Denso unveiled its new PowerEdge brand of starters, alternators, diesel particulate filters, and diesel oxidation catalyst units for Class 8 trucks at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week ’19 in Las Vegas.
Denso also launched www.PowerEdgeProducts.com, a new dedicated website with detailed information on applications and parts.
The new suite of PowerEdge products is designed to meet and exceed the increased electrical demands and emissions control requirements of the heavy-duty trucking industry. PowerEdge builds on Denso’s expertise with starters, alternators, and aftertreament products – DPFs and DOCs – in the heavy-duty segment.
PowerEdge starters feature 12 part numbers with 31,000 applications that cover more than 90% of all Class 8 trucks on the road. Features include over-crank protection that constantly monitors internal temperatures to guard against thermal damage, and integral magnetic switch technology that reduces voltage drop, ensuring the solenoid receives maximum voltage under all starting conditions. All units are 100% new and come with a one-year/unlimited mileage warranty. Starters are available to order now and will ship in February.
Beginning this summer, four 12-volt 170-amp PowerEdge alternators in pad mount and J180 mount types covering nearly all Class 8 trucks in operation will be available. Each unit is built with segment conductor technology that incorporates a square wire copper stator for a lightweight alternator with more efficiency, better conductivity, higher amps at idle and cruising speed, and improved air flow for cooling and longer life. All units are 100% new and come with a one-year/unlimited mileage warranty.
PowerEdge DPFs and DOCs
Available now are PowerEdge aftertreatment products: 53 DPFs with 335 applications and 23 DOCs with 92 applications covering 93% of the heavy-duty market for 2007 or newer Class 8 trucks. PowerEdge also offers 17 DPFs and DOCs covering all diesel applications in the light- and medium-duty markets.
All DPFs and DOCs are designed to meet or exceed original equipment quality. Advantages of the 100% U.S.-sourced components include high-grade stainless steel canisters that increase durability and resist corrosion, advanced filter coating and tough cordierite substrates that reduce active regeneration, decreased backpressure for enhanced performance for fuel and time savings and improved thermal stability and efficiency, according to the company.
PowerEdge DPFs and DOCs are backed by a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
