IPA Super Mutt Deluxe Trailer Tester
March 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
released the remote-controlled Super Mutt Deluxe for lights and air brakes.
Aimed at eliminating common CSA roadside violations, the Super Mutt Deluxe guides technicians through 91 points of inspection, including identifying wiring problems that are often missed during routine inspections.
The product addresses three areas of trailer inspection: light testing, ABS and air brakes. The diagnostic program identifies shorted, crossed and open circuits, differentiates between poor wire and chassis grounds, and provides amperage display, audio feedback, automatic, manual and remote control operation. The wireless remote allows technicians to apply brakes from the rear of the trailer while performing visual and mechanical inspections in real time. ABS codes can be pulled from Wabco and Bendix Tabs-6 systems through the use of the Mutt control panel.
New updates include a steel face shield, mute bypass switch, internal regulator, and side-mounted 7-way sockets.
