DENSO's PowerEdge is a high amperage alternator for the medium-duty truck market that achieves higher efficiency in a smaller, more lightweight design.

The PowerEdge was designed to address increased electrical requirements for trucks with a more efficient and durable design. The alternator can be up to 10 pounds lighter than competitive offerings, according to the company.

The alternator makes use of DENSO's segment conductor technology that incorporates a square wire copper stator design. The segment conductor is designed to be efficient and produces more amps at idle.

The PowerEdge is also equipped with heavy-duty bearings, long-life brush composition, and remote sense technology to prolong battery life. The alternator’s compact and lightweight design also lends itself to easier installation and handling for technicians.

DENSO offers the PowerEdge in 170-, 185-, 205- and 220-amp versions. It will be available in July.
