Founded by a hands-on business owner, passionate about efficiency and the power of diesel engines, BMI (Bostic Motors Inc.) has built upon its initial successes of improving the efficiency, durability and longevity of the 6.5L GM diesel engine (as used in the Military HMMWV).
BMI manufactures and distributes unique energy conserving cold weather starting products for commercial and Military use diesel engines.
In recent years the company has been primarily focused on development of our patented device, The Power Badger™.
This device conserves significant amounts of energy and measurably reduces the financial and ecological impact of operating diesel engines in cold climates. The Power Badger™ uses real-world knowledge of diesel engines and creates a plug-and –play solution that saves significant amounts of energy, pollution and fuel.
How Does It Work?
The Power Badger Has Two Modes of Operation.
The User Selects the Mode That Best Suits Their Situation/Use:
Timed Ready Mode: The user selects their desired ready time, the controller senses the outside temperature (via the external temperature sensor), then the microprocessor makes the appropriate calculation (based on a pre-programmed algorithm for the current ambient temperature) and energizes the engine heater for the calculated period of time (proceeding the user selected ready time) sufficient to start the engine. After the desired Ready Time has been reached, the unit can maintain the vehicle “ready to start” (with its patent pending Maintain After Ready feature) for up to nine hours.
Maintain Ready Mode: The controller senses the outside temperature (via the external temperature sensor), the microprocessor makes the appropriate calculation (based on a pre-programmed algorithm for the current ambient temperature) and connects and disconnects power to/from the engine heater at the appropriate duty cycle to maintain the engine sufficiently warm to start.
