Datron's Vericom Performance Testers have both Braking and Acceleration measurement modes.The Acceleration mode can be programmed to measure from zero to a speed or to a distance or to a time.It can also be set to record time and distance between pre-set speeds such as 30 to 50 mph.
Datron's Vericom Performance Tester can be used as On-Board Dynamometer.It is able to calculate a vehicles horsepower at the wheel(s)during acceleration.The all-up weight of the vehicle should be measured and then entered into the Vericom's Set-up.Max HP will be calculated and displayed.A horsepower curve can be plotted in the Profile software.
The Datron Vericom VC4000DAQ is a brake tester which has additional inputs so that data from pressure sensors can be simultaneously recorded alongside deceleration,stopping distance,test E.T and speeds.Data can be graphed to evaluate the air brake performance.
The Datron Vericom brake tester uses the unique RDP (Run Duration Protocol) in it's operating firmware.This ensures that the data is recorded from the braking point to zero speed in all tests.For more information on the RDP function please contact Datron.
The Datron Vericom Brake tester has a unique feature which enables the brake test to be done from a few mph above the desired speed.At the end of the test the on-board display will show the actual distance from the desired test speed as well as overall distance and speed from which the test was started.
A piece of equipment measuring only one axis will make assumptions (for example, that the vehicle did not yaw during a skid test, and the ground is completely uniform).
The Vericom VC4000 makes use of accelerometers in three axes; this means that undulations in the road will be taken into account, as will yaw. This means that a skid test will be much more accurate under difficult conditions.
