IPA announces a new 12-Button Remote Control is now available with the Super MUTT trailer tester line.
IPA says the MUT-RM12 12-Function Remote allows complete and comprehensive trailer testing from over 200 ft. away. It allows for manual, automatic or remote testing of all electrical circuitry, air brakes, and access ABS codes. The 12-Button Remote also mirrors the onboard features of the Super MUTT making trailer testing easy, fast and thorough, the company says.
Remote-controlled testing and diagnostics allow the Super MUTT to guide a technician through 91 critical points of inspection and testing. Testing Mode assesses the trailer’s electrical circuitry to identify wiring problems often missed during routine inspections, IPA says.
If a problem is found (i.e. shorted, crossed, open circuit, or bad ground), the Super MUTT instantaneously shifts into Diagnostic/ Pulsar Mode. In the case of a short circuit, IPA says Pulsar Mode will continue to monitor circuit condition, applying current every three seconds for continued circuit testing. Once the short is found and repaired, the Pulsar feature will instantly restore current to the circuit. This makes shake testing and receptacle inspections a viable method for finding a circuitry problem, the company says.
