SkelStart ultracapacitor engine start module

SKELSTART MOTORENSTART MODUL

Ein starkes Modul für zuverlässige Motorenstarts für große Dieselmotoren bei allen Wetterbedingungen

Das SkelStart Motorstartmodul ist das stärkste Modul zum Starten von Motoren weltweit. Es basiert auf Skeleton Technologies' führenden SkelCap Ultrakondensatoren, die die höchste Leistungs- und Energiedichte auf dem Markt vorweisen.

Batterien sind der Hauptgrund für Motorenstartprobleme aufgrund ihrer kurzen Lebensdauer und störanfälligkeit bei extremen Wetter. SkelStart übernimmt die Arbeit, den Motor zu starten, die Batterie zu schützen und die Lebensdauer zu erhöhen.  SkelStart's effective Arbeitstemperatur reicht von -40°C bis +65°C , was es perfekt für Anwendungen in Bussen, LKW, Bahnen und schwerem Gerät macht.

SkelStart ultracapacitor module can be used for example in the following industries

Buses

  • Batteries are an unreliable at engine starting, especially at low temperatures. SkelStart provides many times the starting power compared to a battery, even at -40°C. Ideal for engine starting and start-stop applications.

Generators

  • Batteries lose their charge over time. SkelStart will provide the highest cranking current to your gensets - in any conditions.

Heavy machinery

  • Every minute counts when working with heavy machinery and with SkelStart installed, you can be sure there is no downtime because of battery or starting problems.

Maritime

  • Do you trust your batteries to start the engine when it really matters? SkelStart can save your time, money, nerves, and even your life by making sure you always get home.

Trucking

  • SkelStart delivers much higher cranking power than batteries and does it effectively even at -40°C. Install SkelStart, and you can stop worrying about what your energy consumers are doing to your batteries.

SkelStart Engine Start Module vs. Batteries

Advantages_Disadvantages

Battery lifetime increase

  • Much higher peak power than batteries can provide
  • Temperature won't affect starting power
  • Starting power even with „dead" batteries - If SkelStart's energy is used, it needs min 9V and max. 16 min to be charged from empty to full.

Battery lifetime increase

  • Starting power doesn't come directly from batteries
  • More energy stored by the end of the work day
  • Battery lifetime will be increased 1,5 - 2x

Fuel consumption decrease

  • No need for idling to charge the batteries
  • Measured example: Idling fuel consumption from 6% to 2% = 400L/year

No hassle - one time investment

  • No maintenance needed
  • Warranty 6 years
