Information recording

The records can be later reviewed. After the memory playback of the data recorded, alcohol problems having drivers can be identified, also attempts for “fraud” or disconnect alcohol tester / bypass cases. Dräger Interlock 5000 has memory of 30,000 events, Dräger Interlock 7000 – has memory of 500,000 events.

Installation and how it works

The devices are installed by the manufacturer’s authorized representatives or as agreed with a customer – by another customer’s specified professionals. Dräger Interlock is alcohol tester with automatic vehicle engine blocking system. The driver must perform a sobriety test before starting engine of the vehicle. If the alcohol concentration exceeds a predetermined threshold, the engine is blocked and would not allow to start the vehicle. In order to ensure that vehicles continue to drive only sober persons, during random time intervals additional tests are required, e.g. the first additional driver sobriety test must be performed 10 minutes after the test. It is required to carry out the test on random intervals, however, at least once in an hour (time intervals can be configured as required).

In case alcohol concentration exceeds a predetermined threshold, the system would not block the engine immediately, however, the offense is recorded to the memory and it is possible to take additional actions, such as activation of vehicle’s hazard lights, horn, or other equipment connected to the Dräger Interlock device (SMS sending, or interface with TrackingMAP system and data output).
