We fit Siemens and Stoneridge tachograph devices for drivers
Tachographs & Spec Plating
Duffy Commercials Ltd is a NSAI approved tachograph centre offering competitive prices for fitting and calibrating digital tachographs and analogue tachographs.
Tachographs became mandatory in the EU in 2006 and must be fitted to all buses and trucks. Tachographs record the amount of time drivers spend driving and resting, as well as capturing data about the vehicle.
We specialise in the installation of Siemens and Stoneridge tachograph devices for drivers who are required to record their driving times, breaks and rest periods. Other metrics such as vehicle speed and distance travelled are also measured.
Our team also offer spec plating for goods vehicles, trailers, buses and coaches, where we assign the correct weights to a particular vehicle and inscribe this information onto the authorisation plate.
Rules governing the applicable weights and dimensions for any given vehicle are set down in EU and national legislation.

Can I fit an authorisation plate or manufacturer’s plate myself?
