Whether you’re driving a class 4, 5 or 7 vehicle, the latest brake testing technology from world renowned manufacturer Stoneridge Electronics is here to get your truck in tip-top shape, and keep your driver safe on the road.

The recently-developed ARENA 250 has been made with flexibility and versatility in mind and provides VOSA approved tachograph calibration too. It really is your one-stop shop for all your brake testing needs.

Working in conjunction with LiftMaster, an already well-established name in the field of brake testing products in the marketplace, Stoneridge have modified the existing assembly to add a ‘360 pulses per revolution’ encoder to improve accuracy.

Stoneridge’s UK Sales Manager Colin MacLean, said he was looking forward to the company’s diversification into roller brake testing: “We’ve taken advantage of our tachograph calibration functionality to give our customers a number of benefits. These include utilization of space, lessening of noise within the workplace and adopting a single piece of technology for tachograph calibration and brake testing.” Watch the full video interview here.

These benefits aside, the machinery boasts easy-to-use technology which guides the user through the complete testing program, automatic roller start-up as soon as the front wheels are in position and superb efficiency through program-controlled evaluations.

But don’t just take their word for it! Andy Salter, of Commercial Motor, went to Scottish vehicle dealer Norscot Truck and Van to see the machinery in action.

“The most effective new vehicle workshops are those that are constantly looking at innovative ways to satisfy their customers, drive efficiency and utilize their workshop,” he explained.

“Users of the ARENA 250 say it is faster, better, easier to use and safer compared to previous technologies. If you’re involved in this sector, [the ARENA 250] should be on the top of your shopping list.”

This technology is ideal if you manage a whole fleet of trucks or are a commercial vehicle workshop owner; each piece of testing equipment can be tailored to suit the needs of your business i.e. adding additional test lane facilities.

What’s most impressive, however, is that the technology can be controlled by a single person – it is quieter, safer, quicker and easy to operate, meaning staff are utilizing their time more efficiently. A full VOSA database comes pre-installed with the software too, so you can ensure each vehicle complies with industry standards and regulations.
