At Rowland Emergency, we fully understand the impact that the vehicles have on the environment. We are doing our part to try to lessen this by providing anti-idle solutions for emergency vehicles. Ultimately, we would like to help Emergency Medical Services reach their long-term community sustainability plan aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting low-carbon transportation.
WHAT IS ANTI-IDLE TECHNOLOGY?
Anti-idle technology reduces the amount of time an engine idles. The Rowland Emergency anti-idle system is a cost effective device, designed to reduce fuel expense and carbon emissions in Emergency Response Vehicles through active monitoring of both battery capacity and vehicle ambient temperature.
ROWLAND EMERGENCY ANTI-IDLE TECHNOLOGY
The Rowland Emergency anti-idle device is a computerized monitoring system that interfaces directly with the vehicles battery and engine system. When a vehicle is placed in park, a computer actively monitors the vehicles cabin temperature and battery voltage. If the temperature and voltage are within the pre-set optimal ranges, the vehicles engine will turn off. After the engine has turned off, the computer continues its system monitoring, and once the temperature or voltage fall outside of the optimal range, the vehicles engine will turn on until the vehicle is restored to the optimal ranges.
