Power InterruptEvents LogService RecallTimed-LockoutRequired CalibrationViolations ResetService Reminder Reset
A dated record of when the 12 volt power has been disconnected or interrupted. The device maintains memory through an onboard back-up lithium battery. This condition (other than Tampering) can occur when a vehicle’s battery is disconnected due to repairs or is replaced. Clients are required to provide documentation of repairs.
A built-in memory chip records all events associated with the use and /or misuse of the device. Reports are generated through a Personal Computer in a summary and complete hard-copy format.
Is a feature that will require the operator to return to the service location within a specified period of time should the device detect that the alcohol sensor may be ready to fail.
The device can be programmed to accept a breath test during specified times and otherwise remain interlocked. Restricts driving hours and allows for the device to be temporarily used as an immobilization tool.
A feature that if set will not allow a service center to reset the interlock device without first conducting a computer controlled calibration if a specified period of time has elapsed since the previous calibration.
If the pre-determined number of violations occurs during a monitoring period, an early inspection is required. Failure to report will result in immobilization of the vehicle. Violations are quickly identified and reported to the jurisdiction.
Reminds the client of a scheduled monitoring check. Failure to have the device monitored within the scheduled time period is a violation and results in a device lock-out.

Anti-circumvention

Hum ToneBypass DetectRandom RetestVehicle RestartEmergency Bypass
Requires client to deliver a hum resonance while blowing the alcohol test prior to starting the vehicle. Deters techniques utilized to mimic human breath or to absorb alcohol.
If a breath test is not passed within a prescribed period of time after the vehicle is put into the run state, the horn will begin honking until the vehicle is turned off or a breath test is successfully passed. All events are recorded. Deters hot-wiring and push-starting of vehicles.
The client is alerted and given a grace period to retest after the vehicle is put into the run state. The test can be delivered while operating the vehicle. Breath test refusal or failure is recorded and sanctions are imposed, including honking of the car’s horn. Deters drinking after completing a sober start and vehicle idling at bars.
In the event of a vehicle stall, the driver has a grace period during which the ignition can be turned off and re-engaged without having to submit an additional breath test.
If the Bypass is invoked, the client must return to the service location before the vehicle is immobilized. Proof of an emergency is forwarded directly to the referring agency. Service Centers may be pre-authorized to invoke the Emergency Bypass in the event of a device malfunction.
