BM13200 Brake Tester Features

BM13200 brake tester is a strong in-ground brake tester for light and heavy vehicles with axle load up to 20.000 kg.

The BM13200 have gear-motors placed behind the rollers and therefore only 345 cm high. It is designed for a direct replacement of old roller-beds without the need of modifying the roller bed pit, but is also very suitable for workshops with high water table.

The BM13200 brake tester is approved by several international authorities like RWTÜV Germany and complies with the ISO standard. The BM13200 is designed for workshop and vehicle inspection applications.


No other brake tester for heavy vehicles on the market offers the same long list of options including Automatic 8 cell weighing system and 260 mm rollers. The option list can meet most customer requirements including:

  • Infrared remote control
  • Service line and cylinder air pressure measurement
  • Automatic axle weighing
  • Test of 4×4, 6×4 8×6 driven vehicles
  • Diagnostic printout connection to PC/Notebook with BM Windows software
  • Chassis Load Simulation

The BM13200 brake tester is equipped with same electronics and software as the other BM brake tester models for light and heavy vehicles BM12200, BM17200 and BM20200 and therefore the BM13200 offers same high test standard and data processing as these models.

The design of BM13200 is made to a very high standard both in terms of quality and safety. All steel is hot galvanised and the wear surface of rollers is based on mesh steel to ensure long lifetime and accurate measurement. All gaps are minimised to protect staff and cover plate design around the roller area all have angles to minimise potential tyre damage. The robust design of BM13200 allows for outdoor installation in environment from – 30 °C – 60 ° Celsius and humidity up to 95.

As the BM13200 is designed for replacement of old roller beds of various make such as HPA, HH and Schneider the BM13200 is not supplied with standard sub-frames. Subframes are therefore designed and purpose build according to pit in which the BM13200 is to be installed.

The BM13200 brake tester can be equipped with up to 3 displays and due to the superior LAN technology of BM13200, these display are connected with a small cable consisting of only a 4 wires. The BM13200 can be supplied with a PDA solution, which allows operator to control and monitor the test results live directly on a PDA unit. This solution is particular beneficial for customers with short test bays, where the cabin of the vehicle passes the display in order to test rear axles.

Wheel span: 800 to 2800 mm.

Advantage and benefit

The BM13200 brake tester is supplied with the special windows based BM display, which has large analogue readings of brake force left and right, 65 mm high bright digital readout of other measurement results and an integrated guide system, which continuously informs the operator of the status of the brake tester status and also how many axles has been tested.

The display can be mounted either on the wall saving floor space or on floor column devices, which are designed so equipment is protected even when floor is cleaned with chemicals.

The BM13200 can be supplied in a minimum configuration and still allows for later upgrade to all options. This means that in case customer later wants to upgrade to a higher specification due to new legislation or other, then customer will not experience, that he has to purchase another brake tester.

As standard the BM13200 software allows for advanced graphical printout enabling the customer to perform both pre inspection brake tests and diagnosing before repair brake tests.

The BM13200 can be configured with the advanced Chassis Load Simulation system, CLS up to 30 Ton. This load simulation system has the advantage, that the Load Sensing Valve of the vehicle is automatically opened during the brake test. The CLS also allows for a fast and efficient test of correct functionality of the Load Sensing Valve.

A variation of advanced Windows Software programs can be supplied with the BM13200. This includes Windows programs for advance storing and presentation of test results using SQL database technology to the BM FlexCheck system, which allows for data capture of a complete vehicle inspection lane.


The BM13200 is used in normal workshops performing repair of any light or heavy vehicle.

The BM13200 is unique due to its design and low height, which allows for replacement of old roller beds of various makes such as HPA, HH and Schneider.
