The Bowmonk BrakeCheck is probably the best known portable MOT & Commercial Vehicle Brake Tester around.

With over 20,000 brake testers sold, the Bownonk BrakeCheck is a valuable tool for many transport / haulage workshops and MOT stations in he UK & around the world.

With this and to increase the products quality we can now release a new addition to the BrakeCheck family of products – BrakeCheck Geo

The GPS facility can be turned on or off by the user as required and an indicator LED shows the GPS status. If the GPS facility is enabled, the unit will not conduct a brake test until a GPS fix has been obtained.
Decelerometer testing of commercial vehicles can now be proven further with this device, GPS location and time & date will 100% prove a test has taken place.
BrakeCheck Geo stores 99 Service Brake Tests & 99 Hand Brake tests within its memory capacity.

Vehicle Truck, Bus, Coach Winter Battery Test

Truck Bus, Coach Winter Battery Test
Cold Weather Means Vehicle Battery Tests More Beneficial
Cold weather is especially hard on Car, Van, Truck, Bus & Coach batteries.

According to AAA’s Automotive Research Center, at 0°F, a car’s battery loses about 60 percent of its strength, during cold temperatures starting an engine can take up to twice as much current as needed under normal conditions.

Cold weather inhibits the chemical reaction necessary to make a battery work, which is often the reason you may have trouble starting a vehicle on a cold winter morning! Cold weather together with a lack of vehicle usage, especially over the festive period, every year leads to high numbers of assistance call outs.

During the cold winter months, the last thing is a breakdown due to vehicle battery problems. A vehicle battery’s ability to charge is also reduced in the cold weather.

Charge and test is the recommendation for all garages while service or MOT-ing vehicles this winter.

Charging batteries will replace the lost capacity that modern day gadgets use, a vehicles recharging circuit will only replace the lost capacity through driving. Sat navs, mobiles phones and DVDs for example could slowly discharge a battery and cause a flat battery breakdown.

aide automotive have been marketing the Midtronics Battery Tester for over 10 years, with some great customer response over this period the Midtronics range offer ease of use and accurate diagnose compared to other cheaper models.

aide automotive have a range of new and used Midtronics Testers, with some used testers in perfect condition offering a good saving from a new tester.

To equip a workshop with a excellent tester before the winter hits and keep vehicles on the road contact use by clicking on Midtronics Battery Tester and ask for pricing and specification of 12 volt Battery Testers or 24 Volt System Testers.

Tester Clears ABS Faults Trucks Trailers Bus Coach

December 1st, 2016 Comments off

ABS Tester For Bus & Coach

The EBS/ABS Sensor Master is an easy to use device which will confirm each EBS/ABS sensor is operational and effective. By connecting to the sensor socket on each wheel, individual sensor faults can easily be identified. The Master also tests the exciter ring and the distance between the ring and sensor.

Problems with EBS / ABS systems fitted to Coaches and buses, are best diagnosed via a vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU). However, since 80% of all EBS / ABS problems are sensor related, by connecting to the sensor socket on each wheel, you are, in effect, taking the quickest and most direct route.

The exciter ring is a critical part of an ABS system on a truck or trailer. Exciter rings are open to the elements and likely to corrode or suffer damage from road debris. Whatever the cause of damage to the ring or the disc itself may still have plenty of life left in it. By diagnosing that the problem is the exciter ring not the brake disc, workshops can save operators unnecessary costly repairs.

ABS and EBS systems use exciter rings for a wheel sensor to produce a voltage so the ECU can establish if the wheel is turning or not. The EBS/ABS Sensor Tester is an easy to use device which will confirm each sensor is operational and effective. By connecting to the sensor socket on each wheel, individual sensor faults can easily be identified. The EBS/ABS Sensor Tester tests the exciter ring and the distance between the ring and sensor.

Full vehicle diagnostic kits can cost a workshop thousands, however at only £245 (+VAT) the EBS/ABS Sensor Master is an economical solution saving money for both the business and the customer.

The EBS ABS Sensor Tester is one of aide automotive’s best selling products!

Trucks Need Mirrors For London

February 9th, 2016 Comments off

Lorries Face Ban Over New Cycle Safety Measures

London has become the first city in Britain to fine the drivers of HGVs not fitted with equipment like mirrors to protect cyclists.

From the 1st of September all lorries over 3.5 tons in the capital must now be fitted with guards at the side to help prevent cyclists being dragged under wheels in the event of an accident.

They must also have a special type of mirror that helps the driver see those riding bicycles or on foot.

Any that do not have the equipment fitted with the safety equipment may be issued with a £50 fixed penalty notice and operators could face a maximum fine of £1,000 at a Magistrates’ court.

The new rules for lorries will operate 24 hours a day and cover every road in the capital except motorways.

Most HGVs are already required to fit side guards, but lorries involved in the construction industry have been exempt from that requirement. Similarly, while new lorries must have extended view mirrors fitted, older HGVs have been exempt.

A Hi Vu Commercial Vehicle Fresnel lens press-fits inside the truck’s passenger side window, like a mirror, Hi Vu affords the driver a normal, (through the window) view of what’s close to his cab, not a reversed or inverted mirror image. That means the driver will assimilate any danger much faster and react far more quickly.

Due to a blind spot, drivers of trucks cannot see smaller vehicles or other vulnerable road users which are immediately next to the passenger side door of their HGV. These unseen road users can be hit if the truck changes lane in their direction.

For the low price of £9.99 + vat, a Truck Or Bus Fresnel Mirror Lens is an ideal addition to a HGV to the required guards and mirrors.

Blind Spot Mirror For Trucks Is a Fresnel Lens

Truck HGV Blind Spot Lens

A Hi Vu Fresnel lens press-fits inside the truck’s passenger side window and is held firmly in place by its own ‘peel-back’ self-adhesive.

The Fresnel lens provides an extra downwards view for the HGV driver so that at a glance he can see any vulnerable road user that might be hidden in the mirror blind spot, alongside his passenger door.

Unlike a mirror, Hi Vu affords the driver a normal, (through the window) view of what’s close to his cab, not a reversed or inverted mirror image. That means the driver will assimilate any danger much faster and react far more quickly.

Due to a blind spot, drivers of trucks cannot see smaller vehicles or other vulnerable road users which are immediately next to the passenger side door of their HGV. These unseen road users can be hit if the truck changes lane in their direction.

DVSA says, “Even the latest HGVs with a full complement of six mirrors, in compliance with the latest EU directive, still have blind spots to the passenger side which are large enough to hide a family saloon car. The solution is to fit a special Fresnel lens.”
VOSA has conducted trials which have proven that by fitting Fresnel lenses to vehicles, both the frequency and the severity of “sideswipe” accidents is reduced.

Truck Mirror Lens Benefits

Multi-Vehicle Use – Trucks, Vans, Bus, Coach, RVs (Recreational Vehicle), SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicle) and Hatch-Backs.
Low Profile, Smallest Footprint Lens, No Window Obscurity
The Only ‘Peel Back’ Self-Adhesive Fresnel Lens available
