V-MUX ELECTRICAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Prefer the apparatus to be equipped with a V-MUX Multiplex System. The Manufacture of the
Multiplex system will provide at a minimum three cities of reference that have at least 10 trucks
operational for over a one year period. The Multiplex system hardware that is being put into the
apparatus of this bid will be field proven for a minimum of two years. Any multiplex system that
has less then 200 systems in vehicles with less then two years field time on the identical
hardware that will be put into the apparatus shall be excluded from this bid process. Any
Multiplex system with a warranty higher then 1% over the past 2 years will be excluded. There
are several key benefits to multiplexing, one is to reduce the number of connections in a
vehicles electrical system, because of this it is important to limit the amount of modules that
control certain functions of the vehicle, therefore wherever it is stated that an “add-on” module
will not be acceptable, there will be No Exceptions.
Outputs:
The outputs will perform all the following items without added modules to perform any of the
tasks.
    1. Load Shedding: The System will have the capability to Load Shed with 8 levels any
       output. This means we can specify which outputs (barring NFPA restrictions) we would
       like Load Shed. Level 1 12.9v, Level 2 12.5V, Level 3 - 12.1V, Level 4 - 11.7V, Level 5
       11.3V, Level 6 10.9V, Level 7 10.5, Level 8 10.1. Unlike conventional load shedding
       devices you can assign a level to any or all outputs. Load shedding will be determined at
       pre-construction. No add-on modules will be acceptable; the module with the
       outputs must perform this function.
    2. Load Sequencing: The System will be able to sequence from 0-8 levels any output.
       With 0 being no delay and 1 being a 1 second delay, 2 being a 2 second delay and so
       on. Sequencing reduces the amount of voltage spikes and drops on our vehicle, and
       can help limit damage to our charging system. Load sequencing will be determined at
       pre-construction. No add-on modules will be acceptable; the module with the
       outputs must perform this function.
    3. Output Device: The System will have solid-state output devices. Each solid-state output
       shall be a MOS-FET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor - Field Effect Transistors); MOS-FETs
       are solid-state devices with no moving parts to wear out. A typical relay when loaded to
       spec has a life of 100,000 cycles. The life of a FET is more than 100 times that of a
       relay. No add-on modules will be acceptable; the module with the outputs must
       perform this function.
    4. Flashing Outputs: The System will be able to flash any output in either A or B phase,
       and logic is used to shut down needed outputs in park, or any one of several combined
       interlocks. The flash rate can be selected at either 80, or 160 FPM. This means any light
       can be specified with a multiplex truck with no need to add flashers. Flashing outputs


RFQ (Goods and Services) No.: 1220-41-25-09                                                    74
         can also be used to warn of problems. No add-on modules will be acceptable; the
         module with the outputs must perform this function.
    5. PWM: The modules will have the ability to PWM at some outputs so that a Headlight
       PWM module is not needed. No add-on modules will be acceptable; the module
       with the outputs must perform this function.
    6. Diagnostics: An output will be able to detect either a short or open circuit. The System
       will be able report in “real time” a text based message that points the maintenance
       person to a specific output.

Inputs:
   1. The inputs will have the ability to switch by a ground or battery signal.
    2. The inputs will be filtered for noise suppression via hardware and software so that RF or
       dirty power will not trick an input into changing its status.
Automatic Climate Control:
    The Multiplex system will have the capability to provide automatic climate control, this shall
    occur by the use of PWM outputs and a Digital readout that combines other vehicle
    functions as well. The Climate control will be an integral part of the Multiplex system. No
    add-on modules will be acceptable; the module with the outputs must perform this
    function.
Auto-Throttle:
    The Multiplex system will be able to perform automatic high idle via a network gateway or by
    using an existing output on a module to provide the proper signals to an OEM Engine ECU.
    This task will be handled with existing inputs and outputs. No add-on modules will be
    acceptable; the module with the outputs must perform this function.
Displays:
    Displays will be able to provide real time information regarding Load Shedding and System
    Status, such as network traffic/errors or shorts and open circuits.
System Network:
    The Multiplex system will contain a Peer-to-Peer network. A Master Slave Type network is
    not suitable for the Fire/Rescue industry. A Peer-to-Peer network means that all the
    modules are equal on the network; a Master is not needed to tell other nodes when to talk.
System Reliability:

    The Multiplex system will be able to perform in extreme temperature conditions, from 40° to
    +85° C (-40° to +185° F.) The system will be sealed against the environment, moisture,
    humidity, salt or fluids such as diesel fuel, motor oil or brake fluid. The enclosures will be
    rugged to withstand being mounted in various locations or compartments around the
    vehicle. The modules shall be protected from over voltage and reverse polarity.
                                                                           Yes ____      No ____

2.       This Agreement may be modified only by express and specific written agreement. In the
         event of a conflict between the provisions of any documents listed below, then the
         documents shall govern and take precedence in the following order:
         (a)      these General Terms and Conditions;
         (b)      the specifications set out in Schedule A of the Request for Quotations ("RFQ");
         (c)      the RFQ;
         (d)      the Quotation; and
         (e)      other terms, if any, that are agreed to by the parties in writing.

