Denso introduces high amp alternator for medium-, heavy-duty trucks

Denso has developed a new high amperage alternator for the medium- and heavy-duty truck market.

According to the manufacturer, the PowerEdge offers advanced alternator features like Denso’s patented segment conductor technology, which incorporates an innovative square wire copper stator design. By leveraging Denso’s innovative design and manufacturing technologies, the PowerEdge achieves higher efficiency in a smaller, more lightweight design, which translates into improved fuel economy, the company said.

“Denso has harnessed its cutting-edge technology in order to provide a much-needed solution for the commercial truck market,” Frank Jenkins, senior manager of Denso Product and Services Americas’ Commercial and Heavy Duty Group, said. “In addition to its improved efficiency and higher amps at idle, the Denso PowerEdge alternator can be up to 10-lbs. lighter than the industry’s competition. This means reduced fuel consumption over the long haul, which can save thousands of dollars per truck per year.”

Denso’s SC alternator design has been optimized to provide the durability and long life needed to meet the severe demands of heavy- and medium-duty trucks, the company said.

PowerEdge alternators offer four output versions: 170 amp, 185 amp, 205 amp and 220 amp. Each unit features the same SC stator, producing higher efficiency and more amps at idle, Denso said. Additionally, these units are equipped with heavy-duty bearings, advanced long-life brush composition and remote sense technology to prolong battery life.

“Medium- and heavy-duty customers have been looking for a more durable, higher efficiency solution for their growing electrical requirements,” said Fran Labun, vice president of Sales at Denso Product and Services Americas. “Denso has responded by introducing the lightest, most efficient alternator in today’s market. Denso has long been regarded as a leader in the global OEM market. This Denso PowerEdge was developed specifically for the increasing demands of the truck market and demonstrates our strengthened commitment to our customers.”

The new alternator will be available in July 2015.
