About Smart Power – hydraulic generators
Smart Power Systems began making hydraulic generators for the fire industry in 1995. Initial systems were open-framed basic systems ranging from 5.5kW to 10kW.
2001 – Smartpower introduced the Top Mount series, specifically designed to be mounted on the top of a vehicle. This innovative design remains a Smart Power staple today.
2003 – All Smart Power Systems went to electronic control. Bringing Nartron’s high technology and electronic sense and control system background to the hydraulic generators introduced new features to the industry that are still unmatched today.
2004 – The ER Series was released, replacing the dated open frame systems, providing superior protection from extreme operation environments and increased cooling capability.
2005 – An update in electronics innovation. This time it meant providing a means to connect the generator to the vehicle multiplexing systems. SmartPower‘s J1939 Multiplexing Interface Module solved this by converting our already existing electronic communications to the SAE standard J1939 coding language.
2006, – Smartpower introduced the HR Series, a replacement to the popular top mount system. The HR brought an even smaller package size, lower airflow clearance requirements, and the ability to separate the main components easily (base tray assembly, cooler box, and reservoir) for mounting in complicated applications. Other big news with the HR release was the 20kW, 25kW, and 30kW models. You can mount these generators in the tightest out-of-the-way locations that exist in any truck.
2009 – Announced the release of the Liberator Series generator, a patented new system integrating our industry-leading hydraulic generators with a rescue tool pump system from XRT Power Systems, in one compact assembly. The XRT pumps can run any current hydraulic rescue tools and directly coupled to our heavy-duty hydraulic system. The Liberator is available with 10kW, 15kW, or 20kW of electrical output and running up to 4 hydraulic tool circuits at the same time.
