Brake is used to reduce the operating speed of the machinery equipment or to make it stop. It is essential for vehicles, climbing machines and many fixed equipment in their safety work. Brake tester is an experimental apparatus to measure and analyse the braking performance. Based on the PLC technology and for the purpose of testing brake shoe friction material’s life, this paper designed a virtual brake test platform. In it, inverter were used to control the motor, so that it can load automatically and ensure brake drum constant speed output; what is more, closed loop control system were used to control the brake shoe, so that the cylinder pressure keeps stable in the process of dynamic braking.
