Saucon Technologies contracted PIT Group (FPInnovations), a neutral testing, research, and engineering group for the North American transportation industry, to independently evaluate and verify that its ELD product was 100% compliant with FMCSA regulations. PIT Group’s rigorous tests were conducted in accordance with the test plans and procedures issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and included in the final ELD regulations. The tests included lab and bench testing, as well as a road test conducted on a motorcoach.
“Compliance is of extreme importance to our customers,” says Bill French, President of Saucon Technologies. “We were confident that we were on the right track with our interpretation of the regulations and testing of our product. However, recent announcements about the difficulties other self-certified ELD providers were experiencing with compliancy of their products encouraged us to seek additional assurance from a neutral, independent company. We always strive to offer our customers the best with our products, and we feel it is of great value that we can provide this additional safety net to them.”
Saucon would like to thank Coach USA and Coach Canada for their support in this certification process, and their donation of a coach and driver used during the road test portion. It is representative of their continued commitment to industry safety and compliance.
