News and Announcements
Veritech is proud to announce that as of this month,
have had our stainless steel coolant level sensors installed
in over 60 transit agencies in the US and Canada. We are
currently being implemented on one of the largest CNG transit
bus fleets in the the
country and have received the
several purchase orders for implementation on a second major
California transit agency's diesel buses.
After numerous failures of coolant level sensors on their
New Flyer CNG buses following
a factory retrofit, a major
Southeastern transit agency contacted us to purchase our
stainless steel sensors
for evaluation. After a successful 3
month evaluation with no false error coding or coolant leakage,
agency implemented on their fleet of 265 CNG buses.
They have since purchased additional units to replace the OEM
plastic coolant level sensors
on their older diesel fleet.
After successful installations of our stainless steel
replacement for OEM plastic lower coolant level sensors on
New Flyer, NABI, and NOVA buses at multiple agencies around
the country, we found that Gillig buses are equipped with a
smaller surge tank with short baffles which would not
our sensor. We quickly
developed a shorter prototype in December
2015 and installed the device on a 2014 Gillig at DART in Delaware
in the first week of January. It has been operating
So many transit agencies
with Gillig fleets expressed interest in
our sensor, we did our first production run of 100 units.
To date, we have shipped over 80 units to 9 different agencies
from Pinellas Suncoast Transit in Florida to Santa Clara VTA in
California. The part number for Veritech's replacement stainless
steel lower coolant level sensor is VT220594.
This device can be
the original OEM mating receptacle or, if your
has had the most recent Cummins update, we can install
the 2 way Deutsch DT receptacle to mate with the new Deutsch
harness plug. Please email or call us
for pricing and availability.
Our second stainless steel
coolant sensor solution has
received at Maryland MTA where we have received
for a agency wide evaluation of forty of our
lower coolant sensors for the OEM plastic
sensor. After a successful 10 week prototype
at one Division garage, it was determined that
agency would go ahead with a full evaluation in an
to find a suitable replacement. This sensor has
been used on 2012, 2013, and 2014 New Flyer Buses as
well as 2013 North American Bus Industries (NABI) buses.
Inc is pleased to announce that we have received a
purchase order for 1000 pieces of our stainless steel replacement
sensor from North American Bus Industries (NABI)
to replace OEM plastic sensors on NABI buses at New Jersey
version of our sensor fits all three surge tank
styles used in NABI buses from 2008 to 2013 and comes fitted
with the proper Weatherpack receptacle to mate with the OEM
plug. Please contact us for these and any other sensor
you may have.
has been expanding it's presence in the Bus
Maintenance area in the last few years by providing custom
solutions to OEM component problems. When transit buses
out of warranty
or there is little OEM support for part issues,
Veritech can deliver retrofitting and redesign solutions, custom
cable assembly and connector kits. We can find high quality
replacements for lower performing devices installed
We recently redesigned the Water In Fuel (WIF)
sensor harness on New York City Transit's Orion VII diesel
buses to replace an OEM harness that caused problems
in over half the fleet. We received initial orders from NYCT
MTA Bus for
250 harnesses. Eventually they will be replaced
on over 900 buses. We have now been asked to build a new
adapter harness for day time running lamps on their Orion Vs.
If you have connector, cable assembly,
or other electrical part
issues which are not being addressed by the bus manufacturer,
don't hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help !
was another busy demonstration month with
visits to Roanoke, VA and Dallas/Ft Worth. The demo at Norfolk
in Roanoke, which came from a contact at the RSSI
Expo, was our largest freight rail customer demo to date. Our
unit easily scanned their grade crossing frequencies
They have requested the addition of DC sensing for the other
track circuits and we are currently investigating this upgrade.
In Dallas we did demos with Herzog Technologies, one of the
rail services contractors, on the the Denton County
Tranportation Agency commuter rail line. This
attended by Herzog people from Trinity Rail Express, Austin
Metro, DCTA, and New Mexico's Rail Runner Express.
We also did a second demo with DART to reinforce
