Superior Signals says its Safe-T-Lock STL1000 switch, a programmable code switch that prevents unauthorized use of industrial vehicles, allows plant and facility managers to input up to 99 different users/drivers to track vehicle usage. According to the company, if an accident occurs or the vehicle is damaged, the manager can identify the last operator easily; the switch also features an internal clock that records “on” hours and notifies the operator when the vehicle reaches the 250-hour mark.

The STL1000 switch is designed to allow each user to select a four- to eight-digit personal access code, and also has a separate supervisor menu for programming the unit. The switch operates in a voltage range from 9 to 120 volts and is enclosed in an IP65 rated housing; two internal LEDs indicate operational status, with red indicating “error” or “lock” mode, and green indicating the key press or touch is “active.” The unit also provides user feedback with key beep and error tones.
