Infrared motion-activated reefer dome lamp
Grote Industries’ 61F61 Infrared Motion-Activated Dome Lamp, designed to address the challenges of the reefer environment, has a rugged sealed-sensor design that blocks moisture and eliminates on-off switches. The 61F61’s passive infrared motion sensor is calibrated to recognize the human heat signature and activate the lamp when a person moves within six feet; the lamp remains on while activity is detected and stays on for three minutes following the last human motion. The energy-efficient 800-lumen 61F61 is designed to extend a vehicle’s battery life by reducing its exposure to power draws, making it a suitable choice for users that make daily multiple stops; shifting loads and falling objects will not activate the motion sensor. The lamp is made with a durable aluminum housing, a tough replaceable acrylic lens and a self-resetting internal cutoff switch to protect against excessive current.

Filter Minder’s low-vacuum sensor monitors air filter restriction for severe-duty applications, including stationary equipment. As air filter restriction increases, the sensor gives a comparable voltage output range of .5V to 4.5V full scale. The output signal is accurate within +/- 2.5% over a temperature range of -40 to 125 degrees Celsius. The sensor is reverse- and over-voltage protected, and threaded mounting ports can be supplied with 1/8-inch pipe thread,
3/8-inch straight thread or M-10 metric. The sensor is furnished with flying leads or any electrical connector.
Engineered Products Co.
ASA Electronics’ Voyager OBS713RCM Heavy Duty Blind Zone Camera System includes a 7-inch heavy-duty LCD monitor, a right-side camera, a monitor mount and 25 feet of cabling, and is designed to eliminate blind spots when backing up, changing lanes, merging and making wide right turns. The monitor – which delivers clear high-quality color images of the truck’s surrounding areas – can be activated by DC triggers such as 12V impulses, including the left/right blinkers and the reverse gear; it also features an integrated audio speaker, backlit easy-to-use controls, manual or automatic source selection, day/night brightness modes and On Screen Display (OSD) for AV source, picture adjustment and volume control. The monitor’s slimline profile provides an unobtrusive appeal for cab installation, and the anti-glare/anti-scratch protective lens keeps the monitor resilient in all conditions. The monitor, which can be paired with up to three cameras, offers 12V and 24V system compatibility, circuit protection and a sealed housing to prevent moisture and dust from penetrating the inner components and circuitry.
The sealed waterproof Voyager color right-side CMOS camera has a chrome housing, wide viewing angles – 101 degrees horizontal viewing – and CMOS technology that allows for increased picture quality, enhanced nighttime and daytime vision, and a decrease in camera size; the CMOS camera also is anti-blooming, which means direct sunlight will not wash out the images. The side camera can be installed easily with 90-degree mounting; an adjustable right-side camera also is available to accommodate for angled fenders.
Fuel injection kit
OTC Tools has compiled the Professional Master Fuel Injection Kit, a full-coverage tool set that accommodates nearly every fuel injection system application on most domestic and foreign engine platforms from 1988 to present. Components include 47 OTC fuel injection adapters, a 0-100 psi analog pressure gauge with a manifold for accurate pressure reading and basic flow testing, hose assemblies and a variety of seals, fuel lines and clamps. Quick-connect adapters use Schrader valves that prevent fuel/solvent spray, and all seals are made of Viton rubber, which resists swelling or cracking, even when exposed to ethanol-blend fuels.
The kit includes an application guide with service information and a laminated card showing color images of components, with part numbers for quick reference. A blow-molded case with a removable lid allows for convenient storage and easy access to components, yet closes tightly for safe transport of the kit. The lid can be separated easily if a technician prefers storing the trays in a tool drawer.

All-position, wide-base trailer radials
Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions’ Bridgestone-brand R197 low rolling-resistance radial is approved for use on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay-certified equipment and also is suited for fleets running California Air Resources Board-compliant vehicles. The tire, available in the 295/75R22.5 size with a G load rating, is suitable for all-position use but is designed for single- and tandem-axle trailer and dolly applications in long-haul and regional-haul service. Building on an energy-efficient casing and adding low rolling-resistance tread and sidewall compounding, the R197 combines fuel-efficient tread designs and a shallow 11/32-inch tread depth to help improve fuel economy. For long, even tread wear, the R197 incorporates the company’s Defense Groove design that helps create uniform pressure across the shoulder to minimize edge wear and cupping. Stress-relief siping along the rib edges promotes even wear for higher mileage. A classic straight-rib tread design evacuates water from the footprint for added wet traction, while cross-rib sipes provide a solid grip on wet roads. To enhance durability, the R197 incorporates tough shoulder protector ribs on both sidewalls to fight damage from cuts and abrasion from curbing; when one set of ribs is worn away, the tire can be reversed to expose a fresh set of ribs for continued protection.
BBTS’ Bridgestone-brand Greatec R125 wide-base trailer radial, designed for low rolling resistance and increased payload, also is approved for use on SmartWay-certified equipment and is suited for fleets running CARB-compliant vehicles. Greatec R125 uses several irregular-wear-fighting proprietary technologies to facilitate long, even tread life, including Bridgestone’s Equalizer Rib and Defense Groove designs. Stress-relief sipes help absorb rib stresses for even wear, while tough sidewall protector ribs on both sides help fight curbing damage to protect the casing; should the protector rib on one side wear away, the tire can be flipped over for continued protection. The Greatec R125 uses casing-saving stone rejector platforms in each tread groove to help prevent trapped stones from pushing deeper into the tread grooves and piercing the belt layer, damaging the belts and exposing them to rust.
