HGV Road Sweeper Proximity Reversing Auto Braking System

February 22nd, 2021 Comments off

New Order & Customer On Board this week !

We will be working with @Trustseal to install a Back Stop Auto Braking System on the Trustseal Road sweeper.

This is the start of a Media Diary to see how the project progresses and completion to customer.

BackStop Trailer & Truck Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial & mobile plant vehicles.

The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to prevent reversing incidents & vehicle damage.

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.

Trailer Light Tester “TCheck Super Start”

January 18th, 2021 Comments off
24 Volt HGV Trailer Tester
Low Cost HGV Light Electrical Tester

TCheck Super Start is an ideal low cost effective test gauge to quickly determine the electrical integrity of an EBS/ ABS braking system plus a full lighting check.

Installed into a fitters fleet support van, this product completes to kit required to test and inspect 24 volt HGV trailers.

Individual light circuit switches and EBS CAN line test with the Warning light via the face panel, TCheck Super Start show power supply voltage & supplied supplied with detachable Susie cables.

Using a tractor unit to carry out a trailer test is not as effective as the TrailerCheck as the tractor unit is not guaranteed to be a 100% working unit, TrailerCheck is!

TCheck Super Start eliminates the indecision and confirms the trailer’s fault. Additionally when servicing or prepping trailers there maybe no space to hook a tractor unit up.

Commercial Vehicle Brake Testing 2020

HGV Brake Testing Top Of TC’s Agenda For 2020


England’s Commercial Vehicle traffic commissioners report emphasising the importance of competent #brake #testing procedures for heavy vehicles.

Acknowledging that operators had been investing in roller brake testing, the TCs were pleased to note that this was improving brake performance at annual test.

“In 2017/18, there were almost 10,000 fewer failures for service brake performance at commercial vehicle annual tests than in 2013/14,” said the report.

“The biggest improvement we have seen is for trailers – in the same period, an extra 5,500 passed their brake performance test the first time.” However, while the TCs praised these “really encouraging” results, they insisted that there was “more to achieve” – not least because “brake failures are still dominating the top ten reasons for MOT failure”. There were 22,000 failures for service brake performance in 2017/18; and the TCs highlighted a range of commonly recurring issues relating to brake tests. One such issue was that of periodic maintenance inspection (PMI) brake checks being conducted on unladen vehicles and trailers with wheels locking at very low brake efforts; another was test printouts saying ‘pass’ where it was clear one or more brakes were not working properly. Operators and transport managers failing to understand the information on the printout was a further bugbear, as was the issue of technicians conducting brake tests failing to identify potential serious safety concerns. TCs also highlighted a general failure to grasp that the standards applied at PMIs should actually be higher than minimum annual test requirements.

Also, there are a great number of commercial workshops who are still of the misconception that all of the aforementioned brake tests have to be performed on a roller brake tester. This is not the case! The Traffic Commission has allowed the use of a DVSA-approved brake tester, like a decelerometer / BrakeCheck, for all non-MOT brake tests.

HGV Brake Testing Using A Decelerometer

HGV Brake Testing – As Per The DVSA

As you have purchased or are a user of a decelerometer, detailed below is the status of required testing of HGV’s as taken from the DVSA’s “Guide to maintaining roadworthiness” November 2018.

As within the industry we at aide automotive hear varied opinions of what is required when brake testing commercial vehicles, we have detailed the requirement as per the DVSA’s guidance.

No 1 – The current law could still be the fact that ONE annual MOT roller brake test (RBT) is the requirement.

No 2 – As the Health & Safety standards of the UK are of a high standard, duty of care laws could leave an operator open to the fact that high risk practices requires more testing.

No 3 – The DVSA’s “Guide To Maintaining Roadworthiness” should be used as the bench mark for all maintenance standards and be the minimum best practice.

So what does the Guide (For Brake Testing) say?

