TechASSIST: Brake Pad Wear Sensors

Brake Pad Wear Sensor Warning Light

The brake pad wear sensor is a simple component that plays a critical role in vehicle safety. In this bulletin we look at the brake pad wear sensor in depth.

There is a multitude of factors that affect how quickly brake pads wear. Varying driving conditions, speeds and pad compounds make it difficult to predict the lifespan of the brake pad. What we do know,is that below a certain level of wear, the effectiveness of the brake pad reduces significantly. The challenge faced by vehicle manufacturers is how to alert the driver once brake pads reach this point.

There is a multitude of factors that affect how quickly brake pads wear. Varying driving conditions, speeds and pad compounds make it difficult to predict the lifespan of the brake pad. What we do know, is that below a certain level of wear, the effectiveness of the brake pad reduces significantly. Brake pad wear sensors alert the driver once brake pads reach this point. Our new range has a focus on modern two-stage brake pad wear sensors seen most commonly on German marques.
