Hartzell Engine Technologies has received FAA PMA approval for its new ALV-9610 100-amp aircraft alternator.
The Hartzell ALV-9610 is a lightweight, compact design with integral noise filtering that directly replaces traditional larger, heavier gear driven 100-amp Crittendon and ALV-9510 units on Continental -470, -520 and -550 series engines, company officials said.
The ALV-9610 is the latest in a line of lightweight alternator designs purpose-built and optimized, not only for aviation use, but also for these specific applications, resulting in a high output 100-amp unit weighing only 12.75 pounds that require no additional shrouds or any change to the voltage regulator, company officials said, adding the new unit’s small package size makes it easier to install and saves up to 9.25 pounds per alternator.
“Since acquiring the business in late 2010, Hartzell Engine Technologies has been committed to improving the quality of its alternators and bringing new technology to the market. When compared to the bigger, heavier units it replaces, our new ALV-9610 is a very dramatic example of that commitment,” stated Mike Disbrow, president of Hartzell Engine Technologies.
List price for the ALV-9610 is $1,100 plus a core charge of $425 and includes a 2-year warranty.
Hartzell Engine Technologies, along with its sister company Hartzell Propeller, form the general aviation business units of Tailwind Technologies Inc., a growing aerospace technology company. Hartzell Engine Technologies is an OEM supplier of aircraft cabin heating solutions and engine accessories, including turbocharging systems, aircraft alternators, starters, fuel pumps, ignition system components and electronics.
