PENDLETON, Ind., May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Remy International, Inc. (NASDAQ: REMY), manufacturer of Delco Remy® heavy-duty starters and alternators, as well as Remy® light-duty starters and alternators, has announced that their 38MT+heavy-duty starter is now available with Integrated Over-Crank Protection (IOCP).

"We designed the 38MT+ to give our customers an alternative that was lighter and smaller, yet delivered more power," says Randy Andis, Director of Aftermarket Operations. "This new model with Integrated Over-Crank Protection gives our customers another choice. It's all about providing the perfect starter for the application and use."

Remy introduced the 38MT+ gear reduction starter in January 2015. Designed to fit the Paccar MX 11 and 13-liter engines, the 38MT+ is 4% lighter and cranks 4% faster than the competition – significant improvements given the advanced technology that powers modern rotating electrics. Features include:

  • Integrated Over Crank Protection (IOCP) is a built-in circuit breaker that protects the starter from thermal damage and automatically resets operating temperature while eliminating the need for a wiring harness.
  • Integral Magnet Switch (IMS) reduces voltage drop and gives the solenoid maximum available voltage in any starting condition.
  • Electrical soft-start consistently and accurately engages the pinion with the ring gear, providing increased reliability.
  • Warranty options include non-IOCP model with 1-year/unlimited miles and IOCP model with 3 years/unlimited miles.

"We begin any new design based on our customers' needs and market trends," continued Andis. "The 38MT+ has been a winner for us because our customers needed a powerful, durable, efficient starter on a smaller frame. We're proud to have a solution for every major heavy-duty OE application in North America, but we still approach every challenge as a chance to innovate, with market-leading performance as our goal."
