Brake Check

The Brake Check is a compact in-vehicle brake tester that measures your vehicle’s braking performance.

How does the Brake Check work?

The Brake Check uses state of the art triaxis decelerometer sensors to measure the braking and stopping performance of all types of vehicles including cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, forklifts and more. Through an on road brake test it automatically detects the commencement of braking and its magnitude from the nominated test speed through to a complete stop.
  • Light and Compact, simple quick process to commence test
  • Manufactured and designed for a variety of global standards
  • Automatic Shut Off
  • Rechargeable lithium battery with Charging/Low Battery Indicator
  • Calibration Certificate Issued with Unit
  • Internal Self-Diagnostics
  • Wireless Infra-red Printer available
  • Metric and Imperial, %g and m/s2 Outputs available

Why use the Brake Check?

The Brake Check can accurately assess the braking efficiency of any type of vehicle and with a 3-button operation, it is easy to use with minimal training. The Brake Check forms an integral part of Roadworthiness and Safety compliance testing programs. The Brake Check provides the following information:

  • Peak Deceleration
  • Sideways Acceleration
  • Average Deceleration
  • Type of Test
    Service Brake or Handbrake
  • Stopping Distance
  • Test Speed
  • Brake Efficiency
  • Temperature

Single Sensor Trigger

The Brake Check device is triggered as soon as it senses the vehicle is decelerating. Once triggered, it will start recording information like the average rate of deceleration, the speed of the vehicle during testing, sideways acceleration, the calculated stopping distance, temperature and the vehicle’s overall braking efficiency. No other sensors required.

Accessing Test Results

The test results can be viewed on the Brake Check unit itself by the inspector or user. Alternatively, results can be printed directly to a wireless printer using the onboard Infrared port.  You can also download results to your computer using the included BrakeCheck downloader software for printing and uploading to Government webportals, storage and analysis.
