Challenge

A fleet in the United States was having an issue with jump starts. They noticed multiple vehicles needed to be jump started some mornings at the same time. When trucks can’t get on the road it can be costly to a fleet’s efficiency. That’s why they were looking for a jump starter that could jump start multiple vehicles without needing a lot of charge time in between.

Solution

Purkeys had the answer. Purkeys’ CAPS, or Capacitor Actuated Portable Starter, utilizes an ultra capacitor that can quickly send enough energy to jumpstart a heavy-duty vehicle, and then quickly charge after a successful start. The ultra capacitor and small, yet powerful, AGM battery, allows technicians to jump start multiple trucks in a short period of time.

The electrical experts at Purkeys developed this portable jumpstart machine to be safe and easy to use.  They also made the CAPS to be rugged, yet portable. It includes features like:

  • Vise grip clamps and flexible cables that ensure proper connection
  • Indicator lights and safety technology that alerts technicians to problems
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • A rugged, wheeled case that makes the machine portable and easy to use in tight areas

Results

The quick charge time and portability of CAPS means fleets can now get multiple trucks with discharged batteries started faster than before. Now the fleet’s trucks can get back on the road, where they belong.
