Projecta gets a jump start with latest innovations

Towards the end of last year, Projecta, a division of Brown & Watson International, unveiled two new product offerings to the industry in the form of the IS3000 and IS5000 Jump Starters.

Building on the pre-existing INTELLI-START range made up of the IS920, IS1220, IS1400, IS1500 and IS2000 models, Projecta’s line-up is now complete.

Prior to the release of the new IS3000 and IS5000 Jump Starters, Projecta claims there wasn’t an easy or efficient means of jump-starting heavy equipment. The two new additions to the INTELLI-START range, however, solves this, according to Projecta Senior Brand Manager, James Pearson.

“The INTELLI-START Jump Starters range introduces several innovations to this product category, including Projecta’s patented Rapid Recharge Technology (RRT) which is revolutionary,” he says. “For operators who regularly call on their jump starter, RRT provides enormous efficiency by reducing the need to recharge between starts. By simply leaving the unit connected for 40 seconds once the vehicle is running, it recoups the discharge that was used during the starting process.”

This feature means that the INTELLI-START Jump Starters will then be ready to use in the next emergency without needing regular recharging.

With their easy portability, light weight (10.6kg and 13.5kg respectively) and patented RRT technology, the IS3000 and IS5000 industrial jump starters offer convenience and efficiency for users. The IS Jump Starter range also reduces the risk of being caught out without charge when going to jump start a vehicle, as recharging the trolley rigs can often be forgotten.

The jump starters, as James says, are also significantly versatile across a range of different applications and equipment such as heavy-duty trucks, tractors and agricultural equipment.

“The IS3000 and IS5000 are the perfect additions to the workshop or depot for industries such as heavy transportation, construction and agricultural sectors,” he says. “Compared to traditional trolley battery packs, it’s also extremely compact, lightweight and easy to move around.”

The IS3000 model specifically is suitable for both 12V and 24V electrical systems. It provides 1,000A clamp power for 12V systems and 850A for 24V electrical set-ups, which is enough to start petrol and diesel engines up to 12L displacement in 12V machines and all 24V engines.

The larger IS5000, on the other hand, has even greater clamp power with an impressive 1,500A in 12V electrical systems and 1,000A for 24V systems – Projecta says is sufficient to breathe life into petrol and diesel engines up to 16L capacity in equipment with 12V systems, and unlimited capacity in the case of vehicles with 24V electrics.

The two jump starters also offer ‘no battery’ operation and can jump start vehicles without a starter battery.

A key feature of the jump starters is an intuitive LCD clear colour screen, which displays information such as battery voltage and diagnostics. It also makes operation of the equipment simple with real time updates.

Both the IS3000 and IS5000 Jump Starters feature a strong exterior casing that uses a steel chassis and rubber over-moulded construction with an integrated handle and concealed cable storage.

Also ensuring reliability and safety are ‘no solder’ high current connections and solid 3mm clamp teeth, while an advanced all-in-one protection system prevents surges, short circuits and overheating in these units.

Plus, all wired connections within the jump starters are crimped and bolted to ensure maximum reliability and current output. And, when it is time to recharge the IS3000 and IS5000, this is done using the included docking station which provides hassle-free benchtop charging.

Projecta says owners can also rest easy knowing that the INTELLI-START range is equipped with premium LiFePO4 batteries, the safest lithium technology available. Additionally, the units feature an advanced, ‘all-in-one’ protection system that prevents surges, short circuits and overheating.

These latest additions to the INTELLI-START Jump Starter range are available from leading automotive and transportation outlets nationwide, and according to Projecta, are already gaining attraction in the industry.
