To examine and monitor railway vehicle break status Szakálfém LLC. has developed and manufactures pneumatic break display devices. The dual-position display device can indicate several operating status:
  • indicates the disengaged or engaged status of the break cylinders with spring force storage,
  • indicates the disengaged or engaged status of the break cylinders,
