Link Manufacturing, Ltd., announces a new, improved and compact integrated electronic air kit for the UltraRide chassis air suspension system.
Link says the UltraRide is designed to improve the ride and handling of light- and medium-duty work trucks, buses and emergency service vehicles. The small air kit footprint, less than 2 ft. of frame space, provides the fastest ride-height recovery in the industry and offers up to 150psi output, yet has a noise level similar to normal conversation, the company adds.
Link says the new electronic air kit offers several key new features for added operational convenience, starting with diagnostics. The user-friendly diagnostic software helps assess and inform of any problems. Added blink codes to the warning lights, enable diagnosis of error and fault codes, and the integrated diagnostics communications connects via USB into and Windows PC.
Additionally, the air kit allows two modes of operation. Link says Ambulance Mode includes a System Enable Signal that prevents the suspension from kneeling when the vehicle is in gear. The Tower-Hauler Mode ignores the System Enable Signal and allows the vehicle to kneel even if the vehicle is moving.
The new kit will mount in same location, but includes improved frame mounting brackets for easier installation, Link says, and is available beginning April 1, 2015.
