The proper functioning of brake systems can be affected by inadequate maintenance and inspection procedures, which may lead to unscheduled repairs and downtime, increase fuel costs, higher operating costs and even accidents.

The system is comprised of our smart brake actuators and a Data Integration Box (DIB), patent-pending TSE-Sense continuously monitors brake stroke at each wheel end. TSE-Sense can diagnose brake issues in real-time, including non-functioning brakes, dragging brakes, overstroke conditions, emergency spring failure, cross-axle brake imbalance and more.

The TSE-Sense brake actuator measures the brake stroke of each actuator, monitors the emergency spring condition and logs the brake performance data in the DIB. By performing brake diagnostic checks, it verifies that each actuator and the entire brake system is functioning properly.
