People in the mining and railroad industries know that if they don't haul the goods, they don't stay in business. But the trucks and locomotives that they rely on often operate in some of the most punishing conditions, conditions where there is substantial shock and vibration as well as a dusty, gritty atmosphere.
That is why KATO™ traction alternators are the premiere choice for mine-haul trucks and locomotive applications around the globe. These traction alternators provide the power to run traction motors, which turn the vehicle's wheels.
Built smaller and lighter, KATO™ traction alternators help reduce vehicle payload. But rugged construction and superior insulation ensure they can handle bumpy, grimy conditions as well as the thermal cycling caused by the constant acceleration and deceleration mine haul trucks and locomotives must endure.
