Trailer Brake, Electrical, Light & Diagnostics Tester Upgrade For MTSR

Midland Trailer Service & Repairs has recently invested in a modern trailer service and maintenance tester, “TrailerCheck 4 Vans.”

Starting with a DIY Trailer Light Tester, MTSR decided to invest and upgrade with a TrailerCheck & Code Talk Diagnostic system.

The Owner of MTSR explained "I decided to invest in technology, I had seen aide automotives TrailerCheck in the press and decided to see what benefit the system would offer me. Following my meeting with aide automotive I quickly saw the benefit of the upgrade from my DIY trailer tester to a modern tool.

TrailerCheck has improved my service and with the diagnostics system I can now offer ECU code reading and clearing, a new service to my customers."

How Dr Air Brake can help you
stay OCRS compliant:

Stay compliant and protect your OCRS with Dr Air Brakes genius products, such as Code Talk and ISO-Check, save hours finding faults on your trailer.

Code Talk is a world renowned, diagnostics, hand held, fault code reader, for a variety of trailer manufacturers and specifically their ABS/EBS brake systems. Simply plug into the 7638 dedicated EBS Suzy and it will read out and clear any fault codes that the trailer may have. Code Talk can also show live air pressures, wheel speeds, and system voltages which also helps with quick diagnostics. It can also act as a remote to our VTC and TC products.

ISO-Check visually alerts you if there is a problem with the connection/power from the tractor unit or with your trailers braking system. It works by measuring the voltages on all 7 pins in the dedicated 7638 lead. If all pins are ok the light will glow green, if there is a fault on any pin the light will glow red. As an extra we can make the red light flash a certain number of times to indicate which pin is at fault. e.g. 2 flashes means pin 2 is faulty.
