WABCO Holdings Inc. introduced its electronic trailer air suspension control (eTASC) system this week at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Expo in Hanover, Germany.
According to WABCO, eTASC is the first system in the global trailer market that integrates conventional suspension functions and electronic suspension functions into a single offering.
“WABCO’s new eTASC significantly advances several air suspension functions on trailers, further extending WABCO’s technology leadership toward safer, more efficient operation of all types of trailers,” says Nick Rens, vice president, trailer systems and aftermarket for WABCO. “WABCO’s OptiLevel module shows how trailer fleets can boost fuel economy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. It also increases driver comfort and effectiveness, while further improving vehicle safety, through innovations in air management.”
