The Bowmonk VI & 2000 Electronic Brake Meters have built-in printers and support optional pedal force transducers to measure the force applied to the vehicle's footbrake during braking.  Using the pedal force transducer will also identify any "braking delay" - the time between depressing the brake pedal and the brakes being applied.

The VI & 2000 are extremely versatile instruments designed for brake and skid testing, road traffic accident investigation and reconstruction and vehicle safety inspections.  Portable and DVSA approved, the units are easy to use and produce hard copy evidence of the test results on a built-in printer.  All results are time date stamped and additionally the vehicle and examiner identification can be included - having been entered using the built-in keyboard.

For brake testing applications, the units will also calculate from the deceleration, time and slope, the vehicle speed at braking and distance travelled.  For heavy vehicle brake testing in mines and quarries, these units measure brake effort, which takes into account the vehicle speed and ground slope.

The Bowmonk 2000 allows test results to be downloaded to a PC and is also able to measure acceleration.
