145 Overhead Console

Overhead Switching Console

As part of Leader’s signature design, we moved the switches to overhead console. This makes it easier for the driver to remain focused on the road without having to look down to locate the appropriate switch. It frees up more space in the dash area for radios, laptops and MDT (mobile data terminals). We also added separate dual LED lights over both driver and passenger with white courtesy and red map light.

145 Electrical

Electrical System

The power distribution system has the best of both worlds. We combined individual printed circuit boards on a rail system with standard automotive relay and circuit breaker technology. You get the high reliability of printed circuit boards with the infield serviceability of readily available automotive replacement parts. We designed these circuit boards to meet stringent military specifications. They have reverse polarity protection, come with built in diagnostic LED’s, and auto reset circuit breakers. The individual boards quickly snap in and out for replacement requiring no special tools. One of the most maintenance free systems on the market.

Ducted Heat and AC

Ducted Heat/AC

Leader engineered the shape of the duct to maximize even air flow and to provide you with the remarkably fast and efficient exchange of air in the patient compartment. We put the vents on the upper streetside of the full length of the vehicle near the ceiling in order to provide conditioned air directly to the patient and medics. With seven adjustable vents you will be able to put the air needed to warm up or cool down immediately.
