GenMaax Super-High-Output Marine Alternators

Home > Products > Marine Alternators > GenMaax

GenMaax Marine AlternatorThe GenMaax super high-output alternator is all you need to survive. It covers all the energy needs on your boat and turns your alternator into a powerful energy generator.

The GenMaax marine alternator is a totally new concept developed at our plant. These small and powerful high-performance alternators have frames manufactured in our CNC plant using 6061 aluminum.

The frames get anodized with a special salt water resistant stainless steel coating that radically enhances heat dissipation which is critical with any alternator over 160amps. The frames are manufactured in-house from billet which allows us to make the GenMaax a perfect fit on the 3.25″ and 4″ J dual foot (saddle mount), 1″ and 2″ foot mount, and pad mount engines.

Two GenMaax alternators on one marine engine will generate 338AMPS or 4,722 watts in 12V, on a multi-hull or trawler. Four GenMaax marine alternators will generate 9,000 plus watts, eliminating the need for portable and or permanent back up generators. Hence the name GenMaax.

Electromaax manufactures 3 mounting types as follows:

  1. GenMaax Foot Mount
  2. GenMaax J180 Mount
  3. GenMaax Saddle Mount

The GenMaax saddle mount fits these Yanmar engines:

2GM • 2GM20 • 2GM20-YUE • 2GM20F • 2GM20F-YUE • 2GMF2YM15 • 3GM • 3GM30 • 3GM30F • 3GMF • 3HM • 3HM35 • 3HM35F • 3HMF • 3JH2 • 3JH2-TE • 3JH3 • 3JH3-E • 3JH4 • 3JH4-E • 3JH5 • 3JH5-E • 3YM20 • 3YM30 • 4JH • 4JH-E • 4JH-HTE • 4JH-TE • 4JH2 • 4JH2-DTE • 4JH2-E • 4JH2-HTE • 4JH2-TE • 4JH2-UTE • 4JH3-E • 4JH3-HTE • 4JH3-TE • 4JH4 • 4JH4-AE • 4JH4-E • 4JH4-HTE • 4JH4-TE • 4JH5 • 4JH5-E • 4LHA6LY • 2QM15 • 2QM20 • 3QM30 • 3QM30F

The GenMaax currently comes in 215 Amp and 250 Amp 12V plus 165 Amp in 24V.

Benefits of GenMaax Marine Alternators vs. Generator Sets

The GenMaax was specifically developed to meet the technical demands of the new generation A.G.M, Life PO4 Lithium, Carbon Foam and Gel Batteries. Read the many benefits of installing a GenMaax on your engine if you’re considering eliminating or avoiding installing a back-up gen-set – especially when you combine its high output with solar and wind.

  • Substantially reduces weight (in a Catamaran this is very crucial)
  • Creates more space
  • Better utilization of your existing propulsion engine(s)
  • Eliminates incoming cold water and outgoing exhaust from the generator set
  • Produces continuous power output
  • Simultaneously charges your batteries and powers your on-board appliances
  • Saves tens of thousands of dollars in replacement and maintenance costs associated with gen-sets
  • Transforms your engine into a power generator
  • At idle RPM the GenMaax applies the required load to charge your batteries
  • Covers additional loads required by other devices
  • Saves capital cost more than other energy generators (solar/wind/portable generators) require
  • No additional systems to maintain
  • Dual internal fans for enhanced cooling
  • Remote rectifier to further dissipate heat and enhance performance

Applies a load at idle that prevents the engine from choking up.

The GenMaax 215 super-high-output alternator produces a continuous 112amps at 24 volts which covers most cruisers’ daily energy needs in very short order. More significantly, it also covers very large loads simultaneously.

The simple, bolt-on replacement, 165amp, 24 volt GenMaax gives you all the output of a large-case alternator in a small case that fits 99% of Yanmar marine engines. It eliminates or substantially reduces a cruiser’s reliance on solar panels and/or portable generators.

Alternator Kits

You can purchase a full kit which contains one of our CSR or Pro external smart voltage regulators for more reliable performance:

E-Maax Pro External Smart Regulator

  • 12 V, 215 Amp. alternator
  • 12 V, 215 Amp. alternator – includes E-MAAX CSR smart regulator
  • 12 V, 215 Amp. alternator – includes E-MAAX Pro smart regulator
  • 12 V, 250 Amp. alternator
  • 12 V, 250 Amp. alternator – includes E-MAAX CSR regulator
  • 12 V, 250 Amp. alternator – includes E-MAAX Pro regulator
  • 24 V, 165 Amp. alternator – includes E-MAAX CSR smart regulator

What else is included in the alternator kits?

Each kit includes the following:

  • 1 x GenMaax 165, 215 or 215 Amp 12/25 Volt alternator
  • 1 x E-MAAX CSR or Pro Smart Regulator
  • 1 x Alternator Temperature Sensor
  • 1 x Battery Temperature Sensor

Since no internal regulator is fitted in the GenMaax 24V alternator, the MSRP includes an E-MAAX CSR smart regulator.

GenMaax Design and Technology

The GenMaax is designed for the serious or blue-water cruiser. It’s a small to medium case with enhanced cooling. It is available in 215 and 250amp output.

Watch the video below to see show the GenMaax Alternator being tested:

Today’s batteries like AGM, Gel or Lithium batteries require a specific voltage when charging, and since that is a feature no internal regulator can offer, we recommend you couple the GenMaax with the E-MAAX smart exterior regulator. The combination of these two technologically advanced products charges batteries much faster and increases the longevity of your battery bank.

The GenMaax alternator produces continuous power output which is sufficient to simultaneously charge batteries and power on board conveniences at a low RPM, and for a very long time without suffering any degrade – and doing so while sustaining temperatures of 55C. Faster charging at the appropriate voltage means you use less fuel and increase the life of your batteries.

All 12 volt GenMaax alternators are available with your choice of internal or external regulators and 24 volt GenMaax alternators are available with external regulators only.
