Leece-Neville Announces New Titan brand gear reduced starter motors

PG1007_Titan125.jpgLeece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems Division of Prestolite Electric announced today the release of the Titan™ Series of heavy duty, in-line gear reduced starter motors. "Our complete line of 12 volt gear reduced starter motors will be marketed under the Titan™ brand in North America", says Eric Bippus, Vice President of Worldwide Aftermarket Sales. "The Titan™ series reflects our global commitment to advanced engineering in our core business, producing the highest quality rotating electrical components specifically designed for the heavy duty marketplace."

 

The initial release of the Titan™ series will include models in the 101, 105 and 125 mm frame size. The three sizes will provide coverage for the most popular heavy duty diesel engines in 12 volt applications ranging from 6 to 16 liter. The flagship of the new line, the Titan™125, is a 125mm starter that was engineered from the ground up for the largest of these engines.

 

"We recognized in 2005 that there was a need for an in-line, gear reduced starter that would be capable of cranking future big bore diesel engines. We understood, through our relationships with all of the major diesel engine manufacturers, that the EPA mandates of 2007 and 2010 would be placing additional demands on the starting / charging environments in all heavy diesels, and especially in the 15-16 liter range," says Bippus. "We set out to create a 'best of breed' starter that would encompass the most advanced features currently available, and have the power to crank these new diesel engines in the most demanding environments. The Titan™125 has been in fleet tests from Alaska to Australia since early in 2006 with outstanding results, we know that we’ve got a product that is head and shoulders above anything else that is currently available."

Leece-Neville Announces New MultiPower Load Sharing Alternators

PG1011_Multi-Power.jpgLeece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems Division of Prestolite Electric announced today the release of a new 270 amp alternator featuring a patent-pending regulator design that allows for up to 4 alternators to be installed on a single application. "Leece-Neville has built a reputation as the premier high amperage alternator manufacturer", says Eric Bippus, Vice President of Worldwide Aftermarket Sales "and this new design is a perfect addition to that high amperage lineup. The unique regulator design on this model allows it to share the dynamic load of the vehicle in a perfect balance between up to 4 alternators, for a staggering 1,040 total system amps. What's more, the only thing required to create this load sharing capability is the installation of a single transmit / receive wire between the alternators."

 

In most applications where more than one alternator is installed on a vehicle the total load of the vehicle is not effectively shared between the units. This creates a situation where one of the alternators is supplying its maximum output and the other one is supplying little or none, leading to premature failure of the working alternator. The patent-pending design of the MultiPower™ alternators allows for the alternators to constantly monitor total system demand and the output of the other installed alternators, and to dynamically adjust their own output to exactly match the output of all other alternators in that system.

Leece-Neville Announces New 185 Amp 12 Volt Brushless Alternator

FL1096_185A_Brushless.jpgLeece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems Division of Prestolite Electric announced today the release of a new 185 amp 12 volt model brushless alternator. "We are expanding the line of our brushless alternators to take on the needs of today’s heavy duty environments," says Scott Miller, Director of Aftermarket Sales. "New diesel engines are running hotter than ever before. In addition, there are continued increases in the demand for electrical power in just about every application we are seeing. The 185 amp brushless alternator is targeted for the high amperage, high temperature application where long life and dependable service is paramount. This unit will initially be launched approved for applications up to 110°C, but additional improvements during 2007 will allow us to offer units with a rating of 125°C later this year."

 

The new 185 amp models will leverage the proven solid lead frame technology and high temperature features that have been incorporated into other brushless models since 2002. High temperature avalanche diodes are welded to a solid lead frame in the rectifier instead of being soldered, greatly improving resistance to high temperatures and vibration. High temperature stator wire, high temperature bearings and progressive design improvements to the regulator further enhance the alternators resistance to high temperatures.

Leece-Neville Announces Upgrade of 4000 Series Alternators

FL1094_4000.jpgLeece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems Division of Prestolite Electric announced today the re-design of its popular high amperage 4000 series alternators. "We have been the one of the industry leaders in discussing the effects that the new EPA compliant engines have had on operating temperatures under the hood." says Scott Miller, Director of Aftermarket Sales. "We started upgrading our products to live in these high temperatures before the first round of those new engines hit the road in the fall of 2002. Our high amp, 4000 series alternators are already rated for 110°C applications, but we know that 2007 and 2010 engines are going to be even hotter. We can’t afford to rest there, we know that we have to get these alternators ready to survive in applications up to 125°C."

 

The design changes include the implementation of a solid lead frame design for both internal and external rectifiers that are used in the 200, 270 and 320 amp versions of the 4000 series alternators. The design of these lead frames greatly reduces the number of wiring connection points within the alternator. These connection points will now become permanently welded or will be part of the mechanical assembly of the alternator. This design greatly increases the alternators resistance to high temperatures and vibration.

Leece-Neville Announces Upgrade of 8SC/SCJ Alternator Series

FL1095_8SC-SCJ.jpgLeece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems Division of Prestolite Electric announced today the re-design of its 8SC/SCJ series of alternators, primarily used in the agricultural and off-highway marketplace.

 

The improvements are centered on the solid lead frame technology that is currently in place on the brushless alternator platform, and in the process of being implemented on the high amperage 4000 series of alternators. The design incorporates a single, solid lead frame that spans the rectifier assembly, and provides for welded connections to the diodes. Additional improvements include high temperature avalanche diodes, high temperature bearings and the use of high temperature wire in the stator windings.
