Prestolite Electric has announced the expansion of the Leece-Neville IdlePro series of heavy-duty alternators designed to deliver excellent output at low engine speeds.

The new products feature a 24-volt 120- and 180-amp output with dual internal fan design. The new IdlePro 24V 120- and 180-amp high-efficiency/high-output alternators are made for high-heat, high-performance heavy-duty applications including construction, agriculture, coach, bus, and industrial vehicles.

Other key features of the new alternators are heavy-duty bearings for high belt loads and intelligent multifunction regulators with load share capability for multiple alternator use. The new 24-volt alternators were designed for CAT, Cummins, Volvo, and many other original equipment manufacturers' engines.

“This is an exciting addition to our IdlePro product line,” said Jonathan Smith, assistant director, aftermarket sales and marketing, Prestolite Electric. “The new 24-volt IdlePro alternators have the potential to extend service life, increase vehicle uptime and improve performance by enhancing the electrical system.”
