REDARC’s next generation battery master isolation switch

Published: September 15, 2020

REDARC announce the release of their next generation Battery Master Isolation Switch that meets the new Australian Dangerous Goods Standard.

Since its launch in 2016, the Australian made BMIS (Battery Master Isolation Switch) has been trusted by OE’s like Kenworth to safely isolate vehicle batteries when required while ensuring a reliable performance when the vehicle is operating.

During the development of the BMIS, it underwent extensive independent testing and validation including rugged field trials to ensure the unit could be fitted as OE equipment.

Now with the recent release of the new Australian Dangerous Goods Standard AS2809:2020, REDARC is proud to release the next generation BMIS (V2) fulfilling the requirement for a Master Isolation Switch under that standard.

The new Australian standard is referred to within the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail (ADG Code) which sets out the requirements for transporting dangerous goods by road or rail.

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia affirms that compliance to the Australian standard is required to make road tank vehicles conformant to the legislated standards.

REDARC’s Managing Director, Mr Anthony Kittel explained that isolation switches are assessed as part of the full vehicle safety system under these standards.

“The upgraded compliance of the BMIS is another example of how our design engineers strive to set the industry benchmark for innovation in electronic vehicle technology” Mr Kittel said.
