The Simple Solution for Tractor and Trailer Electrical and Air
The Lite-Check, 137 Truck and Trailer Output Tester is the simple to use tool that provides technicians with accurate output readings for commercial trucks, trailers, and dollies. Simply attach the included 7-way cable and gladhands to the output receptacle of the vehicle and technicians are presented with accurate air and electrical readings via the LCD 4.75” X 1.75” screen.
Electrical Output Testing
Since the 137 Truck and Trailer Output Tester is powered by the vehicle it’s plugged into, it has an initial automatic pass/fail electrical test. If the tester fails to power on, the tractor, trailer, or dolly does not have sufficient electrical voltage to power the tester or a trailer ABS ECU.
While attached, and with sufficient electrical voltage, the tester provides up to 15 amperes of load to the incoming system simulating the lighting system of a trailer. This provides easy testing for weak or malfunctioning breakers in the vehicle. Additionally, the tester triggers the in-cab ABS lamp just as a faulty ABS ECU would. This provides an immediate test of the operability of the lamp without the need for a trailer. Accurate amperage and voltage output is displayed on the LCD display and technicians can use this data to identify possible electrical loss when connecting multiple trailers and dollies.
Air Output Testing
The 137 Truck and Trailer Output Tester also provides easy testing of tractor, trailer and dolly air systems. Equipped with two easily read pressure gauges which accurately display air pressure output. These gauges have highlighted areas to show the ideal working zones.
The emergency pressure gauge also has a reading of 55 PSI highlighted to identify when the Air Warning System should be triggered. Issues with the Air Warning System may be identified if during an emergency air loss test the alarm is not sounded by the time the pressure reading has dropped to 55 PSI point.
