 Caterpillar Forklift Alternator

At present, Caterpillar Forklift trucks are undoubtedly the best choice in heavy material handling. Along with premium quality & service excellence you can also expect to have a constant link of technical development from Caterpillar Forklifts.


The alternator is an essential component of a forklift engine. In this article we will discuss more about the basic operation of a forklift alternator.


A forklift alternator is an electromechanical device & it is able to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. Normally you will find it connected with a starter motor. The main function of the alternator is to recharge the battery & power the electrical system of the forklift truck while the engine is operating. This small, rotating machine performs its function as an alternating current & it gets the power from internal combustion engines. This alternating current is then converted into direct current by silicon diodes & a set of rectifiers. This direct current need to be supplied with low ripple & a three-phase winding does this job. A solenoid is also present in the system that operates as an electrical switch.  


Now you know about the forklift alternators, the next thing that comes to your mind is the quality & the cost of this product. Here in Solid Lift Parts you can get the best quality Caterpillar Forklift Alternators within your affordable range.
