APS alternators provide charging capability for Matco Tools trucks

For today’s lithium-ion energy storage systems, APS alternators and smart alternator regulators can provide the charging capability end-users need to get work done – all without noisy generators or engine idling.

Such is the case with a recently released line of trucks from Matco Tools, an Ohio-based manufacturer and distributor of automotive tools, equipment and toolboxes. The new trucks utilize APS alternators to charge lithium-ion energy storage systems that allow franchisees to power up overnight and run air conditioning, lights and computers during the day.

The company debuted the new line of trucks in February at its National Tool Expo Conference in San Diego.

Matco Tools partnered with Summit Bodyworks to build the vehicles in collaboration with Volta Power Systems, a Michigan-based manufacturer of automotive-grade lithium-ion energy storage systems for small- and medium-sized OEMs. APS was tapped to provide alternators for the new line.

APS develops and provides alternators and smart alternator regulators that will safely and effectively charge today’s lithium-ion storage systems for a diverse array of applications, from recreation to commercial vehicles and more.

We also supply complete systems -- including alternator(s), alternator regulator and lithium-ion battery storage packs – to armored and security vehicle integrators, as well as commercial vehicle up-fitters outside the United States.
