Perkins starters – designed for you
The starter delivers the power required to start the compression sequence in the diesel engine. It draws its charge from the battery, which in turn is continuously charged while the engine is running. You can only rely on your Perkins engine if the starting and charging system is effective and fully functional. For this reason, the starter is designed specifically for your Perkins engine. Extensive testing of the starters and alternators guarantees maximum service life. This ensures that each individual starter can be started at least 36,000 times – the equivalent of approximately ten times a day for almost 10 years.
Electrical components from Perkins – powerfully out of hibernation
- High reliability and long service life
- Starter motors and spare parts at the latest state of the art
- Safe engine start and high vibration resistance
- Safe function of starter motor and alternator (generator)
Please change the starter motor if the starting process can only be slowed down. It takes longer for the engine to react and start. This could be a defect in the starter motor.
With the alternator, the tension of the belt is important. If it is too loose, it will slip. If the belt tension is too high, the bearings of the alternator can be damaged. The optimal tuning of all components is therefore absolutely essential to ensure that your engine runs reliably.
- Optimal power transmission
- Perfect running characteristics
- Reliability and strength through fibre reinforcements
Remember that: When the alternator (generator) is replaced, the fan belt should also be replaced, too. The connecting cables should also be checked and replaced if necessary.
