DENSO debuts high-amp alternator

DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc., is now shipping PowerEdge, its new series of high-amp alternators developed for medium- and heavy-duty commercial trucks.

Compact and fuel-efficient, DENSO says PowerEdge alternators have a durability rating of more than 400,000 miles.

“PowerEdge is a game-changer for the commercial trucking industry,” says Frank Jenkins, senior manager of DPAM’s Heavy Duty Marketing Group. “It meets the market’s rigorous duty-cycle demands while saving fuel, increasing battery life and lowering operational costs.”

DENSO says PowerEdge alternators are designed to meet the higher electrical requirements and increased battery loads of the most powerful trucks on the road today. The product line’s features include heavy-duty bearings, advanced long-life brush composition, remote sense technology and DENSO’s patented segment conductor technology that incorporates its innovative square copper wire stator design, the company says.

And measuring just 7.7 inches long and weighing up to 10 lbs. less than competitors, PowerEdge is also the smallest and lightest alternator in its class, DENSO says.

“PowerEdge is a top-performing alternator that provides higher amps at idle and cruise speeds, faster charging and rapid battery recovery. It is also remarkably easy to handle and install,” Jenkins says. “With its unmatched efficiency and long life, this may be the last alternator you put in your truck.”

PowerEdge alternators come with a three-year, unlimited-mile extended warranty with product registration.

Also, coinciding with the launch, DENSO says it has upgraded its Commercial and Heavy-Duty website. The site now offers convenient access for smartphone and tablet users, as well as new navigational features. “We’ve made it easier than ever for customers to access all our products and services,” Jenkins says.
