Forklift Starters and Alternators

Forklift Starters and Alternators - The starter motor nowadays is normally either a series-parallel wound direct current electric motor that has a starter solenoid, that is similar to a relay mounted on it, or it can be a permanent-magnet composition. Once current from the starting battery is applied to the solenoid, mainly via a key-operated switch, the solenoid engages a lever that pushes out the drive pinion that is situated on the driveshaft and meshes the pinion utilizing the starter ring gear which is found on the engine flywheel.

The solenoid closes the high-current contacts for the starter motor, that starts to turn. Once the engine starts, the key operated switch is opened and a spring inside the solenoid assembly pulls the pinion gear away from the ring gear. This particular action causes the starter motor to stop. The starter's pinion is clutched to its driveshaft by an overrunning clutch. This permits the pinion to transmit drive in just one direction. Drive is transmitted in this particular method through the pinion to the flywheel ring gear. The pinion remains engaged, for example since the operator fails to release the key when the engine starts or if the solenoid remains engaged for the reason that there is a short. This causes the pinion to spin separately of its driveshaft.

The actions mentioned above will stop the engine from driving the starter. This significant step stops the starter from spinning really fast that it will fly apart. Unless adjustments were made, the sprag clutch arrangement would stop making use of the starter as a generator if it was utilized in the hybrid scheme mentioned earlier. Usually a standard starter motor is meant for intermittent use which will preclude it being utilized as a generator.

The electrical components are made to operate for more or less thirty seconds so as to avoid overheating. Overheating is caused by a slow dissipation of heat is because of ohmic losses. The electrical parts are meant to save cost and weight. This is the reason most owner's manuals utilized for automobiles suggest the driver to stop for a minimum of ten seconds right after each 10 or 15 seconds of cranking the engine, if trying to start an engine which does not turn over immediately.

In the early 1960s, this overrunning-clutch pinion arrangement was phased onto the market. Prior to that time, a Bendix drive was used. The Bendix system operates by placing the starter drive pinion on a helically cut driveshaft. As soon as the starter motor starts turning, the inertia of the drive pinion assembly enables it to ride forward on the helix, therefore engaging with the ring gear. Once the engine starts, the backdrive caused from the ring gear enables the pinion to go beyond the rotating speed of the starter. At this point, the drive pinion is forced back down the helical shaft and hence out of mesh with the ring gear.

During the 1930s, an intermediate development between the Bendix drive was developed. The overrunning-clutch design that was made and introduced in the 1960s was the Bendix Folo-Thru drive. The Folo-Thru drive consists of a latching mechanism along with a set of flyweights in the body of the drive unit. This was a lot better in view of the fact that the standard Bendix drive used in order to disengage from the ring once the engine fired, even if it did not stay running.

As soon as the starter motor is engaged and starts turning, the drive unit is forced forward on the helical shaft by inertia. It then becomes latched into the engaged position. As soon as the drive unit is spun at a speed higher than what is achieved by the starter motor itself, like for example it is backdriven by the running engine, and after that the flyweights pull outward in a radial manner. This releases the latch and allows the overdriven drive unit to become spun out of engagement, thus unwanted starter disengagement can be prevented previous to a successful engine start.
