Brake Lining Wear Measurement Sensor
Brake Lining Wear Measurement Sensor

The BrakePadMonitor from BPW is a sensor that continuously measures the thickness of the brake lining wear, enabling remote check and forward planning for visits to the garage without system maintenance. It uses an inductive measurement process displaying the degree of wear in ten per cent intervals in the cargofleet 3 telematics portal from the BPW subsidiary idem telematics and in the associated driver app. 


Robust and protected against mechanical loads


The robust sensor is protected against mechanical loads thanks to its installation in the fixed bearing of the brake. It does not wear out, has no moving parts and it is designed to last as long as the trailer. Moreover, there is no need to remove or adjust the sensor when replacing the brake linings and discs. It also monitors how much the brake caliper moves and provides a warning before overheating can occur. If necessary, the BrakePadMonitor can be retrofitted in the previous ECO Disc generation.
