IPA updates trailer tester product line

IPA's #5510A-L4 Alpha MUTT trailer tester

Innovative Products of America (IPA) introduces the newest addition to the award-winning Alpha MUTT trailer tester series: the #5510A-L4 Alpha MUTT with ABS Bench-Top Model.

According to IPA, this unique design offers fleets extra flexibility with both in-shop and service-truck capabilities and is the first trailer inspection system with a built-in LiFeP04 battery for dependable and consistent testing. Each unit includes IPA’s patented diagnostic technology for remote-controlled light, air brake and ABS testing and is built with a tri-mount handle design for easy portability and versatility in or around the shop, the company says.

"Whether you need to utilize the trailer tester around the shop, secure it to the wall, or have it installed in your service-truck toolbox, this model delivers ultimate diagnostics without any compromise on ruggedness,” says Ian Vinci, president of IPA. 

The #5510A-L4 Alpha MUTT with ABS Bench-Top Model offers readouts and results for circuit status and faults, voltage, current and wattage, ABS diagnostics, air pressure readings, leakdown tests and more with full reporting capabilities when paired with IPA’s diagnostic software app and optional tablet. IPA says the built-in, lithium-iron phosphate battery is safer for users and the environment, requires little-to-no maintenance, has a longer lifespan and better charging/discharging efficiency, and is lighter in weight compared to other lithium-iron or lead acid batteries. Users can bring the tester to the trailer in any environment and expect to get 10-20 inspections per charge, the company adds.
