Transport Operator Features Trailer Diagnostics For Specialist Truck & Trailer Services Ltd

Specialist Truck & Trailer Services Ltd boosts diagnostic efficiency with aide

Pudsey, Leeds-based mobile CV repairer Specialist Truck & Trailer Services Ltd has invested in the TrailerCheck 4 Vans light and air brake testing system from aide automotive, with Code Talk diagnostics.

Specialist Truck & Trailer Services Ltd researched various diagnostics systems before deciding on the TrailerCheck system, as the TrailerCheck has the capability to power multiple trailers and carry out ECU diagnostic analysis.

Designed to be mounted in a van or a workshop, the TrailerCheck is a one-man trailer service tool. In trailer light diagnostic mode a single circuit can be powered for fault-finding. TrailerCheck is also protected against short circuits; in this instance, the microprocessor will keep resetting with a back up fuse as protection.

The unit also incorporates two air test gauges, with a handheld remote brake activator and digital pressure gauge – meaning that a single trailer service engineer can work under a trailer, activating brakes and reading pressures.

Switching brakes on and off allows the user to look for wear in S-cams and faulty slack adjusters. The digital pressure gauge measures pressure at the brake chamber, ideal for setting load sensing valves.

EBS trailers can be tested for CAN line integrity, a quick and simple test to confirm the CAN lines are in working order.
STT opted to include the Code Talk trailer diagnostic tool as part of the package, which can read and clear codes on EBS and ABS braking systems.

The Trailer Diagnostics handset will communicate with a trailer’s ECU, reading and clearing fault codes on Wabco, Knorr Bremse and Haldex systems. With no annual software fee and up gradable for future-proofing, the system is said to eliminate the need for code manuals or expensive phone calls, since all the information is within the system.

Code Talk is supplied with all cables to communicate with trailer ECUs and with an optional carry case.
