Meritor is offering optional hydraulic actuation on all ELSA disc brakes for applications that require hydraulic disc brake variants.
The traditional mechanical, pneumatically operated brake housing is replaced by a hydraulic single- or twin-piston variant. The bridge, carrier and slide pin arrangements remain the same. Pads are available with 107-226 sq.cm. pad areas.
The new option covers brakes for wheels measuring between 17.5 and 25 inches. Rotor diameters vary from 324 to 500 mm.
