A Idle Mitigation System (IMS) helps overcome significant challenges in fleet management and keeps service vehicles running on fuel budget.
In-vehicle idling is quite common in the public sector. Many public workers like police, firefighters and others who manage city fleet vehicles need to operate their vehicles at idle to carry out their duties. Idling creates emissions, which become a factor as passenger vehicles, light trucks, medium-duty vehicles, and heavy-duty vehicles consume more than 6 billion gallons of fuel and gasoline without moving.
STI contribution to vehicle maintenance:
A Idle Mitigation System (IMS) eliminates extreme idling with hands-free control. The STI unknowingly turns off the engine and provides all the required power if a vehicle is idling. This technology allows full use of the vehicle’s HVAC control, providing convenient servicing even when the engine is not running. It also prevents wastage of fuel and energy as a result of engine idling. The IMS automatically manages the engine to recharge the battery required for long periods of stationary use of the vehicle. The driver only needs to press the brake pedal easily to start the engine and prepare the vehicle to go. The STI picks up the vehicle’s engine when it’s idle again, allowing drivers or public workers to think about their responsibilities without the distractions of manual idle reduction systems.
The IMS enhances the security and luxury of the driver or vehicle operator by enabling the use of HVAC and vehicle electrical components without noise or smoke. Additionally, the IMS reduces distractions by automatically sending heat, air-con, and power to equipment at rest, safe for the occupants of the vehicle.
IMS also protects the environment by reducing the fuel consumption of a vehicle while idling. For example, if you save one gallon of gasoline or one gallon of fuel while parking, you save 18.95 lbs and 22.06 lbs of CO2, respectively.Rp to be released into the environment.
And indirectly means STI also saves fuel every idle hour. During idle, the engine consumes about 1.2 gallons of diesel fuel, and using the STI reduces that to 0 gallons; this generally saves about 2-4 years.
IMS helps reduce operational costs. During one hour of idling, an engine suffers the same wear and tear as it does during 33 miles of driving. IMS extends asset life and reduces operating costs.
How STI operates the vehicle during parking:
A Idle Management System (IMS) protects the engine from unnecessary wear and tear and allows all operations in the vehicle while in the parking area.
Sufficient Power Provider for On-board Electronic Devices:
The in-vehicle STI provides enough power for all onboard electronics, including radio, lights, and HVAC, without running the armature engine.
Wide Compatibility with Chassis engines:
The STI system is usually compatible with light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty engines manufactured by large companies.
Run HVAC without Machine:
The STI allows the use of dedicated HVAC and provides vehicle heating & cooling via factory ventilation without running the engine.
Thus, IMS not only protects the vehicle but also protects the environment without compromising the comfort of the driver or the people in the vehicle. Plus, saving gallons of fuel saves money.
