Babaco's idle management module is simpe and effective. It integrates with your vehicles ignition system in minutes and monitors the vehicle to determine if the vehicle is in park with the engine on. If it is it simply turns off the engine after a predetermined time.
The module can be set in 3 increments, 1 minute, 3 minutes or 5 minutes. Before turning off the engine, the module sounds an alarm to the driver. Why is our module better and different then our competitors?
* We are not GPS based so we do not shut off the engine just because GPS tells us we did not move.
* We are not based on RPMs so once again no false and dangerous turn offs while stuck in traffic.
* Our module can be used with any GPS system via an output designed to let dispatch know the driver failed to turn the vehicle off when arriving to the stop and the idle management module had to engage.
* Our module turns off the the vehicles ignition so that third party GPS systems get an ignition off event which allows them to continue to calculate true idle times correctly without having to modify code.
