Faulty Brakes are Costly

United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) requires trucks have 80% of their total braking capacity to operate. If a truck is found to be more than 20% out-of-adjustment, that truck is immediately placed out of service until the brakes are adjusted. Out of service trucks result in expensive delays for trucking firms and their clients due to emergency service, delayed deliveries, lost opportunity cost and dangerous traffic incidents.

44% percent of trucks are found to have brake problems.

Brake Inspections Are a Hassle

Performing a semi-truck brake inspection requires one person to press the brake pedal while another person has to crawl around under the truck to take the push-rod measurements, regardless of weather conditions or terrain. This process is time-consuming and expensive.

SeeBrake Makes it Simple

SeeBrake saves time and money because it measures push-rod activity automatically. SeeBrake also measures air values sequencing to provide balanced braking, to maximize stopping power and assist in preventing jackknifing.

The driver or maintenance person can view the readings for each brake on the in-cab display, and the data may be transmitted to the company maintenance facility.

SeeBrake will not replace physical brake inspections, but it will improve highway safety and reduce maintenance costs by enabling the operator to regularly inspect their brake performance.

Properly Functioning Brake Benefits

  • Stop straight and within shorter distances.
  • Experience more even tire wear, resulting in fewer change-outs.
  • Knowing what each brake is doing means less wear on all brake components.
  • Shave trouble shooting time by half an hour, by immediately knowing which brake is bad. This frees up your mechanic to check other issues that may require attention, providing a labor and parts cost savings.
  • Eliminate potential for citations due to defective brakes.

High Quality Components

SeeBrake survives in the tough environment at the brake because its components are manufactured to Military Specification Standards (Mil-Spec). Our brake monitoring system is produced only by highly reliable manufacturers in the United States. This commitment to excellence maximizes compatibility, interoperability, safety, repeatability and quality.

Mil-Spec Electronics

There are three grades of electronics.
Commercial: 32 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit
Industrial: -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit
Military: -67 to 257 degrees Fahrenheit.

In addition to surviving a broad temperature range, Mil-Spec components are further tested to survive chemical road conditions, vibration, and strain.

Aviation Aluminum

SeeBrake uses Aviation Grade aluminum 6061 T6 mounting brackets because of its high PSI yield range of 35,000; materials may flex but won’t break.

T4=30,000 PSI with a 16,000 PSI Yield Range
T6=42,000 PSI with a 35,000 PSI Yield Range

Static Measurements:

The brakes are already in full position.

No way to know how long each air canister to release.

Dynamic Measurements:

Measure the Distance travelled

Measure the Time to get there

System Interactions

SeeBrake monitors push rod readings and timings.

Unlimited axles and brake sensor inputs.

It does not control the brakes.

It does not interfere with braking capability.

If SeeBrake has a failure, the brakes WILL still function.

It can communicate with a tractor's on-board computer.

It is compatible with most wireless providers.

Safety is a number one priority in the operation of a commercial truck. Improved brake compliance adds to that safety... and allows us to improve on delivery times, reduces inspection stops due to safety record, saves fuel. Safety also saves money by keeping insurance claims down.
