Yes. Blue Ink Tech's ELDs are FMCSA registered. See https://csa.fmcsa.dot.gov/ELD/List and search for BIT to see all of our registered models.
The Blue Ink Tech App and the BIT web portal are free to use, so you can create a BIT account to try them out before you decide to buy our ELD. Download the app from Google Play or the Apple App Store and log into the web portal at blueinktech.com to see how easy it is to add or edit HOS logs.
The BIT ELD comes with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty on hardware defects. If your BIT ELD breaks or malfunctions due to a manufacturing defect within a year of the purchase date, you can return it for a free exchange.
We offer a 30-day money back guarantee, so if you decide the BIT ELD system isn't right for you or your fleet, you can return the ELD(s) for a full refund within that time period.
Yes. Track your drivers' in-state miles and fuel purchases with a BIT Full Service plan. More details are available here.
Yes, you can send data to your carrier by connecting to a wifi hotspot and sending logs at the end of your day. Keep in mind that you will need internet connectivity during roadside inspections to send your logs to the DOT email or web serer.
You can unplug the BIT ELD to free up your diagnostic port for maintenance. This will not affect the ELD or your logs. Just remember to reinstall it before you hit the road!
We stock splitter cables if you need to plug more than one device into your diagnostic port at one time, or if you don't want to bother with uninstalling your ELD every time you need to do maintenance or clear fault codes. See our Purchase page for all of our adapter cable options.
Typically you will need two sensors, one for each leveling valve. One on the drive axle and one on the trailer.
Call our sales team at 304-381-1512 to discuss your setup and whether Air Scale will work for your needs. We can fit most truck/trailer setups.
Yes, our push-to-connect tee fittings can be installed in minutes on your suspension system air lines.
No. You may need a knife or hose cutter to cut through the air hose for installation. If you need to remove the pressure sensor from the tee fitting you will need an adjustable wrench.
Air Scale needs an empty weight and a loaded weight to calculate how your truck's weight changes relative to the pressure in the airbags. Once it has these two data points, we can calculate weight from any Air Scale pressure reading.
We use the steer axle weights entered during calibration to determine current steer axle weight.
For an accurate weight, yes. If you dump the tractor air bags to take weight off the fifth wheel when you move it, you definitely need to recalibrate.
No. BIT Air Scale works in the existing Blue Ink Tech App and web portal.
We offer a 30-day money back guarantee, and you can send back your sensors for a full refund within that time period.

GPS tracking uses satellites, while cell service uses cellular towers, so losing cell service should not affect location data for IFTA or Route Maps. However, without cellular connectvity we won't be able to display your real-time location in the web portal.
