BC Series Hydraulic Driven Generator - 60 Hz AC


"BC" Series Hydraulic AC Generators will provide up to 4000 watts of electricity for emergency lighting, electric pumps, gas line fusion equipment and electric hand tools.

Electrol/Tendaire Generators can provide you with 115 and/or 230 VAC of electrical power wherever needed. Easily installed, these generators can be conveniently mounted on most utility service and construction vehicles.

There are many advantages to the "BC" Series Hydraulic Driven Generators. They are economical, compact and powerful. They are also quieter with a shock dampening mounting system and have been tested to meet CE requirements.

All of the above systems are supplied with Generator, Hydraulic Motor and Flow Divider for an open center system. Pressure relief can also be added to greatly simplify plumbing.

Hydraulic Requirements

MODEL Gal/min. Pressure
1BCHF-20/ 5 GPM 2000 PSI
1BCHF-30/ 7 GPM 2000 PSI
1BCHF-40/ 9 GPM 2000 PSI
2BCHF-40/ 9 GPM 2000 PSI
**NOTE** 20 GPM (Max) to Flow Control
Any excess GPM supplied to the flow divider beyond that required generates heat!
Lower or higher pressures at full load may be achieved by substituting motors.

*Most Popular Options

For use with Open Center Hydraulic Systems
Option No.
001- Discontinued- No Longer Available
002- 12 VDC excitation with AC & DC leads out. Optional VF-110 control box, (receptacles and on/off switch on face of control box).
003- Self-excited with AC leads out. Optional VM-110 monitor box (receptacles on face of monitor box).
004- 12 VDC excitation with AC & DC leads out. Optional VF-110 control box, (receptacles and on/off switch on face of control box). This system includes a built-in electric solenoid oil bypass valve. It should be used when a dedicated pump or a dedicated sectional pump provides oil to the generator system only.
