DVSA approved Bowmonk portable brake decelerometer for recording overall braking efficiency and the percentage of braking imbalance of the service and parking brake on all classes of motor vehicle.
The Bowmonk BrakeCheck is a fully self-contained, portable, battery-powered brake meter that can be used by workshops, government traffic authorities, testing and inspection stations, to test and report on vehicle brake efficiency.
Includes BrakeCheck, Printer and Case
The Bowmonk BrakeCheck determines braking efficiency of both the Service Brake (Foot brake) and Parking Brake by measuring deceleration.
Designed to be self-compensating, the instrument will indicate on the LED screen when it is positioned level enough to perform a brake test. All operations are performed using only three buttons on the unit. The test results can be clearly viewed on the display. You can include your company name on the top of the printouts. It can be used to test any class of vehicle, including motorcycles, and can be positioned on any flat surface in the vehicle.
The device operates on 4 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium batteries and will power-down after a period of inactivity to conserve energy.
A provision for secondary brake testing is available at no extra cost. A secondary brake is operated by partially applying the hand brake lever in the cab.
There is an option available to download the test results to a PC. The PC download software is in the form of a CD-ROM and is £89.00 + VAT. Please contact the Shop on 03717 11 11 11 for more details and quote code 6971.
Onsite Training is now available for the BrakeCheck with a Certificate of Training on completion. For more information please contact the Shop on 03717 11 11 11
