Starter motors are used in trucks and buses to start the engine of the vehicle. In order to ensure the reliability of commercial vehicles, the engine must be safely started under all operating and environmental conditions. For this purpose, the starter motor must bring the engine up to a sufficient rotational speed within a few tenths of a second.
To start an internal combustion engine, two parallel-acting magnets of different strengths in the magnetic switch are activated via an auxiliary relay when the ignition key is turned. The magnets shift the pinion gear of the starter motor, thereby tensioning a spring in the magnetic switch. The pinion gear meshes into the flywheel of the engine and the magnetic switch closes the contact to the starter motor and starts it. The anchor of the starter motor accelerates the flywheel over a planetary gear and the pinion gear, and thus the crankshaft of the internal combustion engine, until this is running automatically and the ignition key is released.
Starter motors of the DT Spare Parts brand fulfil the high quality and safety standards of the automotive industry.
The starter motors withstand extreme climatic conditions and cover an ambient temperature range from -30°C to +60°C. To ensure a long service life and optional functioning, all components of the starter motor are manufactured from high-quality materials. Markings on the housing enable clear identification and traceability.
Damage to the pinion gear and the flywheel are thus avoided and the power of the starter motor can be optimally transmitted.
Construction of starter motors
Only highly-resilient pinion gears are used for planetary gears of the DT Spare Parts brand, thus ensuring long-term functioning of the starter motor.
