About Brake Wear Sensors
Brake wear sensors are one of the most simple yet vital pieces of safety equipment on your vehicle. Keeping you in the know when it comes to maintaining your brakes, brake sensors can be incredibly important in taking care of one of the most important parts of your car.
How Brake Wear Sensors Work
Worn brake pads can reduce the levels of friction they generate when they press against your brake rotors, reducing your stopping power down to unsafe levels and increasing the amount your brake rotors have to work in order to safely stop your car. Brake wear sensors are designed to help you avoid this before it becomes a significant problem, attaching to your brake pads to ensure that you are alerted when your brake pads are worn too much. Some brake wear sensors work electronically, where as some are mechanical and simply create a high pitched noise to alert you when they're exposed to contact with your brake rotors.
Why Brake Wear Sensors Can Improve Your Safety
All in all, worn brake pads can make stopping your vehicle slower and less safe, something every driver should look to avoid for obvious reasons. Such is the safety benefit of brake wear sensors that many government bodies and a growing contingent of vehicle manufacturers are actually demanding that brake wear sensors be fitted as standard with every set of brake pads made as original equipment for a vehicle.
