Wheelchair Lifts and Telematics Devices

Applies To

Wheelchair Lift Manufacturers:

  • Braun/Braunability
  • Ricon/Wabtec

Resolution

Intermotive/Interlock

  • Telematics device must be plugged into the Gateway Module (which must be purchased from Intermotive directly) otherwise the device will have to be put into Listen Only Mode (No Engine Data). You must contact your dealer/reseller for more information.

Braun/Braunability, Ricon/Wabtec, Maxon

  • Currently no gateway module exists — must keep device in Listen Only Mode (no engine data). You must contact your dealer/reseller for more information.

Cause

Essentially, these wheelchair lift brands do not work well with the telematics device or any other devices plugged into the diagnostic port in general.
