An integrated, user-friendly and reliable alcohol lock based on advanced fuel cell technology.
What is unique is that the alcohol lock is integrated into the car's own electronics. The alcohol meter is wireless and heats up within ten seconds1. When it is cold (below 0°C), the remote function may have a reduced effect. In such instances, connect the alcohol meter to the alcohol lock's power cable to achieve full power. To shorten the waiting time, heating starts when the central locking is activated. When the driver blows into the wireless alcohol meter, the result is shown on the car's dashboard.
When the driver exhales, the alcohol lock will give a green light if the reading is below 0.1 promille / 0.01 BAC. If the result is above 0.1 permille / 0.01 bac but below the set promille limit (programmed at installation according to specific market requirements), the alcohol lock will display a yellow light. The car can be driven but the driver is recommended to wait for the green light. The car cannot be started if the result is above the programmed promille limit and a red light is shown.
For new markets, new alcohol limits apply, the limits for the alcohol lock are set at first calibration when the lock is also activated.
Once the engine has been stopped, it can be restarted within 30 minutes without providing a new breath sample.
There is a possibility to set a bypass function for emergency situations or if the lock unit is lost. During installation you select whether it should be possible to bypass the alcohol lock either once "single bypass" or an unlimited number of times "multiple bypass".
The cradle for the alcohol lock handset is mounted in the car's tunnel console. The cradle also acts as a charger for the device.
