Our troops work in the harshest of environments – from battlefields to freezing waters and hot deserts – there is no place a country’s military would not go to protect national interests and its citizens. So, it is only reasonable that they need the latest and most durable equipment that can withstand wear and damage, while still functioning as desired.
Here at RFL Alternators, we are engaged in manufacturing the most reliable alternators using powerful neodymium magnets suited for all military applications for over a decade. Modern military vehicles are equipped with a number of electronics such as winches, radars, radios, missile targeting system in tanks, computers, and other onboard devices which all require power to operate.
Alternators are the heart of electrical systems in any vehicle. An alternator supplies power to keep the engine electronics running round the clock. These are also responsible for supplying power to all on-board electronics including the air con, and keeping the batteries charged. If an alternator fails, it may leave vehicles immobile and once backup batteries die, all electronics on board will be rendered useless.
Sensitive Military Applications
Alternators are not only used in military cars or jeeps, but other important military applications as well including:
- Battle Tanks: For powering onboard systems such as navigation, communication and missile targeting;
- All Trucks: Light armoured vehicles, personnel carriers, HUMVEES, Australian Army G-Wagon, etc.;
- Boars and Ships: On-board power generation for pumps and several high-amperage uses;
- Helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles and airplanes;
- Other long-service life and high-electrical demanding applications.
Fun Fact: The Australian Bushmaster uses a 28 Volt, 300 Amp alternator to power up!
Military vehicles have high electrical demands and most alternators struggle with idle-speed generation. We offer a wide spectrum of permanent magnet alternators utilizing a ground-breaking magnetic flux technology with minimal electronics, making our patented designs one of the most efficient in the market with up to 95% efficiency with a 30% less environmental footprint.
The ideal smaller size and lower weight of our alternators allow for up to 15% savings in fuel as well! RFL Alternators designs and manufactures highly sophisticated, powerful and efficient products made to withstand the harshest of environments and operating conditions, requiring only minimal maintenance.
