Alternate and Regenerate

  • The C-Type range from Mecc Alte will reimagine the heart of power delivery for OEMs with compact, accessible and highly configurable alternator power technology
  • The leading independent producer of alternators will launch its C-Type series as it looks set to redefine standards

Mecc Alte will unveil its next generation of alternators, the C-Type range, at this year’s Middle East Electricity taking place on 6th-8th March, in Dubai.

These latest products are part of the company’s pioneering vision and journey to reimagine and set new standards in alternator capabilities.

The C-Type series promises to offer more features and value-added performance benefits across its three core product lines with six to eight models in each, producing between 7.5kVA to 165kVA 50Hz and 9.3kVA to 200kVA in 60Hz.  

Taking cues from its 70-year Italian design heritage and harnessing customer feedback, Mecc Alte has reengineered every aspect of the alternator to create a range of highly configurable, compact and lighter products with efficient cooling and improved accessibility.

The innovative ‘plug and power’ design of the C-Type enables efficient connectivity with easy assembly, fast-link connection, integration and configuration for OEMs to keep production costs low, without compromising on power.  

The in-house design team stripped back the alternator from the ground-up and focused on introducing a new set of design and alternator performance protocols. 

Mr Mario Carraro Director from Mecc Alte said: “Power equipment manufacturers usually introduce small changes and improvements to their products over time. As an independent company we are more agile and respond to market needs for compact and more diverse power components, more quickly.

 “The alternator is the beating heart of any power unit and the C-Type range has been designed to reflect changes in future technology and design. The time was right for us to refresh our thinking, focusing on regeneration and not evolution of our products.”

The new range has taken over 12 months to develop from concept through to production, creating a highly durable, advanced technological and engineered design.

New features include specialist AVR access panels using a flip hinge for simple, safe and rapid adjustment, whilst the panel itself has been repositioned to reduce potential access problems by obstructive engine parts or brackets. This and other intelligent features will save time in production- keeping costs and stocks to a minimum and more efficient production schedules.

The new ergonomic casings of the C-Type range also include digital regulator protection to manage circuits and functionality. Alarm sensors are also integrated, and operators have clear visibility to alternator performance with connection through an interface.

The AVR dashboard reports provide real time and historical performance metrics to preserve the health of the alternator and can store data for up to 100 years.

Across the full C-Type range Mecc Alte designers have ensured that every feature and element have a purpose.

A redesigned fan with fluid cooling technology provides more efficient temperature control over longer periods; whilst the aluminium brackets and reduced length improve strength to weight ratio. This makes the C-Type compact and provides cost effective transportation and enables OEM’s to minimise canopy/base frame size and costs.

Improved connectivity is delivered via 12 leads fitted as standard, and an innovative terminal board arrangement with fast-link reconnection, that allows rapid reconnection for a multitude of voltages and a flexible stock.

With 70 years in alternator manufacturing Mr Carraro who is third generation of this family owned company reflects: “The intrinsic detailing and key design features of the C-Type range have produced a next generation range of alternators with value added benefits and ultimate peace of mind for our customers” concludes Mr Mario Carraro.
