Introduction to DRL

At DRL our aim is to provide voltage regulators of superior design to improve charging systems of many varieties of dynamo equipped machinery. Modern electronics can greatly enhance the performance and reliability compared with original electromechanical regulators. Even after this commonly weak area on classic vehicles has been greatly improved plenty of challenges remain to provide enjoyable fettling!

Business Description

Our focus is high performance replacement dynamo regulators to control the output of classic vehicle dynamos (d.c. generators). We pride ourselves on being the prime innovators in electronic dynamo regulator design. Our products include the DVR2, DVR3 and DVR4 regulators. The various types are suited to many different motorcycle, car, boat, tractor, generator sets . . . (you name it!) dynamo or dc generator powered electrical systems. We view product development as a continuing process. There is always room for improvement, even with regards to small details. As such constructive feedback on your experiences using our products is welcomed.

Dynamo Regulators Ltd researches, designs and manages all aspects of product engineering, production and quality. This makes DRL unique among established regulator suppliers (certainly in the UK); the rest are simply stockists. All DRL regulator products are manufactured in the UK. We test every regulator thoroughly prior to dispatch. Be confident purchasing from the experts with in depth expertise in our specialist field. We don't just sell regulator 'units', we take pride in our products and know them from the individual component level up.

We are not able to give detailed advice for vehicles of all makes, models and years where our regulators may be appropriate (we hope that sounds reasonable). In the end it is down to the purchaser to select the correct earth polarity, voltage and current rating to suit their perhaps rare Vintage or Classic vehicle. Most marques will have their experts with all the information to hand or at least with access to all the handbooks, and these days often accessible on-line. We can't do all the leg work for you. That said we will offer assistance with regulator relevant technical and application information and advice wherever we are able.

The Company is registered in the UK, number 07295701, registered address: 75 Titchfield Park Road, Fareham, Hampshire, PO15 5RN. The Sole Director is Michael John Hutchings, BSc(Eng), C.Eng.
