Kato Engineering designs and manufactures dual core alternators designed to be coupled with high speed engines for locomotives.

These dual core alternators provide traction power to wheel motors for main propulsion as well as power from the auxiliary generator for accessory power.

Enclosed in the same frame, the dual core alternator is driven off an engine flywheel via a common shaft.

This design saves space in your locomotive and negates the necessity to pull power from the front of the engine.

Also included in the main box are AC/DC rectifiers which provide DC rectification for the locomotive traction motors, and keep the width within the engine/generator skid.

Kato also offers several convenient options including optional cooling for wheel motors; as well as a Digital Voltage Regulator specifically designed for the companion generator operation.

Our dual traction generators are built to last and provide a total package to meet your locomotive power needs.
