BM7010 Brake Tester for Cars – Class 4
BM7010 brake tester is a strong in-ground car brake tester for light vehicles with axle load up to 3500 kg.
The design of the BM7010 brake tester is unique on the marked due to being a “split roller bed” system.
The BM7010 is approved by several international authorities like DVSA in the UK. The BM7010 is designed for workshop and vehicle inspection applications.
The brake tester features a long range of options, which allows for a configuration, which can meet most customer requirements including:
- Infra Red remote control
- Pedal force measurement
- Test of 4×4 driven vehicles
- Diagnostic/graphical printout without connection to PC
- Connection to local or remote PC with BM windows software
- Prepared for test line expansion including Suspension tester, Speedometer tester and side slip tester all controlled from same electronics with results shown on same display.
The BM7010 is equipped with same electronics and software as the other BM brake tester models for light vehicles BM3010, BM8010 and BM9010 A and B and therefore the BM7010 offers same high test standard and data processing as these models.
The design of BM7010 brake tester is made to a very high standard both in terms of quality and safety. All steel is hot galvanised and the wear surface of rollers is based on mesh steel to ensure long lifetime and accurate measurement.
As standard the BM7010 is supplied with hot galvanised sub-frames, which are concreted into the ground before the actual brake tester is installed. The sub-frames make the planning and implementation of installations much easier and do also ensure correct alignment of the brake tester during concreting.
The BM7010 can be supplied with a PDA solution, which allows operator to control and monitor the test results live directly on a PDA unit.
Wheel span: 880 to 2580 mm.
Advantage and benefit
The split bed concept has the advantage over a one-rollerbed concept that it can be installed over an inspection pit. Additional the owner can very easily perform maintenance, as the roller bed can be lifted out of the subframes by two persons without use of any tools.
Additional the design of the roller bed is done, so it is completely flush-floor. With roller cover plates placed on top of the roller bed, the BM7010 becomes one with the workshop floor making it easy to cross it from any angle.
The BM7010 is as standard supplied with a display having two large analogue readings of brake force left and right and 50 mm high bright digital readout of brake force imbalance.
When configured with suspension tester and side slip, then these gauges and the digital imbalance window is used to display the test result from this equipment.
Optionally the BM7010 can be supplied with a special windows based BM display, which additional has 50 mm high bright digital readout of ovality, pedal force, weight, efficiency, suspension values, speed and distance values.
The display can be mounted either on the wall saving floor space or on floor column devices.
The BM7010 can be supplied in a minimum configuration and still allows for later upgrade to all options. This means that in case customer later wants to upgrade to a higher specification due to new legislation or other, then customer will not experience, that he has to purchase another brake tester.
As standard the BM7010 software allows for advanced graphical printout enabling the customer to perform both pre inspection brake tests and diagnosing before repair brake tests. This advanced printout of test results can be done without having to connect a PC to the brake tester.
The BM7010 can be configured to run BM Windows Software programs installed on a PC. This PC can replace the analogue display or it can be an “add-on” installed in the workshop office. The Windows program allows for advanced storing and presentation of test results using SQL database technology.
Due to the robustness of the BM7010 most installation are not done in conjunction with an inspection pit.
The BM7010 has been supplied to many caravan workshops, as the BM7010 can be supplied with special subframes, which allows for the rollerbed to be pushed to the side to increase/decrease the test wheel span.
The BM7010 is used in normal workshops performing repair of any light vehicle. The BM7010 can be supplied with a motor cycle mode, which allows for test of motor cycles but also 3-wheel cars.
