Dayton-Phoenix has been building auxiliary generators for locomotive application since the late 1930s. An outstanding 50-year performance record testifies to the attention and expertise we put into each of the AC and DC generators we build.

Cast-iron end frames provide superior vibration dampening and exceptional bearing support, minimizing shaft alignment problems. Dayton-Phoenix generators contain more copper than most, so they run cooler and longer, meeting critical ambient and temperature rise specifications.

All generators are dynamometer tested under load representing "actual use" situations. Sub-assemblies are surge and ground tested to ensure that each unit meets exacting specifications. Since we build all sub-assemblies ourselves, we can ensure the quality of the finished product.

We pioneered the industrial brushless generator and developed the Rotating Rectifier Ring that makes the AC generator possible. The proven, field-tested design eliminates high-wear, high-maintenance commutators, brushes, and slip rings.
