ELECTRONIC Rust Prevention Systems Australia was formed from humble beginnings in 1994, beginning manufacturing in its own factory on the Gold Coast in 1996.

Twenty years on, ERPS continues to manufacture 95 percent of its goods in-house.

Although a very different product now, with a greatly increased product range, ERPS proudly continues with all aspects of the manufacturing process from concept to design, testing and manufacturing.

While the core business is in protecting cars and four-wheel-drives from rust, systems have been built for a huge variety of equipment, including everything from grand pianos to 200-tonne mining trucks.

ERPS sells throughout Australia and continues to expand around the globe. ERPS managing director Jeff Eastwood said, “ERPS pioneered the introduction of electronic rust prevention systems in Australia.”

“In the early days, of course no one had heard of electronic rust prevention and the concept was met with some scepticism, even though the concept had been around since the early 1800s.”

Today electronic rust prevention is accepted as the norm in the motoring industry, with hundreds of thousands of systems installed in both new and used vehicles throughout the country and around the world.

THE new and exciting TravelMate range of fridge-freezers from Evakool ticks all the boxes.

Available in two styles of end opening and front opening, with three sizes in each style, all units feature a stylish cabinet with heavy-duty handles and built-in magnets to prevent rattling. The end-opening design (38, 45 and 50-litre sizes) is ideal for the back of a four-wheel-drive due to its drawer system while the front-opening TravelMate (50, 65 and 80-litre sizes) is perfect for all other applications.

Operated in fridge or freezer configuration with dairy compartment, the TravelMate provides silent, reliable and efficient operation. All models are powered by Secop (formerly Danfoss) compressors with low power draw.

Soft-touch electronic controls and a USB socket are intuitive additions. The unique lid design allows easy access because it can be opened from both ends or completely removed, while a removable basket and bright internal light improve useability.

Competitively priced with protective cover included at no extra cost, the TravelMate has a five-year warranty supported by Evakool’s nationwide service network.

MODERN life depends on electrical power and a large portion is in the form of DC electrical systems powering all types of transport, back-up, solar and emergency systems and electronics.

The majority of DC systems are powered by lead-acid batteries, and these systems rely on maximum voltage in order to achieve design efficiency, maximum fuel economy and minimum emissions.
Lead-acid batteries are the heart of DC electrical systems and as such play a vital role in how efficiently they run.

As in humans, where keeping the heart healthy means the entire system stays heathy, so it is with DC electrical systems. When the battery is clean and healthy on the inside, the system voltage is kept high and maximum efficiency is achieved. Inversely, when the battery is sick, the system voltage is low, setting off a downward spiral of downtime, maintenance and repairs.

Lead-acid batteries suffer from an inherent problem known as sulfation, which is a dense insulating barrier that forms on the battery plates as a by-product of battery usage.
Preventing and reversing sulfation is very important to both the environment and your bank balance.

The Megapulse VEE System uses pulse technology to eliminate sulfation, resulting in batteries being maintained in optimum condition and achieving maximum system voltage and service life. The VEE System has been tested (over seven years), proven and installed by Volvo, Scania and Mercedes on 115,000 new vehicles as an environmentally beneficial cost-reducing technology.
