"Our high output alternator portfolio, including the 36SI, 38SI and 40SI, provides an option for every type of truck application," he says.
The 38SI is ideal for school buses, line-haul commercial trucks with anti-idling equipment, emergency vehicles, refuse trucks, utility vehicles, shuttle buses and recreational vehicles.
High Efficiency = Fuel Savings
The 38SI has the highest efficiency rating in its class. High efficiency translates to less engine horsepower requirements, resulting in substantial fuel savings. To assess the impact on the overall vehicle and electrical system, Remy collected real-time operating data on several vehicle applications. Data shows that, over a typical life cycle, there is a fuel cost savings as alternator efficiency increases 60 to 72 percent. Fleets can calculate their potential cost savings using the Fuel Economy Calculator at delcoremy.com.
