Pad Mount Alternators: Benefits & Advantages and Specification Proposal 2002-01-1281

The swivel-type hinge mount specified in SAE J180 has been the standard alternator mounting for many years. However, in the mid-1990's on-highway applications began to experience vibration related failures due to casting excitation. This led to the eventual development of a stationary “pad mount” system in combination with an automatic belt tensioner. This paper will review the system component life and benefits of pad mount, and proposes an industry mounting standard for further application usage.
