Locomotive jump starting power supplies and GPUs

Jump Starters & Safe Batteries for Locomotives

Throughout the ages, the locomotive industry has developed different types of propulsion systems. For many reasons, electric locomotives tend to be today’s preferred solution for most applications (electric motor efficiency, more power for equivalent weight and dimension, train speed capacity, lower maintenance, regenerative braking, lower noise, lower operating cost, more eco friendly). However, for low speeds, tractive effort is more important than power, so diesel engines are still competitive to pull slow freight traffic. Moreover, the level of electrification can vary tremendously between regions and far from all tracks are equipped with electric power lines. So, many diesel-powered locomotives are still out in the field, and they need batteries to run.

START PAC® engineers have developed a specific range to answer the two main diesel locomotives needs for electrical power:

LOCOMOTIVE JUMP STARTER

Railroad traffic operators want to make sure all their rolling stock will properly start and will not be stuck on tracks, disrupting the rail traffic. With START PAC® starting units, spare you the nightmare of having trains running late because the locomotive battery is not sufficiently charged or capable of starting the engine.

The START PAC® locomotive range are designed to start engines up to 6000 horse power and it is capable of answering multiple daily locomotive engine starting requirements.

SAFE & MAINTENANCE FREE RAILROAD BATTERY

Many diesel-powered locomotives out in the field are still installed with the old flooded technology batteries. This old type of batteries are much more heavy and require constant maintenance putting maintenance teams at risk by exposing them to dangerous acid when watering the batteries

With the START PAC® AGM64RR, no more maintenance issues. It will reduce operating costs and improve safety. A single AGM64RR can replace two tons of old technology wet batteries. Two AGM64RR batteries can also be installed together if greater battery capacity is desired.
