The BrakeSafe Classic is a practical, user-friendly device ideal for brake testing of fleet vehicles.
DVSA approved, the portable tester is popular with MOT test centres and is suitable for brake testing of all types of road-going vehicles (excluding vehicle classes I & II). The BrakeSafe Classic comes with its own built-in printer and has the memory capacity to store up to 50 tests complete with graphs.
Small and compact, it comes in a sturdy case with a karabiner to conveniently attach to a belt loop when not in use.
How it works
The BrakeSafe Classic can be located anywhere in the vehicle and is self-levelling, so will automatically align itself with the direction of travel of the vehicle making it quick and easy to use as it doesn’t need to be accurately aligned. This can save a lot of time if testing large volumes of vehicles in a test centre, or testing large volumes of fleet vehicles.
It accurately measures mean and peak deceleration (better than ±2 %g) and the time to stop. The BrakeSafe Classic also evaluates the test speed, stopping distance and straightness of stop – it will clearly show if a vehicle is pulling to the left or right.
To measure pedal force and delay time, the BrakeSafe Classic can be connected with a transducer to the brake pedal.
Once the test has been completed, the results will be clearly shown on the device and can be printed straight away using the inbuilt printer. All results are date- and time-stamped, and show the vehicle ID and test conditions.
The BrakesSafe Classic is equipped with a 2 GB SD memory card, as well as an internal memory of 4 MB, so data can be transferred directly from the BrakeSafe to a PC or transferred later from the card to a PC for further analysis or record keeping.
