The new 691 brake lock system from MICO Inc locks hydraulic pressure in the service brake system so a vehicle can't move. Designed to supplement a vehicle's mechanical parking brake, it automatically applies, monitors, and maintains brake-locking pressure. Compact components and weatherproof connectors simplify installation and provide flexible mounting options.

A small electrohydraulic pump and remotely located actuator (single and/or dual) apply brake-locking pressure. The electronic control module contains eight diagnostic LEDs that verify 691 component functions and simplify troubleshooting. It can mount directly to the pump with supplied bracket and fasteners.

The MICO 691 user interface mounts in the dash area to control the 691 with the flip of a switch. In place of the user interface, controls similar to those already in the dash can be used to achieve a finished OEM appearance. These systems also can be remotely controlled by switches outside the cab, or interlocked with other 12-volt systems.

The 691 system enhances vehicle-holding capability while not interfering with normal service brake function. It is available for single, dual, and antilock braking systems. For additional information, contact MICO, 1911 Lee Blvd, North Mankato MN 56003.
