Doctor Air-Brake

Stand: RA14

Having specialised in Heavy Truck Air Brake Systems for many years Doctor Air Brake was born in the early 90’s as a result of fleet customers asking Jeff Lowe the founder for technical support on ABS & Air Brake fault finding. Demand for this was so strong that Jeff soon switched his full focus onto Braking & Electronic Systems Diagnostics, on both Trucks & Trailers.

During these early years Jeff was unhappy with the diagnostic equipment available at the time and decided to design his own, to both help himself and the now growing team solving everyday problems with ABS, MOT failures and general HGV maintenance. This range of equipment was aimed at making everything a “one man” operation speeding up fault finding, so Doctor Air Brake could establish itself as a leader in this 'niche' technology support area. 

Doctor Air Brakes first design was the Trailer-Check which focused on providing a completely portable 24v power box for Trailer Electrical Systems. This was soon followed by combining Wabco & Haldex Code Readers into one easy to use package and this diagnostics development continued up to 2006, when the decision was made to invest heavily in Code-Talk a combined diagnostic fault code reader specifically design for trailer ABS & EBS braking systems. Robin Arnold an Electronics designer and Jeff worked many nights to simulate faults in various ECU’s and record diagnostic messages logged. These were then decoded and displayed in plain English on a small LCD display, as each make and variant was added the code built up into a library totalling 24,000 lines of code and the project was completed in June 2009, but development continued beyond that as new ECU’s were released by all 3 Global Brake Manufacturers
