Overhauled Exchange Alternators
Factory overhauled units available on an exchange basis (i.e. with a core charge) are less than new, although they have gone through a thorough reconditioning process and contain new brushes, diodes, bearing and other parts. These are built and tested on the same equipment as used for new alternators. In some cases, these are still offered when new units are no longer available.
Prestolite originally developed this style of alternator, but the designs have continued to be refined and improved by Plane-Power. These have widespread use on legacy OEM applications. Many are PMA approved as identical, direct-fit replacements for the OEM part numbers.
ES Series were internally developed by Plane-Power to provide customized solutions for OEM applications as well as new PMA approved alternatives to Ford, Chrysler and CMI/Crittenden units. ES Series aircraft alternators are OEM on a range of general aviation applications, including piston, single-engine turboprops and single-engine light jets. In addition, light weight/high power density ES Series alternators are seeing extensive use on UAV applications.
ASG Series alternators were originally developed by Aero Electric and are OEM on several Cessna applications and PMA replacements for out-of-production 24V Ford alternators. The ASG aircraft alternator designs incorporated several improvements over the Ford alternators they replaced.
Jasco alternators were originally developed by Skytronics to support legacy aircraft supplanting older generators. There are several STC generator to alternator conversions, as well as PMA approved aircraft alternators for many aircraft with vintage engines.
In addition to offering overhauled versions of our products, we also overhaul Ford. We have PMA’d new replacement components for these brands. These go through the same process as our own products and meet our rigorous quality standards.
