LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Haldex announced new additions to its product line at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show, including the latest generation of its trailer stability system.
The second generation version of the company’s Trailer Rollover Stability (TRS) system is compatible with trailers using one or more axles with air suspensions. It detects when a rollover is imminent and then deploys the brakes to mitigate the situation.
Features of the second generation stability system include: a trailer brake lamp illumination during the roll event; an integral control port air filter; integral NPT ports; and a Fleet+ optional diagnostic program.
Haldex also expanded its product line to include a new ABS replacement kit. The “all-inclusive” kit includes all the parts required to replace an outdated ABS system quickly and easily, the company announced. Nearly any ABS system can be replaced with the latest Haldex ABS system using the kit, according to Haldex officials.
Haldex has also added a ILAS III lift axle valve to its product line. The new valve is used for lowering and lifting one or more axles, depending on the load applied to the vehicle, the company explained. There are fully-automatic and manual lift versions of the valve available.
Also new to Haldex is a new trailer brake control valve, which the company claimed is the only spring brake control valve in the market that provides optimum protection against the corrosive effects of magnesium chloride and other elements. The Haldex Trailer Brake Control Valve is mounted on the trailer reservoir, where it reacts to a signal from the trailer supply line to charge the tank and to control the spring brake section of double diaphragm spring brakes to provide parking and emergency braking, the company announced.
