webBikeWorld Ohmics MotoBrake Brake Light Review

Discussion in 'Motorcycling News' at netrider.net.au started by NetriderBot, May 14, 2015.

  1. The Ohmics brake light is a palm-sized module with integrated sensors and a microprocessor.

    It has a bright eye-catching 40-LED output screen and it is programmable by the owner to display various LED light patterns.

    The user-definable programs include different light patterns for deceleration and braking or brake or deceleration-only modes.

    When the motorcycle slows due to throttle action or engine braking or downshifting or any combination thereof, the reduction in speed or deceleration is measured by the Ohmics system.

    The light will then display an early and very conspicuous three-stage LED output sequence proportional to the deceleration and speed of the motorcycle.

    This allows the rider to maintain a safer riding environment by providing an early and very conspicuous warning or reactive notification to following traffic of the motorcycle’s slowing.

    All of this is done without brake activation.

    When the brakes are engaged, the Ohmics light instantly switches to brake mode.

    This provides a warning flash followed by a programmed output sequence.

    And if turned on during programming, a distinctive horizontal centre row of white LEDs blink twice every 0.5 seconds (at 20Hz) providing an excellent marker especially at a stop.
