VIS-Check

VIS-Check is an undercarriage diagnostic system combined with a performance based brake tester (PBBT) and a dynamic road simulator. The brake tester measures the braking force produced by each wheel on a vehicle, right to left and axle by axle. It then produces a definitive report on the health of a vehicle’s brakes including a PASS or FAIL rating to DOT specifications.

The road simulator allows technicians to view steering and suspension components under harsh operating conditions. Otherwise undetectable mechanical issues are easily spotted on the VIS-Check simulator.

*At the end of the inspection, it produces a “Safety and Efficiency Report” to guide and assist the service technician’s maintenance activities.
