A brake caliper is a component in a disc brake system that houses the brake pads and applies pressure to them, causing them to clamp onto the brake disc or rotor. Over time, the caliper changes due to factors like aging, temperature fluctuations, and environmental conditions. As a result, it becomes crucial to continuously calibrate and test calipers to ensure optimal braking performance and vehicle safety.
Interface’s LW General Purpose Load Washer Load Cell is placed between the piston and brake pad of the caliper. A brake pad test is conducted and the data collected from the LW is displayed, graphed, and logged on the customer’s PC with supplied SI-USB4 software, when connected to the SI-USB4 4-Channel USB Interface Module.
Interface’s LW General Purpose Load Washer Load Cell was the perfect solution to measuring and testing the caliper’s clamp force, ensuring braking capabilities and vehicle safety.
