Keytroller Engine-Saver Engine-Protection System Warns of Critical Issues

December 2, 2016

The Engine-Saver advanced equipment engine-protection system monitors critical engine functions and warns an operator of critical issues prior to the onset of engine damage and failure.

This compact system, Keytroller says, ensures engine protection by monitoring the equipment’s oil pressure and coolant temperature, alarming an operator visually and/or audibly of issues. If the operator does not switch off the engine within 30 seconds of alarm, the system automatically shuts down the engine for additional protection. An optional warning and engine shutdown feature is also available to prevent excess idling.

Two models are available: ES-661 detects over-heating or low oil level, and triggers an audible alarm/flashing beacon; ES-662 adds an automatic engine shutdown for excessive engine idling after a delay of 1, 2, 4, or 8 minutes. Both models require a supervisor override to reset.
