IPA Trailer Tester Improves Inspections

Innovative Products of America (IPA) Inc. is partnering with commercial tire dealers to improve trailer inspections.

According to IPA, many tire dealers have their technicians perform commercial trailer safety inspections along with regular tire checks. IPA’s most advanced trailer tester to date, the remote-controlled Super MUTT Deluxe (P/N 9008) for lights and air brakes, offsets the time and resources needed to train technicians to inspect trailers.

Aimed at eliminating the most common Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) roadside violations, the Super MUTT Deluxe improves inspection accuracy. The CSA is a federal government initiative for improving large truck and bus safety.

The company says the Super MUTT (Mobile Universal Trailer Tester) provides a thorough and efficient inspection. By placing a load on the trailers circuitry, the tester identifies poor grounds and crossed/open/shorted circuits. Additionally, technicians can perform leak down tests, remotely apply service brakes, and activate ABS blink codes.
