Adamson Industries Corp. now offers Havis’ Idleright vehicle idle fuel management system control module. The Idleright helps to reduce fuel consumption and engine wear.
How the Idleright works
When the vehicle is parked with engine turned off and warning lights turned on, the idle management system will allow equipment to operate under vehicle battery power alone until battery voltage drops below a user-programmable threshold, at which time it will automatically start the vehicle engine in order to recharge the battery. The vehicle will run for a pre-set (default) period of time or user programmable time sufficient to recharge the battery, and then shut off. It will continue this cycle until it is deactivated.
The device is integrated primarily with the vehicle warning light equipment, so that it can only be activated when such warning lights are powered on. It includes safety shutdown features to prevent running the vehicle engine whenever the hood is open or when the brake pedal is pressed. The idle management system will not require an external battery or other power source. All logic components are installable under the vehicle dashboard. A momentary programming switch with diagnostic indicator light is installable to allow field programming of its features as needed. The Idleright supports both gasoline and diesel vehicles with automatic transmissions.
Havis’ Idleright ranges in price depending on vehicle.
