DENSO Introduces ‘PowerEdge’ High Amp Alternator For Medium-, Heavy-Duty Truck Market

Denso-Logo-300x166DENSO has developed a new high-amperage alternator for the medium- and heavy-duty truck market that is smaller, lighter and more efficient. DENSO says the PowerEdge offers advanced alternator features – proven in the automotive market – like the company’s patented segment conductor (SC) technology, which incorporates a 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 states.

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. DENSO’s new PowerEdge alternators are available in 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. In addition, these units are equipped with heavy-duty bearings, advanced long-life brush composition and remote sense technology to prolong battery life. Not only do these highly efficient alternators offer a small, lightweight design, but its compact size and weight offer fleet and truck technicians easier handling and installation.

“Medium- and heavy-duty customers have been looking for a more durable, higher efficiency solution for their growing electrical requirements. DENSO has responded by introducing the lightest, most efficient alternator in today’s market,” said Fran Labun, vice president of sales at DENSO Product and Services Americas. “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.”

DENSO began producing its SC alternator for OEMs in December 1999 and produces and supplies this product in all major regions of the world. The DENSO PowerEdge Alternator provides 100 percent coverage for pad-mount applications.

DENSO’s new product will be available in July 2015.
