Bosch has introduced its highest-output compact off-highway alternator for power, fuel savings, and reliability: the 240-A, 14-V (150-A, 28-V) “P” or Power-feature alternator. To meet the demands of higher underhood temperatures and output demands, the P-feature combines high output efficiency with increased temperature resistance. Offering 77% efficiency and a mass less than 19 lb (8.6 kg), the alternator uses less fuel, thereby reducing operational costs. Dual internal fans keep the internal components cool under extreme conditions. Bosch’s P-feature alternators are suitable for construction, forestry, or agriculture.
