Electrical and electronics

The electrical and electronic system provides the power to start and control the engine and is made up of the starter motor, alternator, sensors and switches, and control units. Perkins specifies the starters and alternators size and format to match the engine and application, to ensure correct force and power, nose dimensions, as well as electrical voltage and current.

Genuine Perkins electronic control modules

The electronic control unit (ECU) or electronic control module (ECM) controls the performance and power of the diesel engine using a number of sensors within the engine and machine adjusting actuators and relays this to deliver the correct fuel/air mix, idle speed, pressures, wastegate control and other functions.
