Breath Interlock Device

Draeger breath interlock devices are simply the best ignition interlock products. This unit will cause you the least trouble and embarrassment of all available commercial solutions. Breath interlock devices are a breathalyzer device, installed on a motor vehicle's dashboard. Before the vehicle's motor can be started, the driver first must exhale into the device. If the resultant breath-alcohol concentration analyzed result is greater than the programmed blood alcohol concentration—usually 0.02% or 0.04%, the device prevents the engine from being started.


Modern ignition systems use an ethanol-specific fuel cell for a sensor. A fuel cell sensor is an electrochemical device in which alcohol undergoes a chemical oxidation reaction at a catalytic electrode surface (platinum) to generate an electric current. This current is then measured and converted to an alcohol equivalent reading. Although fuel cell technology is not as accurate or reliable as infrared spectroscopy technology used in evidentiary breathalyzers, they are cheaper and tend to be more specific for alcohol.

This record, or log, is printed out or downloaded each time the device's sensors are calibrated, commonly at 30-day intervals. Authorities may require periodic review of the log. If violations are detected, then additional sanctions can be implemented. Periodic calibration is performed using either a pressurized alcohol–gas mixture at a known alcohol concentration, or with an alcohol wet bath arrangement that contains a known alcohol solution. The costs of installation, maintenance and calibration are generally paid by the offender, and are approximately $65 per month, not including tax. Most U.S. states now permit judges to order the installation of an IID as a condition of probation; for repeat offenders, and for first offenders in California, installation may be mandated by law.
