Putting the brakes on roller testing

Brake maintenance and regular checks are key when it comes to ensuring fleet and drivers are safe and compliant.

The downtime associated with roller brake testing a fleet several times year can be costly which is unfortunate to operators.

To mitigate this issue, Axscend has released a new system. Electronic Brake Performance Monitoring System (EBPMS) provides dynamic, live monitoring of a trailer’s braking performance and records every brake event as it happens. Information is sent through the portal which can be accessed via desktop or mobile app.

The brake performance status of fleet assets are colour coded – green is good, amber is a warning and red is critical.

An example of a DVSA report.

Alerts and notifications are sent immediately if there are any brake problems identified. This allows the user to get them fixed, prevent further damage and downtime while keeping fleet and drivers safe and compliant.

The resulting data is plotted in an easy to read graph against the DVSA pass mark. Reports for the DVSA are available and easily accessible from the portal or app.

EBPMS has been included in the DVSA’s ‘Guide to Roadworthiness’ which was written in association with Axscend.

Status information via EBPMS app.
