The G457 hydraulic play detector has
been designed as a VOSA MOT approved product capable of assessing the
steering and suspension components of Class IV / VL / VII motor vehicles.
The G457 is suitable for use either in a pit and some hoist situations for
existing mot stations who wish to apply for OPTL (One Person Test Lane)
status or of course as part of an automated test lane which GETECH can
supply as an mot package.
The G457 is controlled using a wired remote control containing an
inspection torch and integrated controls that control a single plate play
detector capable of operating in the lateral and rotational directions.
During the test procedure, the play detector operates through a complete
cycle (side to side and then rotationally) which enables the MOT tester to
concentrate on observing the effect rather than controlling the play
At all times during the operation cycle the hand lamp remains illuminated
and by design, the forces exerted by the play detector are less than those
exerted by the road surface,
which makes it impossible to damage the
vehicle as it is being inspected whilst at the same time exceeding the VOSA
force input requirement.
As with all GETECH products the G457 Hydraulic Play Detector comes with a 5
year warranty and an optional service contract to maintain it is available.
The unit requires a three phase, 16 amp electrical supply and, like other
GETECH products, is usually is available from stock.
