Prestolite Adds New 275-Amp Alternator To IdlePro Extreme Line

Prestolite Adds New 275-Amp Alternator To IdlePro Extreme Line

Prestolite will produce the brushless alternators at its Arcade, New York, factory.

Prestolite Electric announced that it will begin producing a new line of Leece-Neville IdlePro Extreme 24-volt 275-amp brushless alternators at its 350,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Arcade, New York, later this month.  

“As the needs of our customers continue to broaden and diversify, we’re excited to add new product lines to keep their vehicles running at peak efficiency,” said Prestolite Electric Vice President of Sales for North America, South America and Australia Nick Laenen. “And we’re pleased to bring additional manufacturing capabilities to our Arcade plant, where we know we can count on a talented and experienced team that is committed to the highest levels of quality.”

Leece-Neville IdlePro Extreme high-efficiency/high-output alternators deliver exceptional output at low engine speeds, in a lighter-weight and lower-maintenance package, according to the company. They provide the power to meet and maintain vehicle-system voltage requirements, which results in better battery life and greater overall vehicle uptime. 

The all-new, no-core alternators also feature Isolated Ground technology, which eliminates stray voltage and protects the engine from potentially severe electrolytic damage. The technology eliminates electrical noise that can cause ghost or false engine codes and result in unnecessary diagnostic troubleshooting and increased vehicle downtime.

The alternators are covered by a three-year, 350,000-mile warranty (unlimited miles for bus applications).

The Arcade facility is IATF 16949 and ISO 14001:2015 certified and produces alternators and starters for Class 5 through Class 8 commercial vehicles.
