Armored & security products

Our ruggedly constructed alternators and dual-alternator systems provide dependable performance with ultra-reliable components in the charging system, delivering 195 amps at idle and 360 amps at maximum. Output provided by stock OE chassis 12-volt alternators will not compare.

Our engineers designed APS heavy-duty converters with military applications in mind. These low-profile units handle a wide input range to deliver stable output with high efficiency.

APS high-idle controls raise idle RPM to ensure consistent electrical power to ancillary vehicle systems when the engine is at rest.
