In olden days the engines used to be equipped with multiple Belts, performing varied functions. However the modern vehicles are designed to function fully using just a single V-Belt. It is mostly the Poly-V Belt or also known as Alternator Belt or Serpentine Belt, which is used to power the alternator, power steering, air-conditioning, and all other accessories.
The Serpentine Belt or an Alternator Belt is either a V-Belt of a flat ribbed belt. The advancement in the technology and the rubber compounding has made the Alternator Belt as the most reliable, single element to drive all the accessories associated with the engine.
An alternator Belt may solely operate the alternator or it may also drive other components such as water pump, air compressor, air conditioning compressor and power steering pump etc.
