MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZTR launched a modern version of the locomotive axle generator for Timken bearings last fall. The new ZTR Locomotive Axle Generator™ featured a modern, low-profile design.
“The interest in this product was immediate and generated a number of requests for a non-Timken version,” said Dave Brooks, ZTR Product Development Manager. “Given the demand we have developed a Locomotive Axle Generator for non-Timken bearings.”
Like the Timken version, the non-Timken version of the Locomotive Axle Generator is field-configurable, easy-to-install, and replaces most existing axle generators. It mounts with a typical 6 x 4.5 PCD bolt pattern. The pulse per revolution (PPR) signal is programmable so it can replace virtually any older unit. The low profile of the Axle Generator means it is less likely to get damaged from impact. The IP69K rating prevents water and oil from getting inside and freezing, increasing reliability.