Safety inspection facilities
Facilities should include: • undercover accommodation for the largest vehicle in the fleet. This is required to ensure that safety checks can be conducted satisfactorily in all weathers (depending on fleet size the building may need room for more than one vehicle at a time) • tools and equipment appropriate to the size and nature of the fleet – access to brake test equipment (eg a roller brake tester, decelerometer)

As per the annual test, every safety inspection must assess the braking performance of the vehicle or trailer. It is STONGLY ADVISED that a calibrated roller brake tester (RBT) is used at each safety inspection to measure individual brake performance and overall braking efficiencies for the vehicle or trailer to the annual test standards. However, it is also acceptable to use an approved and calibrated decelerometer to measure overall brake efficiency values for vehicles without trailers.

Brake testing should be undertaken with the vehicle or trailer in a laden condition in order to achieve the most meaningful results; however, due to basic design limitations or restriction caused by the type of cargo normally carried, this is sometimes not possible

A printout of the brake efficiency test from either the RBT or decelerometer should be attached to the safety inspection record. If the brake test equipment cannot produce a printout, efficiency results must be recorded by the inspector on the safety inspection report. To help operators arrange a brake performance assessment with safety inspections, it is acceptable for a satisfactory brake performance assessment to be carried out within the same week of the planned safety inspection. Brake efficiency testing can be carried out by either an approved RBT or decelerometer test.

The conclusion! An O Licence operator should carry out a brake test on every inspection (to meet the DVSA guidance as above, although further detailed text does state “it is therefore normally expected that the vehicle or trailer should complete at least three successful brake efficiency tests spread throughout the year in addition to the annual MOT test), this can be achieved using an RBT or Decelerometer, the test should be printed out and attached to the safety inspection sheet. With regard to decelerometer tests, if the user decided to carry out the test laden, he/she should write on the printout as so: Laden / Un Laden.

If you are unsure about any of the above text or details, please do not hesitate to contact aide automotive.

Truck & Bus Product Focus Email For November is “HGV Trailer Servicing” Featuring aide auto’s TrailerCheck 4 Vans, Code Talk Trailer Diagnostics & ISOCheck.

Van Trailer Check enables a one man quick mobile or workshop trailer service & diagnostics test on; lighting, ABS-EBS-CAN circuits and all air brake systems on trailers in one unit.

• Reduces time to service, inspect or find faults on trailers. • Safer, you’re in control and no smokey, noisy tractor unit up front.

• Makes brake testing a one man job.

• Enables you to fix multiple trailers – earning you more money

N&S Commercial Services in the Vale Of Glamorgan have been using the TrailerCheck 4 Vans for 5 years! With 5 kits within service vans, James Stauber commented; ‘’These 5 Testers are made so well we have not had to repair or replace them In 5 years!”

Midland Trailer Service & Repairs are another user; “TrailerCheck has improved my service and with the diagnostics system I can now offer ECU code reading and clearing, a new service to my customers.”

Stay OCRS compliant Stay compliant and protect your OCRS with Aide Automotive genius products: Code Talk Diagnostics and ISO-Check, save hours finding faults on your trailer.

Code Talk is a world renowned, diagnostics, hand held, fault code reader, for a variety of trailer manufacturers and specifically their ABS/EBS brake systems. Simply plug into the 7638 dedicated EBS Suzy and it will read out and clear any fault codes that the trailer may have. Code Talk can also show live air pressures, wheel speeds, and system voltages which also helps with quick diagnostics. It can also act as a remote to our TrailerCheck and TC products.

ISO-Check visually alerts you if there is a problem with the connection/power from the tractor unit or with your trailers braking system. It works by measuring the voltages on all 7 pins in the dedicated 7638 lead. If all pins are ok the light will glow green, if there is a fault on any pin the light will glow red. As an extra we can make the red light flash a certain number of times to indicate which pin is at fault. e.g. 2 flashes means pin 2 is faulty.
