Miller Electric Mfg. Co.'s EnPak truck-integrated, engine-driven generator, air compressor and hydraulic pump now features a standard Auto Start/Stop functionality designed to further reduce fuel consumption, unnecessary EnPak engine idling, noise, and emissions. This functionality will also further extend EnPak’s service intervals and asset life, according to the company.
EnPak monitors air and hydraulic loads and automatically shuts down once all loads have been idle for a pre-set time. EnPak can then sense air and hydraulic loads and restart its engine when needed. The pre-set time can be controlled ranging between 2 and 30 minutes. The Auto Start/Stop function can be enabled or disabled at the operator’s preference/discretion with a button press.
Auto Start/Stop further monitors the truck battery voltage and automatically starts EnPak’s engine when it senses that charging is required. This allows operation of 12-volt accessories such as LED lights and small inverters to be run with the EnPak off.
