"We operate a fleet of 14 buses on short routes in central Kentucky, where we do a lot of idling. We were going through alternators every six to 12 months. The summer months were the hardest and when most failures would occur. Jim Dunlap made me aware of some new alternator technology on the market and suggested we try it out. He said they had success with it in Florida. We decided to give it a try and switched to the 255HPI-GM66-12 alternator. Almost three years after making the switch, we just had our first failure. Jim’s suggestion saved us a lot of money, and more importantly, it saved us downtime on our units from frequent alternator failure. We were able to better serve our customers while minimizing passenger hassle and discomfort. If you have an operation where you need a high output alternator at a low idle, then you should give these a try.

"On these boats, the engine runs continuously. While maximum output isn't a key consideration, strong output at idle RPM is critical because the alternators must meet all on-board current demands, as we use minimally-sized house batteries to keep weight down. We see 50 amps at idle, continuously, whether they're running for a three-hour buoy race or a week-long transatlantic record attempt.

There's so much energy at idle, we've switched from gas stoves to DC-powered instant water heaters for safety, weight and convenience!

If you're looking for big case, high-output alternators for applications where reliability and weight are important, you just can't beat American Power alternators."
