The angle sensors are something that the guys from Delta Systems are working on. They were there during the initial brake testing to see how well our Tedbrakes worked in the field so they could evaluate whether or not they would be a good fit for their angle sensors.
Our braking system is independantly operated and has No Sensors. The Tedbrake can be applied by the operator at any given time with or without a slope.
