Mustang produces all major components of an automated vehicle safety inspection system, and also supplies the overhead software to provide integrated, turnkey, automated vehicle inspection systems. Mustang’s participation in the Vehicle Emissions Testing Industry dates back to the industries beginnings in the 70′s and 80′s. Mustang pioneered the I/M 240 Chassis Dynamometer concept in cooperation with the United States EPA in the late 80′s and early 90′s, and designed and built the first I/M 240 Dynamometer in 1988. In 1996, Mustang designed and built one of the first ASM Chassis Dynamometers to receive a passing grade from California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair. Since that time, Mustang has supplied thousands of such systems to various states including CA for ASM Testing. Since 1988, Mustang has furnished over 14,000 Emissions Dynamometers to States such as AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, MA, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TX, UT, VA, DC, WA, TN, WI and IL, and has also provided equipment and emissions testing services to foreign nations such as Canada, Mexico, Australia, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, India, El Salvador, Bolivia, Bermuda, Jamaica and Egypt.
In addition to the supply of Equipment, Mustang has also supplied software, Vehicle Information Databases, Consulting, and Program Management Services. In 1999, Mustang Dynamometer was awarded a contract from the City of Memphis, TN for the supply and management of a turnkey emissions inspection program to replace the current program in place at the time, which was outdated and ineffective. During a period of 9-months, Mustang completely revamped the city’s emissions and safety inspection program, from the supply of equipment to the installation of new state-of-the-art network equipment and software. Mustang has been asked to implement similar programs in countries such as Bolivia and El Salvador. Since 2000, El Salvador has been testing all of its vehicles using Mustang Dynamometer Equipment and Software.
In addition to Emissions Testing Equipment, Mustang also supplies equipment to test brakes, alignment, suspension systems, speedometers and headlights. Mustang has furnished complete safety lanes for testing anything from consumer automobiles, motorcycles and trucks to law enforcement vehicles, taxi cabs and buses for various communities – including Dade County in Florida, the LA PD, the City of New York, Salt Lake City, and the City of San Francisco. In 2004, Mustang was awarded a sub-contact for the supply of Safety Testing Equipment in the country of India.
Mustang also offers complete Federal Test Procedure (FTP) Chassis Dynamometers (48″ roll, AC) that comply with CFR 40 as published by the EPA for the certification of automobiles for sale in the USA. Mustang can supply the dynamometer as well as the complete collection and analytical systems and integration of all subsystems for a complete, turnkey solution. In addition, Mustang has the ability to accommodate unique needs, such as extreme climate, 4 x 4 and AWD.
