The ACS-RS Electrolyte Idle Reduction System uses Lithium Ion Battery Technology to significantly reduce locomotive idle time while keeping most critical systems operational.

Extends the time between restarts by

  • Powering the auxiliary air compressor, minimizing restarts due to a drop in main reservoir air pressure
  • “Topping Off” the Lead Acid batteries to delay restarts that may be caused by drain from parasitic loads

Continues to power the locomotives auxiliary electrical loads, including HVAC

  • Enhances crew comfort
  • Decrease crew motivation to override the AESS, leading to a further reduction in idle time
