Problem: Service Body Equipment not Stowed away
If the driver starts driving off with equipment on the vehicle not stowed there is a distinct possibility of this causing damage to the vehicle and at worst there is a very real danger to pedestrians and other vehicles on the road.
Examples of other equipment that can be monitored:
Tool box doors, ladders, elevated work platforms, steps, stabiliser legs
As the driver attempts to start the vehicle the Powermate will perform an automatic scan all monitored circuits to ensure they are safe and secure. If any safety hazards are detected the driver will immediately be alerted. If the driver then attempts to drive the vehicle the PowerMate will automatically cut the engine off preventing any risk of damage being done to the vehicle or any other vehicles or pedestrians while the truck is on the road.
Greatly enhanced safety to pedestrian and other vehicles on the road as well as prevention of damage to the vehicle.
