Brake Inspector® from Spectra Products, Inc. is an electronic In-Cab Air Brake Diagnostic system that provides real time indication of air brake activity such as brake stroke travel, brake fade, hung up brakes and non-activating brake chambers. When the brakes are applied air brake activity is displayed on the in-cab diagnostic module by a series of LED's that use the international colors of GREEN for go, YELLOW for CAUTION, and RED for STOP.
- Product From MGM Brakes
MGM Brakes’ e.STROKE electronic brake monitoring system for air disc brake applications builds upon the company’s GEN 3 electronics, cabling and diagnostic software and adds a new optical sensing technology to monitor air disc pushrod stroke and caliper lever arm movement. The new GEN-3D system continuously monitors every brake apply and release and notifies braking problems via a dash warning light alerting the driver to a potential braking problem and a J-1939 real-time transmission of any fault condition which can be relayed via onboard data recording and reporting systems. By monitoring the braking system in real-time, the GEN-3D can detect non-functioning brakes, dragging brakes and over stroke brakes.
- Product From Equipment Supply Company (ESCO)
ESCO's Brake Safe is a simple, accurate and effective means of providing a visual of air-brake stroke travel. Brake Safe helps drivers and fleets comply with CSA 2010; Subpart C 393.53 “automatic brake adjusters & brake adjustment indicators." Brake Safe takes the guesswork out of determining brake adjustments. The Brake Safe System is available in two universal formats: one fits all power unit steering and drive axles, while a second fits all trailer axles. Brake Safe can be installed on a brake chamber in 10-15 minutes, using basic shop tools.
- Product From Webb Wheel Products
The Webb Wheel Disc Brake Rotors with LifeShield technology have an invisible protective layer across the entire rotor surface to resist corrosion beyond what traditional coatings offer. LifeShield is a unique heat treatment process that adds increased corrosion protection and provides wear resistance. The combined benefit of more corrosion protection and greater wear resistance realized with LifeShield technology means longer rotor life resulting in lower maintenance and operating costs, according to the company. These rotors are available for popular medium and heavy duty disc brake applications.

- Product From ConMet (Consolidated Metco)
ConMet's TruTurn brake drums are constructed using a unique "turned-to-balance" machining process, which improves strength by eliminating the need for weld-on weights and balance cuts. TruTurn drums are stronger and offer other advantages such as better thermal expansion for reduced brake pulsing, and improved heat transfer, so the drum and its lining stay cool. Braking force is more evenly distributed, and vibration and brake "judder" are minimized. Test after test, in the lab and on the highway, TruTurn brake drums beat the competition, according to the company. They surpass the accepted standards of the performance drag, stopping distance and durability tests.
