TST Unveils Touch Screen 850 System
Transportation Safety Technologies (TST) unveiled its Touch Screen 850 control system for managing a vehicle’s power distribution at the Fire Department Instructors Conference.
The Touch Screen 850 was exhibited on an ambulance built by Life Line Emergency Vehicles, which manufactures modular ambulances in straight-side and slant-side styles.
Touch Screen technology, according to TST, acts as the ambulance’s switch panel with greatly expanded functionality. Highlights of the system include customizable screens and buttons; a
Duramux electrical system; built-in LED diagnostics; Eagle Eye direct interfacing; gauges; meter style displays; and camera, GPS and DVR options. The system can consolidate and update a customer’s entire user interface into a compact, sleek design, the company said.
“The Touch Screen for Life Line is a state-of-the-art system that resulted from five years of collaboration between our companies,” said TST CEO Fred Merritt. “We are committed to continuing the development of technology that will modernize emergency vehicles.”
TST, based in Indianapolis, Ind., is considered a leader in the design and manufacture of a wide array of electronic components for the specialty vehicle industry.
