As the air braking world has changed, we have had to adapt the way we deal with diagnostic problems that can arise on our customers vehicle systems. As the air signalling system has been fazed out and replaced by the EBS / ABS system we have endeavored to keep up with the advancements in the technology and created our own range of testing equipment.

Our test devices can be used in conjunction with the OE manufacturer’s testers to create a complete analysis structure for truck and trailers that is not only easy to use but also affordable to all sizes of fleet maintenance from owner / driver to multi fleet service garages.
Since 80% of all EBS / ABS problems are sensor related (Reported By Knorr Bremse & Wabco), by connecting to the sensor socket on each wheel, rather than the ECU, in effect, taking the quickest and most direct route, by going straight to the heart of the problem.
The Sensor Master DRA08 is a handheld EBS / ABS sensor and exciter ring tester, for use on trucks, trailers, and buses.
Lightweight and portable, the EBS /ABS CV Sensor Tester comes supplied with two 1.6m high quality cables, a sturdy carry case, short introductory printed manual, and a single 9V battery – everything, in fact, needed to use it straight out of the box.
Designed with ease of use in mind, the Commercial Vehicle ABS EBS Sensor Testertakes minutes to set-up, and, once connected, undertakes a complete test cycle of the six most common causes of EBS / ABS faults, at the touch of a button, in just 15 seconds – a fraction of the time it would take to perform the same tests manually.

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.

Midland Trailer Service & Repairs Installs TrailerCheck

Trailer Brake, Electrical, Light & Diagnostics Tester

Midland Trailer Service & Repairs based in Nottingham has recently invested in a modern trailer service and maintenance tester, TrailerCheck 4 Vans.

Owner, Dave Anderson started the business with his own DIY trailer tester to get the business off the ground, now with two years behind him and a reputation second to none, Dave decided to upgrade his tools with the professional TrailerCheck & Trailer diagnostics system Code Talk.

Dave explained “Starting a new business can be daunting in the early years, so my initial set up cost was kept to a tight budget. Now I am established I decided to invest in technology tools, I had seen aide automotives TrailerCheck in the press and decided to see what benefit the system would offer me. Following my meeting with aide automotive I quickly saw the benefit of the upgrade from my DIY trailer tester to a modern tool. 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.”

aide automotive talk to many trailer repairers about the benefits of a modern trailer tester against DIY systems. TrailerCheck offers a safe professional tool to maintain trailer air brakes and electrical systems. DIY trailer testers are usually made at home with items found around a workshop. Also powering a trailer via a DIY box has its risks, DIY boxes tend to be powered by batteries direct to a circuit, if the trailer had a short circuit a continuous voltage could burn out the cable loom resulting in further damage and hours of re cabling work.

TrailerCheck has a micro processor controlled circuit board to enable safe trailer testing and power conservation, enabling a engineer to test multiple trailer from single charged battery supply, if using batteries to power the trailer tester a split van charger can be purchased for battery recharging while the travelling, further more mains power options are available in 240 or 110 volt modes.

TrailerCheck also has the bonus of a diagnostics interface and REMOTE controller, Code Talk is an aftermarket engineers diagnostic tool, designed by UK trailer maintenance engineers for engineers.

Simple to use and operate, Code Talk makes trailer diagnostic maintenance an affordable option to any repairer.

Code Talk is all that is needed. No requirement for code manuals, phoning dealers, phoning high rate telephone lines, all the information is within Code Talk – Code Talk is the Diagnostic Manual for Trailers!

Code Talk is supplied with all cables to communicate with trailer ECU’s and with an optional carry case. Code Talk is also a remote controller for the TrailerCheck product range. TrailerCheck is the full electrical testing tool for 24 volt trailers.

Code Talk Remote for TrailerCheck also offers voltage, wire colour and pin information via the display. Trailer repairing made Easy!
