Simret F2 Onboard brake tester
Simret F2 Onboard brake tester
Simret-F2 has been designed to allow drivers to test the brake performance of their vehicles or locomotives during the course of their working shift. This is done by pushing a single button while machine is stationary. A bright blue light illuminates to confirm when it is ready, and the driver then simply accelerates to the recommended test speed and applies the brakes to bring the machine to a stop. Simret-F2 automatically calculates the brake performance and will illuminate a bright green light if the brakes have passed the test or a red one if they have failed.
The pass-fail lights will remain illuminated (whenever the vehicle is running) for a preset period between 1 hour and 10 days. The driver should retest the brakes when the lights go out. Additional repeater lights can be fitted to the outside of the vehicle to indicate to management that it has been tested recently.
