Mitsubishi Electric has launched its new, "full-featured" Diamond Power S60 (DPS60) starter as an upgrade for Freightliner and Western Star trucks using the Detroit DD15 and DD16 engines. Available through all North American heavy-duty truck dealers and many aftermarket distributors, the high-powered DPS60 starter increases both starter and battery life through improved thermal durability and lower current draw. The DPS60 was developed specifically to address a need for an alternative starter for Freightliner and Western Star trucks built since 2010 with DD15 and DD16 engines, though the DPS60 is not limited to Freightliner and Western Star applications. Mitsubishi says it is the most powerful starter it has ever offered. Key benefits and features of the DPS60 include faster cranking speeds in cold weather from increased power and cranking torque; longer battery life due to a 15% reduction in current draw, resulting in less battery discharge while cranking; high-efficiency design allowing longer cranking times, with no need for over-crank protection; improved thermal durability that provides longer starter life; and improved corrosion resistance, lasting three times longer than previous models.
