Denso Products and Services Americas, an affiliate of mobility supplier Denso Corp., has introduced the J180 mount alternator to its line of PowerEdge (PE) aftermarket products.
The addition of this model expands coverage of Denso’s high-performance PE starters and alternators to more than 90 percent of all Class 8 trucks on the road today, Denso says.
“We’re excited to add the J180 to our line of 12-volt, 170-amp 24PE alternators whose quality, reliability and durability are unmatched,” says Gilbert Ramirez, manager of Denso Heavy Duty Product Planning. “Based on their superior RPM output, efficiency, size and craftmanship, these alternators lower the total cost of ownership to keep trucks in motion and companies in business.”
Denso’s PowerEdge brand has grown to 18 part numbers of replacement starters and alternators that meet and exceed the electrical demands of the heavy-duty rigs that drive the economy. PowerEdge electrical parts cover Class 8 trucks build by the world’s leading manufacturers, including Freightliner, Hino, International, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, Sterling, Volvo and Western Star.
Standard on the 24PE alternator is Denso’s patented rectangular segment conductor (SC) technology. This cutting-edge square wire copper stator makes the 24PE a compact, lightweight alternator that consistently delivers higher amps at idle and cruising speeds and outlasts the competition, the company says.
Also standard on the 24PE alternator is its remote sense function, which allows batteries to recharge faster after start-up and extends battery life. Only a handful of competitors have this feature, and none deliver more power than the 24PE, Denso adds.
The 24PE alternator requires less engine power, which adds fuel savings to the unit’s advantages. All PowerEdge products are 100 percent new with no core charge and built with original-equipment technology backed by a one-year/unlimited mileage warranty.
The 24PE alternator is among the PowerEdge heavy-duty aftermarket products that pair Denso’s world-class engineering, design and standards with its supply chain partnerships to meet the industry’s growing demand for premium parts at competitive prices.
They include the 39PE Gear Reduction Starter, the 43PE Direct Drive Starter, and aftertreatment products — diesel particulate filters and diesel oxidation catalysts — for capturing tailpipe emissions.
