The Dräger Interlock® 7000

Draeger Safety Diagnostics Inc. has been selected as the sole source for offender-paid ignition interlock service for the Tarrant County Community Supervisions and Corrections Dept. in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Draeger Safety Diagnostics Inc. (DSDI) has been selected as the sole source for offender-paid ignition interlock service for the Tarrant County Community Supervisions and Corrections Department in Fort Worth, Texas. Effective immediately, the new Draeger Interlock 7000 will be used by all offenders in Tarrant County with interlock restrictions.

The Interlock 7000 is an in-car breathalyzer that incorporates enhanced features and monitoring capabilities. It is designed to improve the experience for both the interlock user and the authorities who monitor them. The Interlock 7000 can be installed in any type of vehicle, including motorcycles.

To ensure that a sober driver is behind the wheel, the Interlock 7000 incorporates an intelligent camera that can detect a change in drivers between the initial breath alcohol test and subsequent driving. If a change is detected, an additional breath sample is required. The device captures images that enable authorities to verify who provided each sample. The new device also has the ability to identify mouth alcohol in breath samples. The Interlock 7000 incorporates advanced communication capabilities that help identify and alert the monitoring authorities of potential non-compliance.

With one of the fastest warm-up times and simple operation, the Interlock 7000 makes testing as easy and discreet as possible. Stringent quality controls ensure that Draeger’s breath alcohol detection equipment consistently delivers reliable results.

DSDI was evaluated along with other providers on five criteria including the vendor’s qualifications and experience, cost to offenders and overall approach and management of the system. The Interlock 7000 is backed by an extensive network of service centers with qualified technicians who install devices and provide support to ignition interlock users.
