|We design and manufacture smart DC charge control systems for the marine, RV and commercial transportation industries. Our WS500 Advanced Alternator Regulator is the first of its kind to determine battery charge state by factoring battery voltage, amps-in and amps-out, and alternator and battery temperature – and it's the first regulator on the market to communicate with engine and battery BMS systems via CAN communication.|

Firmware V2.2.2 Release
June 9, 2020
The ability to redefine the battery temperature sensor for use with a second alternator is also included in this version. (This can be used in applications where battery temperature is available via CAN, and where dual alternators are being driven by a single WS500 on a single engine. (ref: $SCA command) This new firmware is packaged in a ZIP file, and is available for download on the Technical Page on this website.

This marks the third case of successful integration between the Wakespeed WS500 and factory BMS systems — the other proofed integrations are with Lithionics Batteries' Never-Die BMS and MG Energy's MG Master BMS.
Wakespeed Offshore regulators deliver unsurpassed quality and performance for a wide range of applications — our simple WS100 multi-stage voltage regulator offers excellent support for most lead acid battery types in 12-volt systems. The advanced WS500 alternator regulator, with its unique ability to regulate based on voltage, current, and alternator temperature, is by far the most capable charging source for both traditional lead acid and new generation LiFePo4 lithium ion batteries.
All Wakespeed regulators are made in the USA.
