Ioxus announced the uSTART energy storage solution is now available for Class 7 and 8 Day Cab trucks and tractors with up to 12.0L engines.

uSTART is a smart power solution that improves starting reliability and extends battery and starter life. Installed by the OEM or as a retrofit; as a drop-in Group 31 battery replacement, uSTART provides a level of starting power not available in typical batteries, particularly in tough duty cycles or cold weather. uSTART reduces the number of batteries a truck would require throughout its service life. In addition, uSTART systems reduce stress on starters and provide jumpstart capabilities.

uSTART smart power systems are based on ultracapacitors, which are used as energy storage building blocks. The systems utilize smart power electronics to intelligently monitor, manage and control power on a vehicle’s electrical bus, minimizing cycling on the remaining batteries. uSTART also has jumpstart capabilities, which eliminates costly and time-consuming roadside service calls for engine starting issues.
