Did you know that there are two types of wear sensors for brake calipers?

March 10, 2022

Wear sensors are a very important element for the brake caliper, since they are in charge of indicating when it is necessary to perform brake pad maintenance.

In calipers such as those from the manufacturer Knorr-Bremse, there are two types of wear sensors: 

  • The end-of-pad sensor: It comprises 2 wires and it indicates when the pad is about to be worn.
  • The continuous sensor: It comprises 3 wires and provides progressive information on the wear percentage of the brake pad.

Both sensors share the same physical appearance, although they do not operate in the same way internally. Then, how can we distinguish them?

  • Visually, taking into account the number of wires within them.
  • Functionally, by checking with Jaltest WST device all the wear sensors assembled in the calipers. We show you how here! 
  • Technical information about the characteristics of wear sensors, available at the website of Cojali Parts.
Discover at our online catalogue all the wear sensors available for your brake calipers!
