Key Features of Portector®

Permanent protection against unauthorised communication to the OBD port

Once installed the system is permanently armed and is provided with two short range transponder OBD port authorisation cards, that are registered to the owner. When authorised access is required to the vehicle’s diagnostic system, for example the vehicle is going in for servicing, just present the technician with a card.

Standard Features Include

  • Dedicated OBD Port Protection
  • Thatcham Quality Assured (Certificate Number TQA511)
  • 2x OBD Port Authorisation Cards
  • No hard wiring/cutting in required during installation
  • Registration on The ISR®
  • 36 month warranty
  • No subscription or ongoing costs

No daily interaction and Easy operation

The only time the system will be required to be disarmed is during authorised service and maintenance. It requires no daily interaction or operation.

  • Disarm

    Swipe the obd port authorisation card across the LED rocker switch. Once the LED turns off, flick the switch to disarm the system.

  • Arming

    The system is instantly rearmed when the switch is pressed again. The LED will flash 30 seconds after the system is armed.

  • Failsafe

    As a failsafe, the Portector will automatically arm itself after a set time period if the switch has not been reset.

No hard wiring, thus not invalidating vehicle warranty

The obd Portector is integrated into the vehicle by way of extending the OBD port and bonding to the vehicles existing components. This ensures that during installation, no cuts are made into the existing vehicles architecture which may cause issues elsewhere on the vehicle and can impact on any warranty claims.
By using only automotive grade wiring and components, there is no adverse impact on the vehicle by having an obd Portector installed.

Works with plug-in telematics systems

With an increase in the adoption of plug-in telematics devices, by design, the intelligent protection offered by Portector, allows for the use of the majority of these devices (self-calibrating devices only, those plug-in telematics devices requiring information through the OBD port will require an additional wiring harness – sold separately), whilst protecting the vehicle by disabling all CANBUS protocols.

Secure Registration through The International Security Register
(The ISR®) with no ongoing costs

Following installation the unit serial number (which is identical to that uniquely printed on the authorisation card), vehicle and ownership details are securely registered on The ISR® . By partnering with The ISR® we can ensure total safety of this information and further integrity of the system. In the event of loss of a card, only authorisation for a replacement can be given from them, once their strict authorisation protocols have been met.

Unique unit serial number

Every Portector system has a unique serial number. This is also printed on the authorisation cards. By assigning an individual number it ensures full traceability from manufacturer to installation. The unique unit serial number is pre-registered at The ISR along with the unit override code.

5 digit secure override code

On commissioning and testing of each Portector, the system generates a random 5-digit bypass code. This code is recorded at the factory against the unique unit serial number and recorded on The ISR®.

This code is required to temporarily disarm Portector in the event of an emergency (when a card is not available and access is required and authorised by the registered owner) or to initiate the system into learn mode, whereby new Authorisation cards can be programmed and existing/lost cards are deleted.

Only by satisfying the strict protocols that are in place at The ISR ® can any information on this code be provided.

Loss/replacement authorisation cards

For a small service cost, in the event of loss of card(s) an engineer will attend. On this visit they will program the new card(s) into the system and during this process, all previous authorisation cards are deleted (if you have any old cards, these can be reprogrammed at this time). In addition, a new 5-digit bypass code is generated and is then automatically updated on the ISR®. This ensures Portector offers a lifetime of obd port protection for a vehicle.

Alternatively, this process can be provided with step by step instructions for you to follow or give to your trusted service centre or installer.

Bespoke branding available on OBD port authorisation cards

The obd Portector can supplied with a bespoke customer communication on the OBD port authorisation card. This offers a lifetime opportunity to market to the owner of the vehicle as each serial numbered unit has the design of the card recorded against it. Should the authorisation cards be lost some years later, the original design will be printed on the replacement service cards and the message reintroduced to the owner or new owner. This is ideal for insurers, vehicle manufacturers, independent and franchise Dealers and hire/leasing companies.
