Portable brake tester provides highly accurate readings, with total reliability. Provides a hard copy record of readings.
Many heavy vehicle accidents are due to defective brakes. Using Simret regular brake testing will identify deteriorating brakes before an accident occurs but before Simret there was no reliable method to allow operators to carry out accurate tests on-site. Judging distance against marker posts is not accurate because errors in speed or when the driver applies the brakes give widely differing results.

Now the Simret 3000 brake tester solves the problem by giving an accurate printed record of brake efficiency regardless of vehicle speed, ground conditions or slope. All printouts show the time and date of the test and your plant and operator details can be added, plus hard copy evidence of the test taking place. Looking back over previous printouts of a vehicle will show deterioration in the brakes so that action can be taken before it's too late.
Simret 3000 is supplied as a complete ready to use kit which includes leather carrying case for the instrument and its accessories, a mains powered battery charger, a trigger pad and full instructions. Available as extras are the Pedal Force Transducer, PC-Link and WinSim, and bar code kit which includes wand and customised bar code tags for your plant.
