Safety cut-out


Cheshire-based MP Safety Systems has developed a retrofittable start-up control system. Vehicle Start-Up was developed for large diesel plant as a safety measure, since it cuts the machine out if unattended for more than two minutes. It requires the entry of a code before the machine can be started. The automatic cut-out can make substantial savings in fuel costs by cutting idle time, which can be anything up to a third of operating time.
