PS Tips: Alternators & accessories

In the new PS Tips video (below), parts specialist Kevin from Diesel Technic explains the structure and function of an alternator. He also looks at the different construction forms that need to be considered.

The alternators from DT Spare Parts are available in various sizes and current ratings from 29 to 140 amps.

In terms of voltage, a distinction is made between alternating and direct current alternators. As the names suggest, AC voltage alternators output different current values. This means that they are mainly used in bus transport, as the current voltage must be adapted to the various functions on the bus.

The product promotion includes 185 articles of the brand DT Spare Parts. In addition to the alternators, the brand has many individual accessories. These include repair kits, pulleys, carbon brushes and rectifiers.

These and other products can be found in the new Diesel Technic Partner Portal. The articles can for example be used for the brands DAF, Fendt, Fiat, Iveco, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Neoplan, Renault, Scania and Volvo.
