Bowmonk Brake Check Kit
The Bowmonk Brake Check Kit is a fully self-contained, user-friendly, portable brake tester, used by
workshops, government traffic authorities and Authorised Test Facilities (ATF’s) around the world to
record the braking efficiency and percentage of braking imbalance of all classes of vehicle from a
Motorcycle to an HGV, in a matter of minutes.
The BrakeCheck is also approved by the DVSA for performing the quarterly voluntary brake tests
now required as part of the interim safety inspections.
The Bowmonk BrakeCheck determines braking efficiency of both the Service Brake (Foot Brake) and
Hand Brake by measuring the rate of deceleration from a speed of around 20 mph until the vehicle
comes to rest.
Designed to be self-compensating, the instrument will indicate on the LED screen when it is
positioned level enough to perform a brake test, with a generous tolerance to ensure that this is
easy to achieve.
The unit indicates whether the vehicle pulls to the left or right during braking, and is also capable of
measuring and displaying acceleration.
Test results can be viewed on the display panel or downloaded to a PC for saving or printing. A
printed report can also be produced at the time of testing using the portable infra-red printer.
The device operates on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack and will power-down after a period
of inactivity to conserve energy.
