AutoStop Heavy Brake Meter

AutoStop Heavy is a portable, battery-powered in-vehicle brake performance tester that  measures average and maximum acceleration, stopping distance, test speed and pedal-force required to stop a vehicle.

It evaluates brake performance in a quick reliable manner and prints an accurate test report that complies with International Standards. An efficient diagnostic and compliance tool, designed to test service and emergency brakes of heavy and slow-moving vehicles, off-road vehicles and even forklifts used in the transport and mining industries. Equipped with a built in GPS/Glonass receiver that will provide the latitude and longitude of the position where the test was carried out.

The unit includes data logging and download to PC through USB or Bluetooth interface.

AutoStop Maxi Brake Meter measures average and peak deceleration, stopping distance, test speed and the brake pedal pressure required to stop a vehicle.

There are 4 easy testing steps with AutoStop Maxi:

Secure the AutoStop Maxi in the vehicle with its strap or optional floor-mounted magnet in a horizontal position with the lid open and facing forward. Attach the load cell to the brake pedal to test the service  brakes.

Turn on the AutoStop Maxi and enter examiner’s ID and the  vehicle’s registration number. Press Start. Accelerate the vehicle to  the required speed.

Apply the brakes by pressing your foot on the load cell attached  to the brake pedal, until the vehicle is stationary.

After the vehicle has come to a stop, the AutoStop Maxi  evaluates the brake performance and displays and prints the test results.
