When you are under the unfortunate circumstance of being in a race car while it is on fire, the only thing you can think of is getting stopped and exiting the vehicle.
There have been many instances when fires have actually grown because of fuel pumps running and pushing fuel into the fire, sparks igniting from severed wires and various other scenarios caused by the car not being powered off during the chaotic event.
Because of these issues, a simple solution called the Fire System Electric Disconnect was crafted.
In any scenario where the on-board fire system is activated, the Fire System Electric Disconnect uses pressure from the fire system to actuate a cylinder which forces a race car’s main power switch to the off position.
With the power shut off, there is now one less variable to worry about that can contribute to a life-threatening scenario.
The Fire System Electric Disconnect is a device that should be on every race car with an on-board fire system.
