uStart®

uSTART® is a Smart Power ultracapacitor based battery support module. uSTART® improves battery life by reducing the cycling of battery, maintaining a higher vehicle voltage during crank and under a wide range of load conditions. Using our Smart Power power electronics, the unit supplies nearly all of the cranking current during engine starts. For short stops, such as during a delivery, the uSTART® provides the energy to the electrical bus to support ancillary devices until a crank is initiated.  uSTART® stores a relatively small amount of energy compared with a battery, but it delivers engine cranking current. For more information about uSTART®, please see the Product Info.

The uSTART will turn on automatically when it sees alternator voltage for the first time.The unit will also turn itself off (go into maintenance mode) once one of the terminals are disconnected, after approximately 5 seconds. The Bluetooth app can also be used to turn the unit on ("Run" mode), off ("Maintenance" mode), or a jump start can be initiated using the app without connecting any additional wires.

 

The jump start mode will initiate a charge sequence, collecting energy from the battery. Once the uSTART is charged, the uSTART will assist the low batteries to provide the power the crank the engine.

 

The 12V uSTART is designed to work with at least one 12V battery connected in parallel, and the unit needs at least 6V to be able to turn on. Often, when installing the uSTART, one or more batteries can be removed.

 

The uSTART is designed to last 15 years, and will reduce the number of battery replacements, as well as increase the life of other electronic components in the system by increasing the voltage during the crank, and ensuring that the system sees proper voltage.
