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.
