Control engine idling with Idle Guard 200

Transportation Safety Technologies has announced Idle Guard 200, a solid state, reliable timer that automatically prevents unnecessary engine idling in fleet and delivery vehicles.

 The Idle Guard 200 provides versatility allowing users to operate it on either gas or diesel engines, manual or automatic transmissions. It is triggered by either a positive or negative trigger signal from the park brake on a manual transmission or the park/neutral switch on an automatic transmission. The Idle Guard 200 is offered in three models offering engine shut off after three, five or 15 minutes by either fuel shut off with a diesel, or by the ignition with a gas engine.

 â€śSeveral states, counties and cities have implemented anti-idling regulations to address issues ranging from environmental concerns to economic costs that are associated with vehicle emissions, and fines could be levied against users in certain states,” said Fred Merritt, CEO of Transportation Safety Technologies. “Installing the Idle Guard 200 in fleet and delivery vehicles not only helps operators save fuel, but also allows them to save money on potential fines by remaining compliant with anti-idle regulations in their respective state.”

 Idling a vehicle for an hour a day can consume one gallon of gas per day, thus creating a costly problem over time. Idle Guard 200 will allow drivers to remain compliant with anti-idle regulations and is a low cost solution that is easy to install and can be retrofitted on almost any vehicle.
