Roller Brake Tester

Roller Brake Tester

What does a roller brake tester test?

A RBT allows for testing the performance of the brake system of a vehicle under stationary and controlled conditions. It has the capacity to show brake force for each wheel, imbalance across all axles, test emergency brakes and parking brakes and display brake force over time. It can also show ovality and warping in disc brakes.

Correct brake testing allows the technician to calculate the performance of the brakes and diagnose faults in the braking system. This means that the technician can effectively and efficiently pin-point potential faults in the braking system which would otherwise go undetected.

Potential benefits of roller brake testing

  • Brake test is conducted in a static and safe manner (independent of weather conditions) without need of long test tracks.
  • Measurements are made on EACH wheel and therefore allowing for in-depth understanding - and diagnosis of problems.
  • Test results are consistent and repeatable due to the static and controlled test environment.
  • Comprehensive storing and reporting of the brake performance results of each vehicle.
  • Statistic analysing and presentation of fleet performance.
  • Reduced component wear/failure which brings reduced cost