3.       The Contractor will supply the Goods in accordance with this Agreement. The Goods
         supplied will meet the specifications set out in Schedule A of the RFQ and as described in
         the Quotation set out in Schedule C of the RFQ.
4.       The Contractor will deliver the Goods free and clear of all liens and encumbrances in the
         manner and to the destination stipulated. In the event of the Contractor's failure to meet
         this condition, the Contractor will, on written notice from the City, forthwith return all
         monies paid by the City on account of the Goods and in addition the City may by written
         notice terminate this Agreement without liability, and in such event, in addition to the
         above, the Contractor will be liable for any and all expenses or losses incurred by the City
         resulting from such failure.
PURCHASE PRICE

         The Purchase Price shall also include without limitation all costs of boxing, packing,
         crating, and loading and unloading the Goods at the prescribed destination.
TIME

6.      The Contractor acknowledges that time is of the essence with respect to the provision of
        the Services and accordingly the Contractor will provide the Services within the
        performance or completion dates or time periods (the "Time Schedule") as set out in
        this Agreement, or as otherwise agreed to in writing by the City and the Contractor. If at



RFQ (Goods and Services) No.: 1220-41-25-09                                                         88

         limitation, those described in Sections 10, 11 and 12, within 30 days of the receipt of the
         invoice, unless the parties have agreed in writing to other payment terms. The payment
         by the City of any invoice will not bind the City with respect to any subsequent payment or
         final payment and will not mean that the City has accepted that the Goods are in
         accordance with the requirements of this Agreement, or that the Contractor is in any
         manner released from its obligation to comply with this Agreement.
9.       Unless otherwise provided, all dollar amounts referred to in this Agreement are in lawful
         money of Canada.

DEFICIENCIES
10.      The City shall have a reasonable time to inspect and to accept the Goods. The City may
         reject any Goods not in accordance with this Agreement, whether due to damage resulting
         from improper packing, loading, unloading or otherwise. The City shall notify the
         Contractor of rejection of the Goods whereupon the Goods will be held subject to the
         disposition by the Contractor. Any costs or expenses incurred by the City as a result of
         the rejection of the Goods are, immediately upon written demand by the City, payable by
         the Contractor, and may be set off against any payments owing by the City to the
         Contractor.
11.      The City may hold back from payments otherwise due to the Contractor up to 150% of a
         reasonable estimate, as determined by the City, on account of deficient or defective
         materials. This holdback may be held, without interest, until replacement Goods are
         received or such deficiency or defect is remedied.

DEFAULT AND TERMINATION

         Agreement, or does not deliver the Goods by the delivery date specified in this Agreement,
         or otherwise fails to comply with the requirements of this Agreement, then:
         (a)      the City reserves the right to terminate this Agreement, in whole or in part, and in
                  the event of such termination no payment will be owing by the City on account of
                  this Agreement and the Contractor will be liable for any and all expenses or loss
                  resulting from such failure or delay and will return all monies paid by the City; or

         which, as of the date of cancellation, have not been shipped.
14.      If the Contractor becomes insolvent or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or

         its election, and without prejudice to its rights at law or in equity, terminate this Agreement.
15.      The City will not accept nor be responsible for any restocking charges for any Goods
         shipped to the City and then, for whatever reason, returned to the Contractor pursuant to

         applicable) the City determines the Goods or any part do not conform to these warranties,
         the City shall notify the Contractor within a reasonable time after such discovery, and the
         Contractor shall then promptly correct such nonconformity at the Contractor's expense.
         Goods used to correct a nonconformity shall be similarly warranted for one year from the
         date of installation. The Contractor's liability shall extend to all liabilities, losses, damages,

         warranties.

         liabilities, expenses and judgments (including all actual legal costs) by reason of any
         claim, action or litigation arising out of any alleged or actual infringement of any patent,
         copyright or trademark, foreign or domestic, relating to the Goods supplied under this
         Agreement.

         property, including loss of use, and injury to or death of any person or persons which any
         of the Indemnitees incur, suffer or are put to arising out of or in connection with any failure,
         breach or non-performance by the Contractor of any obligation of this Agreement, or any
         wrongful or negligent act or omission of the Contractor or any employee or agent of the
         Contractor.
