New mounting options for Truck-Lite’s Road Ready

Truck-Lite has unveiled an updated master control unit for its Road Ready trailer telematics system, creating new options for those who want to use the system on chassis, flatbeds and more.

The new unit measures just 13.25 x 5.5 inches, with an optional solar panel measuring 8.25 x 14.25 inches. A combined solar panel and control unit measured 11.5 x 21.24 inches.

Hard-wired versions can be connected to the blue line through a trailer’s nose box.

The Road Ready system gives fleets the power to monitor third-party components from the likes of Stemco, Haldex, Air Weigh, Hendrickson, Purkeys, and Stemco, delivering real-time information when issues emerge.

Equipped trailers will even deliver the information when untethered, drawing on a battery to run up to 60 days without a charge.
