CaPoS smart edition

Smart, reliable power.

CaPoS smart edition is mtu's capacitor power system for Series 1600, 1800 and 4000. It provides the high energy levels your heavy-duty applications crave.

mtu's CaPoS (Capacitor Power System) smart edition has been developed with heavy-duty applications in mind. It's designed to deliver the kind of high energy required by 24V DC starters during the starting sequence.
