MOT Decelerometer Approved As Connectable Tester

October 15th, 2019 Comments off

Bowmonk BrakeCheck has been approved as a MTS CONNECTABLE DEVICE

BrakeCheck MOT Decelerometer is one of the first decelerometers to get the MTS Connectivity approval from the DVSA.

A big advantage of connected MOT equipment will be the time it saves MOT garages. Instead of a tester carrying out a test, noting down the result, then entering it manually, it will be recorded instantly.

The time saved per test won’t be massive – we think it should save you a couple of minutes per test – but when you do hundreds of tests a year, the savings will add up.

Using this equipment gives MOT garage more accurate results, direct onto the MTS System making it quicker for MOT testers and customers alike; both critical factors in our business success. Said Ian Wills, the authorised examiner designated manager (AEDM) for the site at Deptford where testing & research has taken place.

Bowmonk’s technical team have been working with the DVSA on connecting the decelerometer BrakeCheck directly to the MOT system in order to reduce errors and save time. In the long term, this will help to reduce or eliminate the number of incorrectly entered results, as well as stopping incorrectly entered vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and mileage.
