The g-meter is designed for statutory annual MOT Brake performance testing.
Now approved for connection to the DVSA MTS system for MOT testing.
It can also be used for statutory MOT brake performance testing of Heavy Goods Vehicles in accordance with the Goods Vehicles (Plating and Testing) Regulations 1988, as amended. The test reading is shown on a bright L ED display as Brake Efficiency in percent or the deceleration in metres per second. The electronic deceleration sensor used in g-meter gives it a number of advantages over older electronic devices and mechanical pendulums, namely:
It is self-aligning and will automatically sense the direction of travel
•Its memory can record 1 set of test results. These are retained even if the instrument is switched off
•It has an internal clock to accurately record the time and date of each test
•It measures the peak deceleration and mean deceleration
•It has a built in interface to download results to a PC
•Warnings are automatically given if the battery needs replacing or a calibration is due
•It has UKAS traceable calibration
•It will test for secondary brakes
