Kenworth makes Bendix ABS-6 standard
Mar 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Kenworth Truck Co announced that the Bendix ABS-6 system is now standard on Kenworth Class 8 trucks with air brake systems.
The design of the ABS-6 standard system improves serviceability and serves as a platform for new features. For example, Kenworth now offers Bendix ABS-6 Advanced with ESP (Electronic Stability Program) as an option on selected Kenworth T600, T800, and W900 tractor configurations.
According to Bendix, key benefits of the ABS-6 Advanced with ESP include superior traction systems. The system helps stabilize a vehicle during under- and over-steer driving situations and may help avoid a rollover. ABS-6 Advanced with ESP is designed to detect a vehicle's impending loss of stability and automatically intervenes by selectively applying tractor and trailer brakes, as well as by dethrottling the engine.
