XGEN5 have the same installation procedure, the
only difference is XGEN5 is a larger, heavy duty 10W unit with a much
higher capacity than most factory-fitted regulators. Both regulators can be
positioned neatly under the headlight bracket.

(1) The Regulator ring terminal is bolted to the earth/ground side of the circuit.
(2) Solderless Bullet Connectors are used in the simple installation.

Shown in Figs 1 and 2

TWIN WIRE SYSTEMS: There is an alternative installation for twin wired systems. In the case of hub generators switched at the headlight, it is preferable to fit the XGEN5 to the wire or wires leading to the tail light (if fitted). Please open the Fitting Instructions for further information.

KIT CONTENTS:

1. XGEN or XGEN5 Regulator with 2 wires, one with a fitted ring terminal.
2. Two cable ties.
3. Four Lucas brass bullets and 2 bullet connectors.
4. Instructions


XGEN2 - FOR STURMEY ARCHER 1.8W DYNOHUBS

XGEN2 fits directly across the terminals of a Dynohub, as shown in Fig 3.

KIT CONTENTS:

1. XGEN2 Regulator with fitted terminals on both wires.
2. Instructions.

NOTE: Dynohubs may alternatively be regulated with an XGEN, as above, using the twin wire connection mode.
