Test bench for rail vehicle brakes


M-110.951 / MI-8 "Transformer"

The test bench MI-8 is designed for testing braking and driving characteristics of rail vehicles in moving or in stationary state.

Technical description:

The MI-8 has an integrated battery which provides 8 hour continuous operating in the field without any other power supply and even can power your laptop. All features are packed in a special suitcase useful for practical field testing. The software offers real-time monitoring as well as control of the process.

The test bench gives analyses of the most important parameters of braking process: pressure, brake force on the disk in state of moving or in stationary state (normal and tangential components), brake force on the brake pad in stationary state, temperature of the process, velocity and braking distance. The electronic brake device controlled by computer provides fully automated run of braking system tests according to UIC543-1 and VPI07 standards and customized protocol.
