There is nothing more concerning for a business or organisation than when one of their vehicles is in an accident damaging property or instigating insurance claim woes. Even worse, if an employee or an innocent bystander is also injured.

The MAX-SAFE™ Anti-Rollaway brake system has been designed to eliminate a vehicle from rolling away.

This system is an ideal vehicle safety solution for the following types of vehicles/industries:

  • Cement trucks
  • Garbage and Recycling trucks
  • Removalist trucks and vans
  • Delivery trucks and vans
  • Passenger buses
  • Mining vehicle equipment including trucks
  • Road construction equipment

The Anti-Rollaway brake system is classed as an active safety system not a passive system as it takes control of the vehicle if the driver is not seated in the vehicle. The system has NOT been designed to take away the responsibility of the operator from applying the park brake before exiting the vehicle.

Key features of the Anti-Rollaway brake system include:

  • Electronic control system that identifies the risk state of a vehicle rollaway
  • Provides a pre-warning to the operator, both audibly and visually
  • Additional external warning to nearby persons to attract attention
  • Positive interaction to the vehicle park brake system to stop the roll away occurring
  • Self diagnostic and error indication to provide a functioning and reliable safety system
  • Interfaces into modern day vehicle electronic systems

How it works:

  1. The control unit uses a powerful micro processor, which continuously
    1. Monitors various inputs to determine if a vehicle is likely to roll away due to the operator leaving the cabin and not applying the parking brake.
  2. Systems are available for pneumatic and mechanical park brake types.
  3. The inputs of the MAX-SAFE™ brake system include door position sensor, seat sensor, park brake position sensor*, vehicle speed and RPM signals (for the mechanical brake type).
  4. Through continuous monitoring of all conditions the unit can determine the likelihood of the operator leaving the seat without having fully applied the park brake lever.
  5. The system also uses these sensors to make sure an application cannot occur if the vehicle is at speeds above 10 Kph. (+2).
  6. The system utilises warnings such as: visual LED display unit, audible sound internal to the vehicle and an external horn/siren.
  7. The control unit also controls the actuation device that will apply the park brake if an active trigger sequence has occurred.
