To meet certain vehicle safety protocols, pedal force must be measured and recorded. In order to quantify the quality of the braking system, the relationship between pedal force and braking force at the axle must be ascertained, either during an on-road stopping test or in a simulated indoor environment with a dynamometer, where pedal force can be measured.
Using an Interface’s BPL Pedal Load Cell along with the Model Wireless Telemetry System (WTS) provides a solution that measures the force being applied during the use of a brake pedal cycle. Utilizing wireless telemetry with the following Interface components, the valuable data can be displayed and/or recorded in real time using a PC and/or a handheld receiver depending on the requirements and preferences of the customer.
The relationship between pedal force and axle braking force is measured and recorded to ensure compliance with required safety regulations. Any necessary calibrations, adjustments, or modifications to the braking system can be assessed by whether the results of the brake testing fall within appropriate ranges of a pre-determined testing protocol.
