Features and Benefits of Idle Reduction Systems

As the cost of diesel fuel rises, running your equipment all the time just doesn’t make sense.

For example, a diesel powered light tower may not be set to run in daylight hours, however it is easy to overlook on the job site when it’s cold out and the work is done for the day. The Therma-Start™ Light Tower Runtime Controller makes sure that your units are not being run during daylight hours.

ThermaStart™ Light Tower Runtime Controller

Uses a programmable timer or photocell that regulates lighting towers to maintain optimum runtime hours. Also monitors battery condition, ambient and block temperature to ensure reliable start-ups in cold weather.

Diesel-fueled light towers can cost a small fortune to keep running and maintain. Our ThermaStart™ Light Tower Runtime Controller will dramatically reduce these costs by automatically powering down light banks on a timer, saving on fuel costs.

For Compact Equipment


ThermaStart™ Idle Reduction For Compact Equipment

Compact Equipment such as forklifts, welders, air compressors and generators are frequently left running all day in winter months. If units are shut down until needed, there is a high potential for restarting problems in cold weather.

Our ThermaStart™ idle reduction system will pay for itself over and over in fuel costs alone. In addition, the reduced carbon footprint from engine idling helps the environment by lowering emissions.
