Truck Potentiometer Tester For Brake Calipers

June 25th, 2019 Comments off

Commercial Vehicle Brake Caliper Tester

The tester is used to check the potentiometers (wear indicators) in brake calipers and for the determination of the wear of the brake disc and brake pads.

The practice of checking a potentiometer for faults and replacement could save a commercial vehicle operator thousands instead of complete caliper replacements!!

The reported practise of replacing a complete calipers rather than testing and replacing a potentiometer is in the past if you own an aide automotive Potentiometer Tester.

The procedure for checking the potentiometer can be carried out with the caliper installed on the vehicle or with the caliper removed, simply connect the supplied correct cable to the brake potentiometer, power the tester and choose which type you are testing, MAN / Mercedes 3 Wire Gold DAF / Mercedes 2 Wire Scania / Iveco / Mercedes 3 Wire Silver

The display will show the voltage, pad wear percentage & bar graph.

To set a new potentiometer simply wind the potentiometer until the display show 0 %, done!!

To test a potentiometer, wind the potentiometer until about 2.75 volts, this will show low pads warning and then to 100% for failure warning. SIMPLE!!

So start testing & replacing potentiometers to save money today!!
