"If it's BLUE, it's safe for you."
IMAGINE THIS….. An electric vehicle is involved in an accident. A first responder won’t know is the EV is still switched-on. And the driver is still able to step on the accelerator and set the car in motion. Result, the Electric Vehicle can drive away without any warning.
The effects can be devastating…
WHAT MAKES AN ACCIDENT WITH EVS DANGEROUS?
Unlike normal cars, a Full or Hybrid Electrical Vehicle (EV) does not switch-off once the clutch is released. On top of this, you cannot hear the engine running. The engine of an electrical car will only shut-off once the impact is strong enough and the safety systems are fully working. Emergency staff is mostly not in the position to check if the EV is indeed switched-off nor have all the technical knowledge to check if all security systems have worked properly.
Due to advanced technology some electrical cars are equipped with a system that will start the car once the driver takes a seat behind the wheel. Some Full EV’s can be started without a key (this can also be a Phone, card) or even pressing the Start/Stop button. Etc.
Situations like these make it very difficult for first responders to anticipate and both quickly respond to the needs of the victim(s) and taking his own safety into account.
Also the victim can be unconsciously or unwittingly step on the accelerator while the engine is still running. The car will immediately respond without any warning. Since electrical cars are being equipped with a large torque for zero it is impossible to block the wheels. As a matter of fact, blocking the wheels will create an even more dangerous situation as this could launch the car. This can lead to dangerous situations for first responders, victim(s) and bystanders.
THE EMERGENCY PLUG
Quickly creates a safe environment for First Responders working on any type of Full and Hybrid Electric Vehicles.
The Emergency Plug (EP) is developed to prevent unpredictable vehicle movement for al Full- and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (EV’s) in emergency situations but also during regular maintenance. We guarantee a 100% coverage among all sort of EV’s that comply with the safety protocols of the R100 regulation. And we provide a continues visual feedback from the EP whether the EV is still working or not. To ensure it users safety during the entire maintenance or emergency situation. Creating a safe working environment in a short time.
- PREVENTS AN EV FROM DRIVING AWAY BY ITS OWN PROPULSION
- GIVES COLOR FEEDBACK THAT EP IS WORKING AND HAS CONNECTION
- NO OR MINIMAL WORKING TIME IN DANGER ZONE
- UNIVERSAL, FITS IN EVERY SOCKET, WORLDWIDE
- CAN BE PLUGGED AND UNPLUGGED AT ANY TIME
- ALL ELECTRIC EV SYSTEMS STAY OPERATIONAL, SUCH AS WINDOWS, SEATS AND LIGHTS
FOR ALL FIRST RESPONDERS AND TECHNICIANS
