InPower highlights start/stop control module for diesel GM, Navistar CV trucks

InPower has developed the SS-GM-02, a Start/Stop High Idle Control Module for chassis engine control in 2019 and newer General Motors C2500 to C6500 and Navistar CV vehicles equipped with diesel engines. These vehicles must have the factory-installed power takeoff (PTO) option with the remote PTO controls enabled (requires GM Techtool).

In addition to start/stop control of the GM chassis, the SS-GM-02 offers two selectable high idle RPM inputs via the SS-GM-02 (programmed by GM Techtool), and an additional Standby Idle (default is 950 RPM) from the PTO controller itself. It also can provide a wide variety of programmable and configurable options with custom controls that meet specific application requirements, such as dual voltage monitoring.

“Along with providing a clean and reliable start/stop/high idle interface, the SS-GM-02 can be readily customized,” said Sullivan. “Since every application is different, we encourage customers to contact us for assistance in fully defining the specific types of control they need.”

The SS-GM-02 module is easy to install and compact with a frame rail mountable case, the company noted. It’s also designed to be waterproof to IP66, dust proof and hard-spray-resistant.
