Weldon D-Tek digital technician wireless maintenance systemWeldon D-Tek digital technician wireless maintenance system allows departments to detect a vehicle’s status wirelessly. Retrieve accurate and reliable vehicle information automatically with no need to spend time manually gathering vehicle data. Each time a truck leaves the station and when it returns, D-Tek captures critical maintenance data and sends it to the receiver located on the station’s computer in less than a second. This data can be viewed to provide alerts to such things as low tire pressure, high coolant temperature, low oil levels, and so on. The captured data can be sent over the Internet from the station’s computer to a central maintenance center. Using the D-Tek Tracker software, departments can review the details of a truck in the station or view all the stations’ vehicles for an easy and convenient way to manage the entire fleet.

Streamlight SolarStream™ supplemental vehicle charging systemStreamlight SolarStream™ supplemental vehicle charging system offers a cost-effective way to keep vehicle batteries charged. The system includes a 14-watt flexible amorphous silicon solar panel with self-adhesive backing, which provides a low-rate maintenance charge to the vehicle battery during daylight hours. Panel material and design allow trickle charge in low-sun-angle and cloudy conditions. The panel helps reduce the effect of onboard computer system battery drain when the vehicle is off. Maintaining a charged battery state when the vehicle is not in use contributes to extended battery life and a reduction in automobile battery related maintenance time. It is packaged with fuse holder and fuse. The panel will continue to operate at reduced performance if panel sections are damaged.
