New Prestolite Fan Alternators Offer Less Weight, Additional Amps and Higher Temperature Rating

The Prestolite AVi2800 features a streamlined fan design which offers 33% less weight than any of its antecedents. This new internal fan alternator is also offered with an expanded temperature rating to +125°C. These improvements significantly optimize AVi2800 cooling efficiencies, particularly within higher temperature environments.
In addition, the new AVi2800 includes an additional 30 amps (190 amps, as compared to 160 amps for legacy models), allowing it to provide substantially more power at idle. Units are also remote sensing capable, ground isolated and e-coated for enhanced protection from corrosion, humidity and moisture. They are easily installed via positive and negative wire connections and J180 mounting pad configurations.
The Prestolite AVi2800 internal fan alternator is ideal for high-performance aftermarket retrofit upgrades, particularly within older model school buses and heavy trucks, or in applications where weight reduction, higher temperature and higher power are target goals. Quantities of the new AVi2800 are also now available for immediate customer order as “A” stock from the company’s Florence, Kentucky-based distribution center.
