INTERLOCK INSTALLATION & SERVICING PERTH, WA
Voltaic Auto Electrical is an installer of AJEN (Smart Start) Alcohol Interlock systems in Perth, WA.
WHAT IS AN ALCOHOL INTERLOCK?
Alcohol interlocks are electronic breath analysis devices installed in vehicles. They prevent them from being operated unless a breath sample is given for analysis by the interlock. The interlock will stop the vehicle from being started if it detects alcohol equal to or greater than the pre-set 0.02% Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit. Whilst driving, a prompt to give a randomly timed breath test will occur.
Note: Although the interlock limit is at 0.02% BAC, interlock-restricted drivers are legally required to have a zero percentage BAC when driving. This requirement will remain until you complete the Scheme.
The alcohol interlock records every breath sample provided as well as any attempt to tamper with the interlock. To monitor the separation of drink-driving behaviours, the information supplied gets analysed.
It will determine if there has been a breach.
Only devices approved by the Chief Executive Officer Department of Transport WA, can be used by an interlock-restricted driver in Western Australia.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR AN INSTALLATION OF AN INTERLOCK SYSTEM?
Installation only takes a couple of hours. We ask that clients drop their vehicle to us in the morning (from 8:30 am). A Voltaic representative will contact you when the vehicle is ready.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR AN INTERLOCK SERVICE?
Services are a “drive-in, drive-out” style service, which takes approximately 15 minutes.
