Play detector PD2502 series

The pneumatic PD2502 play detector (2 platforms) is designed to check quickly and efficiently most steering and suspension components of passenger cars and light trucks.

Quick, Simple & Effective!

The air powered PD2502 consists of two pneumatically driven platforms, one for the left wheel and one for the right wheel. Each platform is actuated by two pneumatic cylinders and can perform two independent movements. One movement pushes the wheel backwards and forwards. The second movement pushes the wheels to the left and to the right sides with a partial turn. Only with these two movements you simulate the road forces that act on the suspension and steering components in a turn.

The play in the components is visually checked with the low-voltage control lamp. Two switches on the lamp control the movements of the platforms.

The surface mount model PD2502E can be mounted on any lift with runways, e.g. a 4-post lift. Both platforms are provided with an anti-slip layer underneath and can be installed on the lift runways without fixing. The unit can also be mounted on a scissors lift and parallelogram lift. In the latter case we recommend to link both runways.

The flush mount model PD2502BI can be installed on both sides of an inspection pit.
