Latest Brake Testing Equipment to keep you safe in 2023
The beginning of a New Year is a good time to reassess what’s in your toolkit and check you have everything ready for the year ahead. For anyone who works in Automotive Industry, testing equipment is a priority and in this article, we look at Workshop Pro10 designed to give vehicle’s brake performance and to keep you and others safe.
Workshop Pro 10
How does it work?
AutoTest Workshop Pro 10 with brake meter app is an easy to use electronic in-vehicle testing device, used to measure the deceleration required to stop a vehicle. The device is easy to set up, records the test GPS location and has WIFI and Bluetooth capability.
AutoTest Workshop Pro 10 (#917999) is battery-powered and comes in a sturdy case with Bluetooth printer, ideal for all industries from rugged farming to workshop environments. Able to conduct 500+ tests on a full battery charge with up to eight hours of continual use.
At the end of each test, the AutoTest Workshop Pro 10 evaluates a vehicle’s brake performance and records or prints out the results of the test for future analyses. The comprehensive report includes information on vehicle speed, deceleration, stopping distance and GPS location. The AutoTest Workshop Pro 10 can print copies out for both you and your customer, if required.
An advantage of the AutoTest Workshop Pro 10 for workshops and garages is that it reads all three specified figures, including GPS locations, average peak decelerations, stopping distances and test speeds.
You can use the tablet to take your roadworthy photos and to take screen shots of the reporting data to send directly to your state’s roadworthy authority through their app (or online portal). Download their app directly to the Workshop Pro 10.
Workshop Pro 10 can now be used in NSW.
AutoTest Workshop Pro 10 has recently been given the tick of approval by Transport for NSW. This means that this product is compliant in every state and territory of Australia to conduct brake testing.
The calibration period is 12 months. In NSW and ACT, you must send to AutoTest for calibration. For other Australian states you can use the self-calibration function. Payment to renew your license can also be made directly on the tablet.
NSW Specific Requirements
Pedal Effort Sensor Additions
For compliant brake testing in NSW and ACT, you must conduct brake testing with our Pedal Effort Sensor. It is sold as part of the Workshop Pro 10 & Pedal Kit (#915722). It’s a portable, battery-powered, in-vehicle pedal effort sensor for monitoring pedal force. The pedal mounts quickly and easily using stainless steel clips and connects with the Workshop Pro 10 via Bluetooth using our custom software. Pedal force measurements are independent of the angle of the activation force.
