TST offers Idle Guard 200

Transportation Safety Technologies (TST), a division of Riverside Manufacturing, is offering the 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 with either gas or diesel engines, and 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 comes in three models providing 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.

“Several 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, chief executive officer of TST. “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. Idle Guard 200 will allow drivers to remain compliant with anti-idle regulations, is easy to install, and can be retrofitted on almost any vehicle.
