Bowmonk Sensor Check
The SensorCheck is a handheld EBS / ABS sensor and exciter ring tester, for use on trucks, trailers, and buses.
Conventional wisdom has it that problems with EBS / ABS systems fitted to trucks, trailers and buses, are best diagnosed via the vehicle's Electronic Control Unit (also known as the ECU). However, since 80% of all EBS / ABS problems are sensor related 1, by connecting directly to the sensor socket for each wheel rather than to the ECU you are, in effect, taking the quickest and most direct route by going straight to the heart of the problem.
Lightweight and portable, the SensorCheck is supplied with a 1.6m high quality cable and a separate "crocodile clip" universal adapter for those applications where the standard lead's termination is not applicable. A short introductory printed manual and a single 9V PP3 battery are also included. The SensorCheck comes ready to use straight out of the box.
Designed with ease of use in mind, the SensorCheck takes minutes to set-up and, once connected, undertakes a complete test cycle of the six most common causes of EBS / ABS faults, at the touch of a button, in just 15 seconds - a fraction of the time it would take to perform the same tests manually - and all without having to remove the road wheel. Tests start with the continuity of the sensor and sensor lead, the status of the air gap and the condition of the exciter ring.
