Some notable achievements include the creation of the world’s first self-regulating alternator, the first rotating field alternator, and the first permanent magnet generator for automatic voltage regulator excitation.

For Stamford® and the entire power generation industry, the next mountain to climb will be reducing stress on the planet by helping to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other harmful gases.

The S-Series leads the way and has quickly become the alternator of choice in marine, oil and gas ancillary equipment, telecommunications, cogeneration, construction and other continuous or backup power applications.

Launched in low-voltage form in 2019, the S7 has grown into a versatile product, offering water cooling, extended core lengths and the latest six-pole configurations.

Meanwhile, the S9, which originally appeared in high-voltage form, was the first to feature CoreCooling™ high-efficiency airflow technology and Class H insulation. The medium voltage iteration was followed by a high altitude/high voltage model and now a low voltage version, rounding out the package.
