LOWELL, Ark., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Purkeys, a company focused on providing electrical solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, has developed the Capacitor Actuated Portable Stater (CAPS™) to give fleets a reliable and efficient way to jumpstart their vehicles.
It is well known that fleets perform more jumpstarts during the cold winter months. This happens because cold motors require more energy to start, and the weather can cause batteries to produce less energy.
To combat these cold weather conditions, fleets need a jumpstarter that is powerful, portable, quick, and safe. CAPS is a fleet's best solution for this issue.
CAPS is great for the cold winter months because:
Powerful - It's powered by an ultracapacitor, which supplies enough energy to jumpstart even the coldest of motors.
Quick - It has the ability to recharge from the tractor, so it can perform multiple jumpstarts consecutively.
Safe - CAPS has multiple built-in safety features, like reverse polarity detection, to keep itself, the vehicle, and the technician safe during a jumpstart.
Portable - CAPS comes in a rugged case with wheels and a handle. This helps technicians get around easier and reduce the time it takes to jumpstart multiple vehicles, which is nice in freezing temperatures.
The CAPS is a great addition to any fleet. It works well in both warm and cold weather. CAPS makes jumpstarting faster and gets vehicles back on the road quickly.
For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. They look at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically work to achieve the maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage. Their level of expertise has garnered more than 10 U.S. patents and attracted the attention of fleets, OEMs, and other industry leaders throughout North America.
