Plane-Power Re-Introduces Its Popular Line of High Output, Gear-Driven Alternators

July 18, 2016

Family of factory-rebuilt alternators is designed to produce abundant electrical power output from large-bore Continental and Lycoming engines.

 Montgomery, AL, (July 18, 2016)  — Mike Disbrow, president of Hartzell Engine Technologies, announced today that the company is re-introducing its Plane-Power C28-150 and C14-100 line of FAA-PMA certified, 28V/150 Amp and 14V/100 Amp high output, gear-driven alternators.

“The Plane-Power C28-150 and C14-100 series of high output gear-driven alternators were very popular with customers, but we encountered sourcing issues that needed to be resolved before we could again meet market demands,” Disbrow said. “The resolution is to offer factory-rebuilt units until the new sources can be brought on line.”

“There will be some internal components, that while not new, will be inspected, tested and certified to meet new standards,” he added. “These factory-rebuilt units will carry the same two-year warranty offered on every new Plane-Power alternator.

“The Plane-Power C28-150 and C14-100 gear-driven alternators deliver more continuous power at lower engine RPMs than any other aircraft alternator,” Disbrow said. “Aircraft owners with high electrical demand during ground operations; such as those with sophisticated avionics suites or electrically-driven air conditioning systems, will appreciate the abundant electrical power they will get at idle with these Plane-Power alternators.”

  • C28-150-FR, Factory Rebuilt 28V/150A, includes Debris Shield and Blast Tube
