Six-Channel ABS System

Six-Channel ABS System Product Image
Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems is introducing its new six-channel ABS system, using six independent wheel speed sensors and six independent modulators that transmit pulsating air when a wheel locks. The company claims that vehicles with six-channel ABS have shorter stopping distances and give better brake-in-lane performance than those with four- or two-channel configurations.

Controller Area Network (CAN) Repeater and Router

Product From WABCO

WABCO Holdings Inc. has introduced two breakthrough technologies to further enhance the performance of electronic braking systems (EBS) on extra long trailers and truck-trailer combinations with two or more trailers, continuing the company’s 10-year track record of technology leadership in EBS for trailers. Available to trailer customers worldwide, WABCO’s new Controller Area Network (CAN) Repeater and Router are the industry’s first application of high-speed data transmission using CAN in-vehicle communications to improve braking performance of trailers. They significantly accelerate the transmission of the truck’s electronic braking signals to a trailer’s braking system. WABCO’s new CAN Repeater enables faster electronic transmission of braking signals in extra long trailers that are used to transport over-sized cargo such as construction materials. WABCO’s new CAN Router provides faster data transmission for truck-trailer combinations with two or more trailers equipped with EBS.

Disc Brake Rotors with LifeShield technology

Product From Webb Wheel Products

The Webb Wheel Disc Brake Rotors with LifeShield technology have an invisible protective layer across the entire rotor surface to resist corrosion beyond what traditional coatings offer. LifeShield is a unique heat treatment process that adds increased corrosion protection and provides wear resistance. The combined benefit of more corrosion protection and greater wear resistance realized with LifeShield technology means longer rotor life resulting in lower maintenance and operating costs, according to the company. These rotors are available for popular medium and heavy duty disc brake applications.

TruTurn brake drums

Product From ConMet (Consolidated Metco)

ConMet's TruTurn brake drums are constructed using a unique "turned-to-balance" machining process, which improves strength by eliminating the need for weld-on weights and balance cuts. TruTurn drums are stronger and offer other advantages such as better thermal expansion for reduced brake pulsing, and improved heat transfer, so the drum and its lining stay cool. Braking force is more evenly distributed, and vibration and brake "judder" are minimized. Test after test, in the lab and on the highway, TruTurn brake drums beat the competition, according to the company. They surpass the accepted standards of the performance drag, stopping distance and durability tests.
