    The Benefits of a Speed Limiter

A speed limiter offers numerous advantages, whether you own a single vehicle or a fleet of hundreds. Speed limiters quickly prove their worth. In this article, we explain why and shed light on different types of speed limiters.

How Does a Speed Limiter Work?

A speed limiter is a system that restricts a vehicle’s maximum speed, ensuring the driver cannot exceed the set speed limit. We can distinguish between permanent and variable speed limiters.

Permanent or Variable Speed Limiter

With permanent speed limiters, the maximum speed is programmed during installation and cannot be altered by the driver. It can be set between 35 and 180 km/h or with the special low speed limiter between 5 and 55 km/h. On the other hand, variable speed limiters allow the driver to activate and deactivate them as needed, setting speeds between 35 km/h and the maximum restricted speed.

Operating a Variable Speed Limiter

To use variable speed limiters, a control module is placed on the steering column, allowing the driver to adjust the maximum speed as desired. The operation is straightforward: flicking the lever up or down changes the speed by one kilometer or miles per hour, while holding the lever briefly alters the speed by ten kilometers / miles per hour. If you wish to utilize both the variable and permanent limiters, it’s possible. ZEMCO speed limiters provide the option to use both types simultaneously.

A Speed Limiter Saves Fuel

Speed limiters can save you money and help you achieve your CO2 footprint objectives. When combined with a RPM limiter and an acceleration limiter, they can lead to fuel savings of up to 15%. This translates to hundreds of euros/dollars in fuel savings per vehicle per year. Simultaneously, you reduce your CO2 emissions and contribute to a greener environment.

Avoid Speeding Tickets

Receiving a speeding ticket is never pleasant, especially in a company vehicle. Speed limiters reduce the likelihood of speeding violations by you or your colleagues. They also make it much easier to practice eco-friendly driving habits.
