BorgWarner’s Smart Integrated Magnetic Switch has been integrated into the Delco Remy Genuine Products 39MT heavy-duty starter, enabling simpler aftermarket replacement without additional wiring required.

Smart IMS is designed for Class 6-8 on-highway trucks as well as off-highway agricultural, construction, and stationary power equipment. Featuring six electronic functions, the Smart IMS protects the starter from potential damage caused by system or operator error.

As a result, the 39MT starter with Smart IMS offers a robust warranty.

“With our new Smart IMS technology, the Delco Remy branded 39MT starter now offers protection for a wide range of potentially damaging system issues, drop-in replacement plus a more robust warranty," said Randy Andis, director, commercial vehicle aftermarket, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. "Our patent-pending technology is designed to improve overall durability and reliability by specifically preventing failures caused by the system or operator. With virtually zero click-no-cranks, Smart IMS delivers added value and improved customer satisfaction."

Six functions protect the starter from potential system failures, increasing the life of the starter and engine while improving a driver’s experience, according to BorgWarner. In case of click-no-crank, an engagement monitor automatically retries the starter without operator intervention to avoid overheating the solenoid. Rapid re-engagement lockout prevents damage to the pinion and ring gear, running engine lockout averts failures from engagement with a running engine, and low-voltage lockout avoids overcranking and solenoid chatter. Time-limited crank also prevents overcranking, and auto-disengage at engine start avoids extended overruns.
