LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Haldex launched the new Haldex EB+ TRS Roll Stability System at the Mid-America Trucking Show recently.
The system reduces the possibilities of combination vehicle rollovers by monitoring the trailer’s centre of gravity, company officials said.
Equipped with information regarding the trailer’s lateral acceleration, pressure from the air suspension and wheel speed, the EB+ TRS determines when a trailer is approaching its rollover threshold. If it is approaching the threshold, the trailer brakes are applied as required to slow the vehicle and improve its stability.
Company officials said EB+ TRS provides low installation costs and high reliability through the following:
* PLC for diagnostics and communications with towing vehicle * Push-to-connect, weather-tight electrical connectors that require no tools * Fewer electrical connections with integrated pressure transducers and lateral accelerometer * Expandable architecture to easily upgrade auxiliary capabilities * Electronic Odometer capability * Diagnostics through an Info Centre tool * PC diagnostic capability * Compatible with all towing vehicles, complying with FMVSS 121
The EB+ TRS system reacts to pneumatic or digital signals from the towing vehicle, including signals from an air suspension equipped trailer. The system electronically processes the signals and regulates pressure to the brake chambers in response to those signals. Meeting FMVSS 121 requirements and manufactured to survive the toughest conditions, the Haldex EB+ TRS is backed by an ABS warranty.
