DMS technologies


At DMS technologies we understand the difficulties of working with power in the field. Man-portable equipment is only helpful if it is usable. We will work with you to discuss, for example, what weight is acceptable, carrying arrangements and if the equipment can be housed within a trolley style case. With our extensive experience of extreme environments, we can also work with you on suitable handles, connectors and leads. The packs can be smaller with a link cable to increase overall capacity, giving the same or better performance in units which are easier to handle. Cables can be designed to store in the case, either in a recess or, where required, in a lid mounted pocket. Cases can be stackable to aid both transportation and space reduction. We are able to offer various re-charging solutions compatible with the application which can include, for example, a combination of mains voltage, on-board vehicle and photovoltaic systems.

Engine Start

DMS technologies is the original and largest UK manufacturer of engine start packs. The Red Flash range has been specifically designed for the professional user and is suitable for starting most 12V and 24V engines – automotive, aviation, marine and rail. With safety in mind, each pack incorporates many special features. A reverse polarity warning reduces the risk of damage to on-board electronics. The on/off isolator switch enables safe connection due to non-live cable clamps and also avoids unintentional short circuits. The Polyethylene case provides a lighter, more robust housing compared to metal case designs.

As the choice of the UK Military for over 12 years now, our 12V and 24V engine slave start units have proved to be robust and reliable. Used by militaries around the world, our packs have supported operations in the cold Norwegian winters and hot desert sun both in Op Telic in Iraq and Op Herrick in Afghanistan.  Used for starting a wide range of vehicles, including small and lightweight vehicles, armoured personnel carriers, battle tanks and light aircraft.
