The roller brake testers can test the braking systems of wheeled vehicles with an axle load of up to 16,000 kg (VLT 16733 models) or 20,000 kg (VLT 20733 models). Testing can be carried out in both forward and reverse directions, for service, secondary, transmission and applied parking with opposite rotation (vehicles with fixed 4-wheel drive). The brake tester measures time lag, braking force, bind (drag), ovality and imbalance. Vehicle information is retrieved from the VOSA database, whenever possible.
