Solutions for trailer and towed machinery manufacturers

Safety of the braking systems

The effectiveness of braking systems on trailers and towed machinery is subject to strict testing in Europe. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to prove the effectiveness of the brakes regardless of the towing vehicle. The basic principles for testing in Europe are described in ECE Regulation No. 13 for Class 0 vehicles (trailers) with pneumatic and Class R and S vehicles.

Based on a long-standing cooperation with the market leader of brakes in the utility vehicle sector, IGEMA has developed an electronic brake test unit (BTU) for the assessment of vehicle brakes in dynamic field tests, which is easy to handle and provides reliable and reproducible results.

IGEMA also supplies other diagnostic and test systems for vehicle safety.

IGEMA products are reliable, safe and economical!
