New Brake Tester Launched
News has just been released that The Trade Group has launched a new Brake Tester machine called the Trademaster T5000. The new product is set to provide major benefits to garages, especially those carrying out MOT testing or a car service.
A spokesperson for The Trade Group, John Martin, released this statement, "Above all other requirements, the brake tester is a costly but vital part of any MOT facility. When making your choice, it's important to ensure that the equipment is CE approved, has a traceable pedigree and that the long term service support is demonstrably evident. Additional consideration should always be given to ensure that it can be upgraded easily and that it has a range of useful options that will allow it to provide additional profit opportunities, or, at the very least, allows you to extend the quality of service you are able to offer to your customers.
“With this in mind we have introduced the Trademaster T5000 series of PC controlled brake testers. Housed in a space saving, elegant and functional control cabinet, the powerful central control system allows the complete range of MOT tests to be integrated into a fast and easy to use system. Even the entry level Class 4 system features class leading graphics displayed on the 22" LCD screen, fast MOT testing and wireless remote control.
“From this base, the T5000 series systems builds to allow additional functions to be added including ATL functionality, either using the brake tester or a separate suspension tester to provide the weighing facility, a wireless colour printer, which can be housed safely in the office, wireless communication to the gas analyser and smokemeter and a side slip tester for a rapid check of wheel alignment. As a real technological bonus, a fully integrated Hand Held Device (HHD) is available that not only provides the full MOT test to be logged electronically, but imports both brake tester and emission results automatically, before sending the full test results to the VTS device at the touch of a button – all from the driver’s seat of the vehicle."
