Cantec Systems’ Cantec Can-Crank 12- and 24-V EDLC (electrochemical dual layer capacitor) capacitors can be fully recharged in less than 10 s. Models range in size to repeatedly crank 200- to 600-hp (150- to 450-kW), 8- to 18-L diesel engines and meet demand for engine cranking, accessory laden, parasitic load, cold temperature, and depleted battery vehicles in the heavy-duty off-highway industry. Features include long life in excess of 500,000 cycles; a lack of downtime and jump-start costs; rugged, noncorrosive construction; improved shock, impact, and vibration characteristics; and an operating temperature range of -45 to +50°C (-49 to +122°F).
