Accomplishments

Train Brake Force measurement tester: InterSwiss, Ltd.

Knightronix developed an automatic digital brake force tester with the ability to test brakes on eight freight-car wheels at one time. The system uses a rugged handheld computer to store the brake force data, which is later transferred to a desktop or laptop computer for printout or data plotting.  Braking ratios are automatically calculated and stored as well. The system greatly simplifies the brake testing required by the Association of American Railroads (AAR).  Click on the link below for more information on our brake force measurement system.
