Message from Keith Dolbear
It is bauma time again and let's hope that we do not get another Icelandic
ash cloud or anything else like it this time! As usual, TriMark Europe
will have a stand and we hope to welcome many of our friends and customers
to see us at A5.511. Those who do not know bauma, will not realise how big
this construction and mining equipment show is! It is quite remarkable and
is open from Monday 15th until Sunday 21st April. You can find more
information at http://www.bauma.de/en.
We will be showing a wide range of
products including our KeyOne Plus single key locking system, which allows
a wide range of flexible key options throughout the whole vehicle. We are
also launching two new products for compartments in the off-road sector and
we will be pleased to show these to our visitors. We will also be
demonstrating our wide range of ‘mechatronic' components and systems
branded as e-ASK (Electronic Access and Security Keyless-entry).
I mentioned in the last newsletter that this is a busy year with tradeshows
for TriMark Europe. In February, we were part of the bCIndia
exhibition in Mumbai. The b stands for bauma so it is not hard to work out
that this event was focused on construction equipment. We were very pleased
with this event and it was good to meet with many of our customers that up
to then had been contacts by phone or email as well as the many new
contacts that stopped by. In addition to enjoying some sunshine, it was
very exciting to see how fast things have changed in India. It has been a
few years since I attended such an exhibition in India and I was amazed how
much the quality and specification of the machinery has progressed. I
suppose I should not have been so surprised, as I had already seen the same
thing happen in China.
Next in line is PlantworX,
between 14th and 16th of May and TriMark is delighted to be part of
the Security Village. This is a show aimed at demonstrating construction
equipment and is close to my heart, as it is being organised by the
Construction Equipment Association (CEA) of which I am pleased to be on the
Management Council for this excellent organisation. The show is being held
at Stoneleigh and those of you in the UK will remember that this is where
the ‘Royal Show' (agricultural) used to be held. I know that Rob Oliver and
his team are setting up a lot interesting events around the Security
Village and we are very proud to be part of this. Again we hope to see many
of you at this event too.
We round off the year with DSEI
which is held in London at the ExCel Centre from 10th to 13th September 2013.
This is a show where the strength and quality of TriMark's range
comes to the fore, as it features armoured vehicles. I invite you to come
to the show and take a look at our market leading products on our stand.
As usual, we welcome feedback and suggestions for what you would like to
see in the newsletter so please feel free to drop me an email email@example.com
or give me a call on +44 (0)1530 512460.
With best wishes,
is a Leader in Providing Electronic Solutions for On and Off-Road
We all know how the application of electronics technology is changing the
way we live and work. TriMark has been one of the leaders and
innovators in using electronics as a way to provide convenience and
security to many of their access solutions.
Our ambition is to make access and use of the vehicle easier and safer
thanks to our products. Considering the needs of both the OEM's and the end
users, TriMark develops mechanical and electrical system solutions
that are useful, beneficial and add value to our customers' products. TriMark
systems are now able to communicate with common multiplexing protocols of
on and off-road vehicles as well as providing integration with vehicle
security systems. This approach promotes OEM systems integration and
ultimately creates increased productivity and an enhanced end-user
One of TriMark's strategic strengths is the ability to provide
complete door systems; our keyless access control system adds a further
dimension of functionality, convenience and security to our systems. This
selection of compatible components allows for complete keyless entry for on
or off-highway vehicle applications. Our product platforms range from
latches, handles and linkages for mechanical products and RF transmitter
FOBs, keypads, I/O modules, power lock actuators and a wide variety of
accessories for electronic products.
If security, safety and convenience are three of the major attributes your
customers' demand, then TriMark is the answer. Full functionality
and state-of-the-art design and manufacturing means you can depend on TriMark
electronics to be working many years down the road.
In a recent survey 70% of the respondents felt that, "security of the
equipment was very or extremely important when considering purchasing
equipment and 38% rated the importance of electronic entry access very or
extremely important." Whether in off-road or on-road configurations,
security is fast becoming an issue with more expensive electronics in the
cab as well as a deterrent to vehicle theft.
If you've ever stood next to a large piece of equipment you realize almost
immediately that just entering and exiting the equipment can present
challenges and safety concerns. If a door can be opened remotely then the
operator has both hands free to make a safe transition from the ground to
the cab. Also, activation of the equipment lights can provide a safe path
for an operator to approach the equipment when it is parked on rough
The automotive industry really sets the pace when it comes to the use of
keyless entry systems and other electronics. When the operator of a large
truck or piece of construction equipment is comfortable in the work
environment they are going to approach their task with a more positive
attitude which makes them more productive.
Several options are available for e-FOB's that are compatible with
most TriMark e-ASK keyless entry systems:
priced 2 button FOB and 2 button wall-mount provides freedom and
convenience of placement for remote
Button key head FOB packages the ignition key inside the FOB for
Button FOB is available in a standard and a cargo mode to allow for
either traditional automotive features or independent control of main
entrance or compartment doors. A sustained mode is also available that
provides a continuous output control for various auxiliary functions.
security – code hopping technology offers reliable radio frequency
(RF) transmission and is FCC-Part 15 certified
TriMark's user-friendly keypad systems provide visual, audible and
touch feedback. Keypads can be mounted horizontally, vertically, and with
means to protect against vandalism and other tampering. This integrated
system offers increased security, convenience and functionality with
reduced system installation complexity and lower installation costs.
Engine Immobiliser – Stop Machine Theft
The theft of off-road vehicles is
becoming an increasing problem as professional thieves have turned their
attention to this sector as passenger car have become increasingly
difficult to steal. This presents an increasing threat to the owners and
users of equipment as stolen equipment, at the very least, translates into
lost productivity. If the owner wants to protect the investment, eliminate
the high cost of theft and recovery plus realise potential insurance
savings due to increased machine security, TriMark has the perfect
solution. An illuminated weather-proof five button keypad with over 15,000
code combinations will not allow the vehicle to start unless the proper
authentication is present. This e-module communicates with the engine
control module via a CAN bus and offers the ultimate in vehicle security by
disabling the starting system. A tamper lock-out feature ensures that
thieves cannot bypass the starting system. In addition, two security system
inputs can be accommodated such as keyed ignition, keyless ignition, door
ajar, glass break or motion sensors. Other machine subsystems such as
ignition, transmission, hydraulics can be activated/deactivated to provide
flexible and comprehensive immobilisation and/or access functionality.
Used in conjunction with TriMark's Secure One locking system, you
get the ultimate in mechanical key security with the added advantage of the
electronic engine immobiliser. Further integration of the TriMark e-ASK
(electronic Access Security Keyless-entry) system can provide
immobilisation via water proof (IP67) RF fobs.
This technology presents an opportunity for the vehicle OEM's to offer a
differentiated and more attractive package to the owners and users.
Upgraded complete mechatronic door systems can include other user interfaces,
such as keypads or RFID and additional security system peripherals. Kits
are available and can include handles, latches and electronic accessories
including custom wiring harnesses, relays, switches, door contacts,
actuators, mounting hardware, sirens and lighting to provide a
comprehensive electro-mechanical access solution.
Power Lock Actuators
TriMark has several high quality power door lock actuators available
with a variety of features and configurations. The actuators have been
tested and validated to meet stringent requirements thus insuring a long
life of trouble free operation.
TriMark power actuators are designed for TriMark handles and
latches designed to perform a push/pull function and they are easy to
install either by integrating mounting directly into available TriMark
latches and paddles or with universal hardware parts for flexibility. High
output versions are also available for latch actuation featuring power
