Advanced Test Methods for Starters & Alternators and their Components

Dynamic Test Methods can improve warranty testing in the corporate remanufacturing environment or testing in the small workshop environment to give more information about the condition of alternator components prior to disassembly. An Oscilloscope can be a valuable tool that can quickly provide an indication of which components are faulty. Is the regulator functional, are the diodes OK, is the rotor producing magnetism? All of these things and more can be tested before the unit is disassembled.


A brush is a brush is a brush? Starter & Alternator brush technology, is there a difference between OE and Aftermarket grades of brushes? How does surface finish of the commutator or slip ring affect “break in” brush seating and how it affects performance and durability? 



Phillip Falk began his career in the industry working with his father and two brothers rebuilding alternators and starters. He excelled at on vehicle diagnostics. He served as the Product Development Manager at SRC Electrical (then named Megavolt) where they remanufacture rotating electrical components for AG & Construction Equipment.  Later he became a customer and user of D&V Electronics Test Equipment and in January of 2000 he joined D&V in a sales, support & product development role.
