Military alternators

Our military alternators were originally designed in the 1980s to meet the joint requirements of the Australian, British, Canadian and US defence forces. A rigorous modification and improvement program has seen enhanced reliability of the units since the original design, including modification for commercial applications. Our range of military alternator products includes:

  • 28 Volt, 100 Amp inductor alternator

The military alternators and components are manufactured to high quality specifications and standards that meet military requirements for performance and reliability.

  • Large vehicle manufacturers (Trucks, buses, agricultural and mining machines)
  • Auto electrical wholesalers/repairers

Key monitor systems

Our key monitors systems products are designed to suit a wide variety of organisations, including government departments, prisons, and military installations. The key monitor systems incorporate an easy-to-use, wall mounted system that offers total control and complete management of keys and their use.

Only keys programmed as available to that user are shown on the Key Monitor touch screen for release. All other keys are electronically held within the cabinet.

Keys may be individually timed and alarmed, ensuring attention is drawn to keys not removed or returned at a designated time.
