Truck ISO Tester Starts To Sell!

ISOCheck Re Launch & New User Guide

The ISO tester is an advanced circuit tester, it tests a trucks ISO 7638 socket, trailer susie and ABS/EBS functions.
With the launch now well under way, we can detail here the latest user guide.
When using the ISOCheck on a tractor and trailer, please make sure all health & Safety procedures are in place.
The ISOCheck is a test product & a diagnostic tool, the test lead will quickly identify where the fault is .i.e. on a tractor unit, a trailer or the existing Susie lead.
Testing a Tractor Unit
Firstly make sure the ignition is off in the tractor unit, remove the existing Susie lead that is fitted into the ISO socket.
Apply the ISOCheck to the ISO7638 socket on the tractor unit, fit the end with the clear Perspex modification, for future reference this is called “the ISOIndicator”.
Turn on the ignition, with all voltages and earths correct and also the ABS warning light “off” the ISOIndicator will light up GREEN.
If any of the voltages, earths or the warning light circuit is faulty, then the ISOIndicator will light up RED (or warning light on), this indicates a fault with the tractor unit, with the EBSPlus version the lead will now go into diagnostic mode and flash a count sequence in relation to the pin that is at fault. i.e. 5 flashes indicates PIN 5 “the warning light control wire”.
If the ISOCheck Truck Test resulted in Green and to confirm the trailer has a fault, not follow the trailer test procedure.
Testing the Trailer
Turn the truck ignition off.
Plug the ISOCheck Indicator into the trailer, turn on the ignition. The trailer warning light should activate on the truck dash board and the ISOCheck will light up RED.
The warning light should go out after 2 seconds and the ISOCheck will go GREEN, this means the trailers braking system is working at standstill.
If the warning light stays on, then drive the tractor and trailer above 10KPH, the warning light should go out and the ISOCheck will go GREEN. This proves the braking system is working correctly.
If all is working correctly and there is still an ABS fault light, this would mean the existing Susie lead is probably faulty. If the tester stays RED after a drive, stop the unit and trailer and remove the ISOCheck from the trailer. If the tester stays RED there is a power supply fault from the tractor unit or warning light fault, if the ISOCheck Indicator goes GREEN then there is a fault in the trailer system.

BackStop Trailer & Truck Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial rigid trucks and trailers.

 

The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to improve health & safety standards.

 

Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents. One incident in 2011 when an employee received crush injuries cost the UK transport operator a total of £15,000 in fines and costs.

 

For RCV’s aide automotive offer a Radar Sensor system. BackStop The Refuse Vehicle Reversing System automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a person or obstacle is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. This is achieved by measuring the phase shift, BackStop Radar can accurately map and detect people or objects behind the vehicle.

 

The RCV Reversing system only detects a target which is moving towards the sensor, so static parts of the vehicle like bin lifts or parts of bodywork are ignored, even though they may be in front of the sensor. This makes it ideal for Refuse Collection Vehicles or heavy plant with just a single sensor mounted centrally.
