SmartStart is an electronic control module that controls the operation of the engine starter system. SmartStart improves the safety and security of push-button or key-switch starting systems by providing an interlocked and time limited operation of the engine starter. SmartStart controls standard aviation starter contactors and provides simple integration of control stick switch or panel mounted start switches. SmartStart includes inputs for interlock and arming switches and provides a 1 minute timer for activating the starter contactor and includes an armed LED that indicates when the engine may be started.
The SmartStart system helps avoid unintentional activation of the engine starting system. The SmartStart system is available with an optional airspeed switch that ensures in flight restarting of the engine may be accomplished at anytime without the need to press the arming button.
