Denso Sales California, an affiliate of Japan's Denso Corp., announced its new PA 90S medium-duty starter and expanded coverage for its R5.0 heavy-duty starter at TMC's annual meeting last month.
The PA 90S planetary gear reduction starter is designed for medium-duty vehicles powered by 3- to 7-liter diesel engines. According to Denso, the starter's design allows for easy installation and reduces total vehicle weight, while improved torque maximizes starting power and improves cold starting. The 12V, 3 kW unit weighs 15.5 lb.
Expanded coverage for the R5.0 offset gear reduction starter (12V, 5 kW and 23 lb.), which was introduced last July for 10- to 16-liter diesels, includes three new part numbers for Class 8 Cummins, Detroit Diesel and Volvo engines.
