SmartStart® IIe
Locomotive Battery Saver SystemT


SmartStart® IIe is the industry-leading locomotive automatic engine start/stop system because of proven results on thousands of locomotives. With an ROI of less than 12 months, it saves railways 1.5 million gallons of fuel every month!

The KickStartT battery assist uses supercapacitor technology to offload the starting amps required from batteries to start the locomotive. This results in more reliable locomotive starts and extended battery life.

Locomotive Battery Saver SystemT has a contactor simulating a knife switch, which will open automatically after a pre-set time delay. This system prevents untimely delays caused by dead batteries and improves reliability.
