Maha Ireland adds Connect Truck

Maha Ireland has added Connect Truck, the digital brake tester that revolutionises the market and allows everything customers want in terms of visualisation and display options. The new Connect Truck series is available for vehicles up to 20 tonne axle load.

Maha says it is revolutionising the market and thinking far into the future with the entire Connect Series from cars to trucks. In addition to 50 years of know-how in the field of brake testing technology, the product series also includes many highlights of the new, digital generation in the mechanical and electronic areas.

The latest product from Maha was presented to more than 100 live participants at the Maha Training Centre in Haldenwang, Germany on 30th June 2022. For all those invited who were unable to travel in person, there was the option of joining the event digitally.

More than 200 online participants took advantage of this opportunity. In total, partners, customers, friends and trade press from over 35 countries followed the unique bilingual event.

After the theoretical part of the product launch, the black curtain fell, revealing under fog the star of the day: the Connect Truck with a yellow US school bus standing for inspection. This allowed the participants to convince themselves personally and virtually of the “10 out of 10 product advantages” that make a compelling case for the purchase of a Connect brake tester.

10 out of 10 product advantages distinguish the Connect brake tester:

  1. A sturdy and solid design
  2. Modular interface module in the floor assembly
  3. Secure and digital data transmission
  4. Modular control cabinet design
  5. Multi-flexible display options “unlimited”
  6. Simple initial start-up
  7. Simple maintenance and service
  8. Safe operation
  9. Optimised calibration and adjustment
  10. Integrated and expandable software and/or interfaces

The Connect Series digital brake testers allow everything that customers want in terms of visualisation and display options. Under the motto “Bring your own device”, it is possible to connect any kind of smartphone, tablet, notebook, PC or Smart TV wirelessly to the Connect.

Those who prefer a more conventional approach can also connect their device via network cable. The installation of an app or software is not required for use, only a current web browser is needed.

The digital Connect Series can also be integrated into an existing company network. A readout of the machine data or a continuous diagnosis including the sensors is possible without restrictions.

In addition, this can also be done by remote diagnosis from any location via the Internet, if desired. It is important that no integration into the local network or the internet is necessary to operate the test stand.

The customers decide for themselves about the various possibilities. The extensive product range of Maha truck brake testers covers all areas of application of Maha’s worldwide customers.

These areas include test stands with 8 tonne axle loads and a testable track width of 2.8 m through to special test stands with 20 tonne axle loads for special vehicles such as low-loaders and tractors or vehicles with excess width.
