  • DESCRIPTION
  • REVIEWS
NOS Chinese Army type 65 generator designed for use with the 102E and other small radio sets. The generator is actually a three phase alternator employing a spinning permanent magnet rotor for field generation. There are no brushes since the field is generated by a permanent magnet. The rotor is gear driven from the cranks by a set of gears to step up the rpm. There are seven ball bearings on three shafts. DC voltages are obtained by diode rectifiers to obtain high voltage (430V, 130 mA) and low voltage (6.3V, 2 A). A measure of HV regulation is provided by saturable core reactors in the AC side of the 3-phase alterNATOr output and by a flywheel. Used in Grade I Condition, packed in a wooden crate. Non Returnable

"This product is well worth the money but doesn't come close to generating 50 watts as the best I can get is 10 watts.I get 6.3 volts and 430 volts from it and there is a schematic inside the box.I consider it fully worth the money but it's not what I thought it was."

"This generator will produce 50 watts, but it needs slight surgery to do so.There are at least two basic models, the 50 and the 65. The 65 was made for a Chinese clone of the post-WWII GRC-9 set, and as such delivers 6.3 volts for tube filaments, and 400+ VDC for the B+ voltage.The model 50 generator uses a three phase alternator along with six dioded to produce 24VDC @ 2A, or proportionately more voltage at lighter loading for battery charging. Externally, these units look identical, but are indeed different. The good news is that SOME of the model 65 generators used a transformer to step the low voltage three phase up to high voltage, and also stepped it dow for the filaments. These particular units can be modified by removing the tranformer and adding six diodes, effectively making it a model 50. There was, at one time, instructions on the web for doing this. Good Luck!"

"Well day two is better than what I first expected. After careful examination of my generator I found out I won the crap shoot. All of my labels on the generator show \"50\". The manual shows \"50\". The VA meter goes to 50V/2A. I cranked it up and put a DVM on the output cable and got 25VDC easy as pie. So I guess if you're lucky you'll get a type \"50\" like I did. Otherwise you'll get the 65 and have to modify it. I definately got what I paid for and then some. Thanks to Cheaper Than Dirt for an exceptional deal. Over the weekend I'll post some pictures and scans of what I have. Check mbodesign.com for details. This is a very cool generator and I'm going to put it to good use."

"What a deal. It comes right from the surplus stores all packed up nice and neat in a wooden crate. Inside three packages all sealed nice and tight in good wrapping paper. Inside of that sealed again in waxed paper and I mean sealed. Then good sturdy cardboard boxes. All the goodies are there for anyone who knows what they are. The Chinese manual has a parts list and a schematic for an accessory PCB with the PRINT for the PCB included as well. It even has the major parts you will need to build the PCB. All the transistors and diodes are there. You can modify your unit with these to get your output power up to specs. I've taken pictures of mine and will post them on my website. mbodesign.com. Maybe I got lucky and got more than some people get when they order one. But I am for sure very pleased with what I got. It was wrapped so nicely that I might get another one just to keep it wrapped and prepared. It even comes with two cans of grease!"

"I just received mine and it's set up for 2 amps at 24vdc and 1.5 amps at 30vdc. Excellent."

"Like another guy that gave a review, I received a Type 50 also and got almost 27 vdc with almost no effort cranking. This is a great portable generator. Great for camping trips or emergency back up in running low voltage lights. This was one of the two items I bought from CTD in my first ever purchase from them. I am very please with both items."

"I received a model 50, dated 1981. This unit puts out 24 volts at 2 amps and is not the model 65 advertised. It arrived in perfect condition and is 50% less in price than others being offered. I have charged all kinds of batteries from 1.5 volt to 24 volt - all you have to do is adjust the cranking speed to match the battery. No need to build voltage converters. Thanks to the built in current meter function, you can monitor the charge current and not damage the generator or the battery. This is a great deal!"

"i bought this generator hoping to get a type 50 like the others. Don't hol your breath they arent shipping anymore! This is a generator that is out of date and you cannot find the radios for anywhere. I hope to be able to tear into this and find some sort of a way to convert these 4 pin connectors which you can't even find anywhere on the web, to something able to safely tranfer a load. Wish me luck."

"Received a MS40W. It has two out puts, 12V and 15V. This unit doesn't have a output meter. It has LED's to indicate the output, but they are labled in Chinese as is the booklet. Too early to tell if I made a good buy."

"My mistake. Upon further investigation, I found one of the pins on the generator output fouled with grease. Once I cleaned it with a mild degreaser, all worked well. Just an FYI for future buyers and an apology for my previous post. Also, I ended up with a model 40 which as a previous poster stated will produce either 12VDC or 15VDC depending on choice of cable, works very well for both applications but this unit did not come with any spare parts as advertised. Still, I'm glad to have this model over the model 65 for output reasons."

"My generator seems to work well, the small seat clearly is not made for us corn fed boys; mine broke the second time I sat on it! It also has a four prong plug setup and will not work for any of our two prong American plugs. Does anyone know where to get an adapter for these? The only other solution I can think of would be to splice the cable. All in all I am satisfied with the purchase, it will work well once I get it modified. Any helpful information on the matter would be greatly appreciated."

"Had a couple of these now for a couple of years. They did turn out to be the Model 50s, so I just hacked the pictured cable in half, put Anderson Power Pole connectors on the black and the white leads, and fed the generated 25VDC into NewMar DC-DC converters for 13.8VDC output.This configuration effortlessly powers my ham radios from VX-7, FT-817 up through Ft-897 (no kidding, even running the fan). Have yet to attempt running the ol' FT-1000mp with one of these yet, but it may actually be possible at reduced power.What affects which generator model a customer receives? I dunno.Ordered this same Model 65, but luckily received 2 Model 50s a month apart."

"I got a brand new, in the crate Type MS40W. Not sure how useful it will be as of yet. It is well made and I think will be useful with a little modification."

"This product looks like it could take a serious beating. It had everything it said, it takes almost no effort to crank, and it is much smaller than it looks. The actual alternator box is about 7\"x5\"x4\". I do wish that it came with, or there was a link to, more information about how to configure/mod it to trickle charge batteries or other useful things. I'd appreciate anyone who knows about these things posting to the forums, as I have been all over the internet and have found very little, besides that CTD sells these things for about $150 less than anywhere else. Also, I received the FSW50, so they are obviously still shipping them. Thank you to stctd for the info I do have."

"I just received my generator. It was not new, as it was opened prior, with the wooden case falling apart. Looks to have some water damage, as one of the packages inside was corroded and was found open (by knife). The generator itself does not look damaged, but is the type 30. Not sure what the specs for voltage or wattage is. It's a neat item, but I wish I had received what everyone else received."
