DELCO-REMY generator of a small-sized series

1 – arm;
2 – stator;
3 – rotor;
4 – contact rings;
5 – fan;
6 – rectifier

On cars DELCO-REMY or BOSCH generators can be installed.

The drive of the generator is carried out by a maple belt from a pulley of a bent shaft. Cooling of the generator is carried out by the fan installed outside of the fan. In generators there is a built-in regulator of tension.

The generator carries out accumulator charging on all power setting. The generator consists of two main parts: stator and rotor. The shaft of a rotor rotates in two ball bearings in which lubricant is put on all service life of operation of the generator. Contact rings serve for transfer of current to a winding of excitement of a rotor.

The generator develops alternating current which diodes becomes straight in constant and is used for recharge of the accumulator and food of electric chains of the car.

On later models of an ustanavliv DELCO-REMY generators of a small-sized series yutsyatsya (see the drawing). These generators are installed rigidly on the engine, and adjustment of a tension of a driving belt is carried out by the automatic mechanism of a tension.
