No Brake-Temperature displayed - Remains 0.0

Recommended Posts

Hi,Since i replaced my video card on monday with a newer one, the brake temperature remains at 0.0 regardless how hard i hit the brakes. Before i changed the card, it was working properly - I even had to sent the bird to maintenance since i was interested to see how the steel brakes perform when they're hot. Anyone else has or had this issue? This is currently the only issue i have with the NGX - No CTDs, no other glitches, just "cool" brakes which don't get warm/hot.


Cheers,

I haven't seen any rise in brake temperature either... is it associated with having failures active or not? Andrew

Speaking for myself - I have the maintenance-based failures activated - But none active during the recent flights.

I was going to do a couple more flights and then ask the same question. My brake temps stay 0. No changes in hardware. I don't have the maintenance-bases services activated yet. jos denisEBBR

0.0 is about 350 Degrees. Might you not exeed that if you use only ABS 1 and reverse thrust. Best regards John

Time for me to look at the manual again me thinks... Andrew EDIT: OK, so it is a relative scale of 0.0 - 9.9... Does anyone by chance know what the absolute temperatures for the relative scale are? Thanks A

Hi John,

That's why i wrote:

Autobrake 3, no reverse + manual breaking - or w/o autobrake and completely manual (quite hard when i tried it yesterday night on my last leg), the value sticks to 0.0 - And i guess AB3 w/o reverse / manual (hard) braking should heat up the brakes enough to get at least 0.1 right? But doesn't happen on my bird. As said, happened before i changed the video card - Since then it doesn't anymore. And since then i also used to brake more aggressive to check the display. Before it was mostly AB1 or 2. Edit: This goes for steel and carbon - tried both yesterday.

Cheers,

How long after barking are you checking the brake temps? And what are the ambient conditions? temp etc? These are all major factors with regards to heat soaking of the brakes. Tawanda

+1 my autobrakes stay at 0.0 even after waiting to see if there was a delay no change what so ever, i usually use autobrake 2 where posible and i originally had temps about 1.6 after landing now its just 0.0 :S

I think you have serviced based failures for breaks to get hot, don't you? Im not sure, I've only stressed my breaks with the service based failures on, so do it with this configuration and it should work.
