Granbury, TX, October 1, 2011 – Plane Power, Ltd. announces general availability of the Plane-Power C28-150 alternator. The C28-150 is a lightweight, high-output, gear-driven, 150 Amp alternator for Continental 520 and 550 engines.
Weighing just 13 lbs., the Plane-Power C28-150 alternator replaces OEM alternators which typically weigh more than 20 lbs. During FAA testing Plane Power C28-150 alternators demonstrated the capability to provide 150 Amps continuously at typical engine cruise RPM. The C28-150 also generates more than 60 Amps at just 1,000 engine RPM. C28-150 alternators also feature Plane-Power’s proprietary dual-fan cooling design not only enabling very high continuous output, but also ensuring the highest reliability.
“The key to the C28-150’s performance is its unique combination of highquality components, precision manufactured hair pin stator assembly and a very efficient, proprietary cooling design,” explains Jason Hutchison, Assistant General Manager of Plane Power, Ltd. “At just 13 lbs. installed weight, the C28-150 is unmatched in its ability to provide very high continuous output of 150 Amps while maintaining the lowest operating temperatures in the fleet. The result is a very high output alternator with very high reliability.”
Every Plane-Power lightweight alternator is precision balanced and features precision component tolerances which reduce vibration and greatly extended service life. Plane-Power alternators also feature built-in noise filtration avoiding the need for additional filters and greatly simplifying Plane-Power alternator installations.
