New Alternator from Mitsubishi Designed for Electrification Needs

Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America, Inc. has introduced its GX alternator, which is featured on popular North American vehicles being launched for the 2015 model year and continas an alternator that is designed to allow automakers to meet the trend toward ever-increasing electrification requirements.

Commented Mark Rakoski, executive director at Mitsubishi’s Michigan office, “The GX is a dependable, high-output alternator that meets the electrical and reliability needs of both current and future vehicles.”

Mitsubishi Electric’s GX series uses a robust cooling structure coupled with upgrades to proven technologies from prior alternator generations. These advancements result in significant increases to both overall output (amps) and efficiency ratings.

The GX series is available in a wide range of output options. The 250A (amp) version weighs just 6.6kg and has one of the highest output/weight ratios in the automotive industry.

The context is clear: <anufacturers are required to meet increasingly aggressive CO2 emissions targets. These factors are pushing traditional hydraulic/belt-driven vehicle accessories toward electric motors. For example, components such as hydraulic power-steering systems have given way to electric power steering in recent years.
