Firm Notes that It Provides Cummins Westport’s Spark Plugs Too
Denso took the occasion of ACT Expo 2015 to promote its new high amperage alternator for the medium and heavy duty truck market. Denso’s new PowerEdge alternator “is smaller, lighter and more efficient than the industry competition,” the company says.
Patented SC/segment conductor technology incorporating an innovative square wire copper stator design makes for better power density.
“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 says.
Higher Amps at Idle
“Denso has harnessed its cutting-edge technology in order to provide a much-needed solution for the commercial truck market,” senior manager Frank Jenkins says in a release.
“In addition to its improved efficiency and higher amps at idle, the Denso PowerEdge alternator can be up to ten pounds lighter than the industry’s competition,” he said.
“This means reduced fuel consumption over the long haul, which can save thousands of dollars per truck per year.”
In addition to the square-wire SC stator, the new Denso alternators feature heavy duty bearings, advanced long-life brush composition, and remote sense technology to prolong battery life.
The PowerEdge line includes four output versions: 170, 185, 205, and 220 amps.
The new PowerEdge alternator will be available in July 2015.
Denso also noted in Dallas that it supplies the three-ground spark plugs for the dedicated-natural gas engines offered by Cummins Westport.
The next ACT Expo has been scheduled for May 2-5, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.
