THE BRAKEVIEW KIT
The BrakeView kit includes everything you need to begin making accurate measurements of your rotor geometry.
- Durable Carrying Case
Take your system with you. The carrying case dimensions are also approved as 'carry on" for air travel.
- BrakeView Console
Includes a USB port and a PCMCIA slot for easy storing of measurements. You can load the files back at your PC with BrakeViewDesktop.
- Compact Flash Card and Adapter
To upgrade the BrakeView software: simply place the new installation files on the compact flash card, insert the card and power up the system.
- Calibration Fixture
Used to hold the probes while calibrating the system.
- Gage Blocks
Gage blocks are used to calibrate the probes. The BrakeView software guides you through a simple procedure of measuring two gage blocks - ensuring that your measurements will have the highest level of accuracy.
- Cigarette Lighter Adapter
Power your BrakeView system via the vehicles 12v system. Don't worry about keeping it plugged in all of the time - BrakeView's internal battery allows for 1-2 hours of run-time!
- Optical Sensor
Detects the "zero point" of the rotation. Contact us for other rotation sensing options.
- Measuring Probes (LVDT's)
BrakeView uses two Linear Variable Differential Transformers (LVDT's) for measuring the braking surfaces - one on each side of the rotor. These probes have a standard 3/8" outside diameter and are compatible with your current dial indicator fixturing. BrakeView uses LVDT's with a measuring range of +/- 0.5 mm (+/- 0.020"). The LVDT's are fitted with large radius contacts to allow for the measurement of cross-drilled and slotted rotors.
- Screen Protector Cloth
Keeps your screen protected while not using BrakeView.
- Universal Probe Holder
The BrakeView kit includes a universal probe holder - however, most customers choose to develop or purchase a custom probe holder that simply clips onto their caliper. Contact us to learn more about probe holders for you caliper design.
- A/C Adapter (110v / 220v)
Powers BrakeView and re-charges the system's battery.
