SENSY puts the brakes on unsafe vehicles

A platform brake tester has been developed to check the testing equipment used to assess the braking performance of vehicles at test centres.

The braking performance of trucks is critical to road safety. Road transport authorities require vans and lorries or trucks to be checked on a regular basis to ensure their roadworthiness. An important part of this check is to test just how good the brakes on commercial vehicles really are.

This bidirectional force transducer is designed to measure the horizontal and vertical reaction forces at the wheels of trucks during qualification tests of roller brake testers.
