BorgWarner releases Delco Remy 38MT+, 39MT starters with Smart IMS, over-crank protection

BorgWarner has released the first applications of its combined Smart IMS (integrated magnetic switch) plus integrated over crank protection (IOCP) on its Delco Remy 38MT+ and 39MT heavy-duty gear reduction starters, used for both on- and off-highway commercial vehicles.

BorgWarner says its IOCP is a a built-in circuit breaker that protects the starter from thermal damage by monitoring the temperature and automatically resetting at a safe operating temperature as needed, while also eliminating wiring harnesses.

The Smart IMS, introduced to the aftermarket in 2017, ensures the solenoid receives the maximum available voltage by reducing voltage drop, and features six electronic functions that protect the starter from potential damage caused by operator or system errors, the company says.

The dual technologies deliver extra layers of protection across a wide range of starting conditions by reducing damage due to excessive cranking, low battery voltage cranking issues, high circuit control resistance issues, starter click-no-crank, solenoid prolonged power, overruns, pinion and ring gear teeth damage, and more. Additionally, the technology encompasses driver/system protection features, such as time-limited crank, running engine lockout and auto disengage at engine start.

BorgWarner says that the 38MT+ and 39MT Smart Starters with Smart IMS / IOCP will soon be available as an option from the factory on new truck orders from a major commercial vehicle manufacturer.

BorgWarner says its newest starters are covered by a three-year warranty coverage, adding the technology can be retrofitted. The combined solution will be available in the aftermarket in Q2 2020.
