pendulum brake
Explanation:
I hazarded a guess here, based on "pendulum" and found lots of pages with what sounds like the appropriate term. Here are a couple of examples.

1 -http://www.rversonline.org/ArtBrakeControl.html

The second generation of brake controls are inertia/electric operated. A leveling sensor or pendulum inside the brake control will move forward as braking of the tow vehicle is applied, thus sending electric current to the brake magnets to apply the trailer brakes. This pendulum must be properly adjusted to give it's best performance for braking. Most concerns I have had of this style from my customers is the sometimes complex procedure for set-up and adjustment of the control, to get the best braking available. These controls are sensitive to installation applications. A "touch pad" on the control will apply the brakes manually if required.

MAT23 Compact Charpy Impact Tester

Features
· Two-handed release mechanism
· Anti-friction ball bearings
· Integral safety guard
· Simple operation
· Large direct reading scale to 50 Joules
· Two year warranty
Description
The MAT23 is a compact 50 Joule Charpy impact tester suitable for non-ferrous and low-carbon steels as well as plastics. The pendulum is mounted on anti-friction ball bearings ensuring frictional loss within 0.5% of the maximum impact energy. The machine is fitted with an integral safety guard as standard and the operator must use both hands to release the pendulum. A pendulum brake is also fitted. In the elevated position, the pendulum possesses a definite potential energy capacity which is converted to kinetic energy during its swing. The pendulum achieves maximum kinetic energy at its lowest swing position, just prior to contact with the test specimen. The impact energy absorbed by the specimen during rupture is measured as the difference between the height of drop before rupture and the height of rise after rupture of the test specimen. It is read on the dial scale which is calibrated to 50 Joules in 0.5 Joule graduations.
