No field

I have a next step regulator from 2001 combined with a dual alternator controller, and it appears the field generator within has stopped working. The indicator LED shows bulk charge but the field output is only .5V. I manually applied field current to my next up alternators and they work fine. All the fuses are good and the regulator is getting 13+ volts. Any ideas?

Assuming I need a new regulator will the new V3 three work with my dual alternator controllers? I like the old next talk because it had a voltage control which is very useful in charging my lithium batteries.

If you post the information from the Troubleshooting Guide we might discover something wrong besides failure.
