The LifeSafer FC100 ignition interlock employs “alcohol specific” technology that eliminates problems with failed tests attributable to cigarette smoke or vehicle exhaust.
The FC100 incorporates all of the important design elements of ergonomics, simplicity, reliability and specifically anti-circumvention. These features are explained below.
This technology requires the driver to deliver a hum resonance while blowing the alcohol test prior to starting the vehicle. It helps deter techniques that can mimic human breath or absorb alcohol. Remember, any tampering with the device will automatically register as a failed test.
Random or Rolling Retest
This feature is used to make sure the driver does not start drinking while driving the car or stop somewhere and leave the car idling. The client is first warned that they will be required to perform a rolling retest within six minutes. Refusing to take a rolling retest or a failure of the test will be recorded and sanctions such as honking of the car’s horn and/or flashing lights will be imposed. Sanctions do not include shutting down the car so that it will not run.
This feature allows the LifeSafer interlock device to be programmed to only allow the engine to be started during certain times. This is used if people are given certain hours that they are allowed to drive.
This feature is a built-in memory chip that records all events associated with the device. All passed and failed tests will be recorded on the memory chip.
Service Reminder Reset
This feature gives the client adequate reminders that service will be needed soon on the interlock device. Failure to get service by the specified time will result in a lockout.
This feature allows the driver a grace period if the vehicle stalls and has to be restarted outside of a designated retest time. This is a safety precaution for the driver.
Early Service Recall
Early Service Recall is a feature that informs the operator to return to the service location within a specified period of time because the alcohol sensor may be ready to fail.
