Notification of Calibration for BrakeCheck [pdf]
Authorization to Proceed with Calibration Form [pdf]

The Bowmonk BrakeCheck is a fully self-contained, portable, battery-powered device that can be used by workshops, government traffic authorities, testing and inspection stations etc. to test and report on vehicle brake efficiency. The unit is MOT approved.

The Bowmonk BrakeCheck determines braking efficiency of both the Service Brake (Foot brake) and Hand Brake by measuring deceleration.

Designed to be self-compensating, the instrument will indicate on the LED screen when it is positioned level enough to perform a brake test. A generous tolerance ensures "level enough" is easily achieved. All operations are performed using only three buttons on the unit.

The Bowmonk BrakeCheck can be used to test any type of vehicle, including motorcycles, and can be positioned anywhere in the vehicle. The device operates on 4 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium batteries and will power-down after a period of inactivity to conserve energy.

With the Bowmonk BrakeCheck, test results can be viewed on the display or downloaded to a PC. Printing can be done from the PC or by using a portable serial or infrared printer.
