Control Module Industries is a technology company headquartered in Enfield, Connecticut that develops and manufactures electronic and electromechanical equipment. The company produces time & attendance terminals, touch screen kiosks, TSE (truck stop electrification) systems, J1772 and ZigBee compliant EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) systems, fleet management systems, and automated parking lot gates. The company has been noted in the media for its clean technology.  
Control Module Industries under its CabAire division produces truck stop anti-idling systems. Anti-idling systems reduce the amount of DPM (Diesel Particulate Matter) emissions and diesel toxins released into the environment by allowing drivers to obtain heat, air conditioning, and electricity in their cabin without the need to idle their truck engines. It is a widely common practice for tractor trailer drivers to leave their truck engines idling to gain heat, air conditioning, and electricity during mandated rest periods. Along with anti-idling systems, the company manufactures electric vehicle supply equipment. Electric vehicle supply equipment allows a PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle), PEV (plug-in electric vehicle), EREV (extended range electric vehicle), and or BEV (battery electric vehicle) to recharge their batteries while parked.Electric vehicle service equipment will provide the power infrastructure for the oncoming generation of electric vehicles.
James (Jim) S. Bianco, the president of Control Module Industries, founded the company in 1969 to meet the data capture needs of business. Since its inception, the company has served a large number of Fortune 500 companies and has filed over 100 patents in a wide range of applications. Control Module Industries was the first to implement and market bar-code technology, secure media technology, biometric technology, radio frequency identification technology, and java programmable capability into time & attendance terminals.
The company has since evolved from its earlier beginnings into a clean technology company. Through its CabAire and EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) divisions, the company is committed to sustaining the environment by providing means of diesel emission reduction and by promoting electricity as an alternative energy source in transportation. Control Module Industries was awarded 4 million U.S. federal dollars under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and under the EPA's (Environmental Protection Agency) National Clean Diesel Program to install truck stop electrification systems in the United States.
