ELI-te™ Coupling Technology

ELI-te™ (Electronic Lock Indicator – technology enhanced) is designed for fleets looking to enhance driver coupling efficiency and safety. Red lights display to signal an unsuccessful coupling, and a successful coupling triggers white lights to illuminate the kingpin throat for easy inspection. 

ELI-te™ assists the driver with LED lights on the fifth wheel to allow for quick recognition of a successful or failed coupling attempt. Drivers no longer need to guess on the success of the couple. ELI-te™ prevents potential mistakes before they happen.

The ELI-te™ feature provides a significant advantage to fleets looking to provide their drivers with user friendly assistance that enhances coupling efficiency, driver confidence, and safety.
