The stator consists of twelve (12) coils, each wound over a laminated iron core. The coils are positioned radially around the engine crankshaft and bolted to the outside of the engine crankcase.

There are two series windings on the stator, an output winding and a regulator winding. The output winding consists of several strands of wire in parallel, wound around each core, forming a continuous circuit from coil to coil. The regulator winding consists of a single strand of the same size wire also wound continuously around each core from coil to coil, but wound in the reverse direction. The output winding has a center tap which permits full wave rectification in the rectifier-regulator unit, called a module.
