Delphi Announces New Advanced Digital Tachograph for Commercial Fleets


Working with EFKON, Delphi introduces a technologically advanced product

PARIS, France — Delphi, which has its sights on becoming a major player in the digital tachograph market, is introducing a revolutionary new product, the EFAS 3, at Equip’Auto. Launched in partnership with EFKON, a world leader in intelligent transportation systems, this digital tachograph sets new standards by providing both drivers and fleet managers with a technically superior product that meets the requirements of the European legislation, while offering an extremely efficient and user friendly system.

“The mandatory requirement for digital tachographs, coupled with a rapidly expanding commercial vehicle parc, presents a significant opportunity for Delphi,” comments Mike Rayne, Vice President Global Diesel Aftermarket. “By partnering with EFKON we are now able to offer a truly world class product that exceeds customer’s expectations. This combined with our expertise in training, technical support and diagnostics will ensure we are well placed to capitalize on the digital tachograph market.”

The Delphi EFAS 3 has been designed with the driver and fleet manager at the forefront. Firstly, it supports rapid printing, read-out and data download. Current systems can take up to 30 minutes to download 90 days of data from the tachograph unit. The EFAS 3 from Delphi will download this data in only 60 seconds offering significant cost, time and resource savings for the fleet manager. An exceptionally simple menu structure has been designed to facilitate driver operation. Individual menu items are shown as floating text on the display improving visibility and system navigation. And finally, the EFAS printer module has been designed for effortless servicing. The printer unit pulls out at the front for quick and easy exchange without having to dismantle the unit. This means it is not necessary to recalibrate the tachograph if it is replaced. Combined, these features offer a significantly enhanced experience for both the driver and fleet.

The EFAS 3 consists of the control device with a two-line LCD display, two slots for the driver and co-driver smartcards, a front-mounted interface for calibration and downloading, a daily kilometre counter, a precise real time clock with automatic daylight saving adjustment, a removable printer module and 6 easy to use operating keys. It can be installed to a standard-sized stereo slot and is available in 22 languages, with automatic detection of the cardholder’s national language. Warning alerts can be emitted optically and acoustically, if desired.
