36SI Heavy Duty Alternator


The New Standard
For the Fleets

There are good reasons why our best heavy


duty alternator is fast becoming the standard
spec on so many original equipment engines.
It features a brushless design, high efficiency
output and remote battery sense for the ultimate in battery management.

Brushless Design for Long Life


Since brushes are the most vulnerable point of
wear on the typical alternator, youd think that
all alternators would be brushless. But the electronics of brushless alternators are more complicated, making them more expensive to
manufacture. Thats why most alternators still
use brushes.
The Delco Remy 36SI alternator, on the other
hand, is a pure brushless design. With fewer
moving parts, fewer wear parts, it lasts longer.
That means we are able to give it unbeatable
warranty coverage. For OE and new service applications, the 36SI HP series part numbers referenced in this brochure are covered by a 3
year/350,000 mile warranty. Reman units are
covered by a 2 year/250,000 mile warranty.
High Efficiency By Design
Because of the extremely efficient design of
the 36SI, less engine horsepower is needed to

run the unit. So more horsepower is available


to run the truck. That translates directly into
fuel savings.
The savings are significant.
Based on some conservative parameters* a
truck equipped with a 36SI will save $80 over
an identical truck using a Denso 130A for

36SI 12-Volt Performance Curves

Performance Output:

every 100,000 miles driven. Thats calculated


for a 60 Amp load. As the load increases, the
savings get even better. For an 80 Amp load,
the savings reach and impressive $125 for
every 100,000 miles driven. Multiply that
times the trucks in your fleet and the miles you
drive every year and the choice becomes clear.
Remote Sense for Intelligent
Battery Management
Due to resistance in battery cables, environmental factors and other conditions, the voltage from the alternator drops by the time it
reaches the battery. Just because the alternator

is sending 14 volts doesnt mean that the batteries are receiving 14 volts. Thats why weve
included Remote Sense on most models.
With Remote Sense, a second wire reads the
actual voltage at the battery thats coming
from the alternator. It signals the alternator to
boost its output to compensate for voltage drop
ensuring 14 volts at the battery. Research has
shown that an increase of just 1/2 volt, when
needed, can cut the battery charge time in half.
At the end of the day, it can make the difference between batteries that are fully charged
and those that arent.

INSTALLATION DETAILS

The 36SI is available in three different mounting configurations: a J180 hinge mount, a J180
quad mount and a pad mount. The images
above provide the critical dimensions for each
mounting style. The photos below will aid in
core identification.

36SI Heavy Duty Alternator


BRUSHLESS TECHNOLOGY transfers electrical current between the rotor and stator air-gap eliminating the
need for brushes, wear components, dramatically increasing the durability and life of the alternator.
New larger negative heat sink bridge for
improved cooling and durability in the
presence of todays increase in underhood operating temperatures.

Remote Sense terminal improves battery


charging efficiency and overall battery life.

Hot-forged rotor with specially hardened


core significantly improves performance,
especially at idle speeds.

New stator design uses electrical grade lamination steel


with extremely high copper fill in the stator slots to yield
the best performance and efficiency in the industry.

Highest rated diodes available in


the industry improves output and
durability.

Heavy duty bearing design for


maximum load durability.

Long life flex lead bridge designed


to withstand severe vibration.

Air flow vents are strategically located


throughout the unit for optimum cooling in
high temperature under-hood engine
environments.

Enhanced field coil design improves efficiency and reduces


overall operating temperature for greater reliability when used
in the presence of the high under-hood engine temperatures
found on todays trucks.

Competitive Comparison

Winning The Fuel Economy Game

There are a number of different ways to compare alternators. But the most important one
might just be operating efficiency. Thats because it takes horsepower to turn an alternator,
horsepower thats generated by fuel. When it
takes less horsepower to turn the alternator,
more horsepower is left to turn the drive train
... and that translates directly into better fuel
mileage. So how much fuel can an efficient alternator save?
We were afraid youd never ask.

Adding Up The Savings


To calculate how much you can save with the
new Delco Remy 36SI, its necessary to make a
couple of assumptions. The following scenario
is realistic for many fleets.
Based on a fuel cost of $3.00/gallon, 40% engine efficiency, 14V, 75C inlet air temperature
and 38 MPH overall average speed, the cost of
driving 100,000 miles in a truck running with a
60 amp load and a Delco Remy 36SI alternator
would be $80 less than the same truck using a
Denso 130A alternator. If the load were increased to 80 amps, the difference would be
even more dramatic: $125 for every 100,000
miles driven.
