Brisbane Truck Show

It was an extraordinarily successful week for our team at the Brisbane Truck Show presented by Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia.

Mining and Industrial Sales Manager Scott Montgomery explained that the team enjoyed assisting visitors with a range of enquiries including those concerned with solving their safety issues.

“The team were consistently engaged in conversations and product demonstrations which also gave us an opportunity to provide advice. One visitor had experienced an incident where the isolator had failed internally meaning his vehicle had not been properly isolated. It was still live when work had commenced. I was able to present our Hummingbird Isolation Verification Control, which creates a safer work environment by providing a simple, visual readout of the vehicle’s true isolation state, so he could be confident that these incidents can be avoided in future.”

OEM Light and Heavy Vehicle Sales Manager Sascha Heib said that REDARC's next generation Battery Master Isolation Switch (BMIS) was another popular demonstration.

“We demonstrated how the BMIS works with the Roll Over Sensor and visitors were also interested to know that it fulfils the requirements of the new Australian Dangerous Goods Standard AS2809:2020.”

Sascha explained that isolation switches are assessed as part of the full vehicle safety system under these standards, and therefore REDARC have ensured that the BMIS meets the criteria and enables the vehicles to operate safely in those conditions.

“Owners and operators of Road Tank vehicles rely upon the manufacturers of safety components like REDARC to assure compliance and reliable safety. REDARC has been working for over 30 years with the truck original equipment manufacturers, supplying products they can rely upon,” Sascha said.

The Battery Master Isolation Switch is designed to safely isolate the vehicle batteries in both 12 volt and 24 volt vehicles and will ensure reliable performance when the vehicle is operating. Designed and tested to meet stringent industry standards, the REDARC BMIS reassuringly exceeds the requirements for large diesel engines. It also features an
ISO 26262 rated dual redundancy system to avoid false triggering.

REDARC says their plans are already underway to exhibit in 2023 when it returns to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 May 2023.
