Vanair Manufacturing Inc. has introduced the FST3000+ Air with fast start technology. With more than 3,000 amps of charging capabilities, the FST 3000+ Air is a unique engine starting and charging product.

The product features the Vanair super capacitor, or VSC, a 240 amp alternator, a gas fuel injected Kohler engine and up to a 24 cfm (at up to 175 psi) reciprocating two stage air compressor, enabling the operator to use a variety of air tools at the job site. A remote control panel provides a central, safe location to operate the features of the machine.

Dean Strathman, vice president, Abovedecks said, “We are very excited about the design of this product. We have developed the fastest engine starting equipment on the market today. Our carbon over nickel super capacitor, or VSC, is the fastest recharging capacitor on the market, allowing the system to jump start another piece of machinery within seconds. There isn’t any product that can recharge that quickly and then be ready to literally start another piece of heavy duty equipment instantly. Combine this technology, along with our core products, like our air compressors and generators, and you have another fantastic mobile power solution.”

The FST300+ Air can be equipped with either a 12 or 12/24 volt engine start and battery charge capability. Comprehensive safety features are abundant, and include reverse polarity and short circuit lockout protection, connection faults, as well as voltage protection. Low oil pressure and engine over temperature shutdown also are included.

“The safety mechanisms built into the machine are cutting edge, and more advanced than anything offered to date in the marketplace. Combining the VSC capacitor, along with our alternator, gives us longer power durations to turn over a variety of heavy equipment, even from a completely dead battery,” Kai Justice, lead product engineer, said.

The FST fast start technology is available without an air compressor.

“The FST3000 is the only system on the market geared exclusively to starting equipment and not just charging batteries,” said Ralph Kokot, CEO of Vanair Manufacturing.
