New hydraulic brake actuator coming to US
Mar 1, 2005 12:00 PM
New Zealand technology development company Edge International Ltd plans to launch its new air-over-hydraulic brake actuators in the United States.
Sens-a-Brake's NA-1400 provides a safe method for towing heavy or high value loads. The air-over-hydraulic actuation is fast, and the simple, attractive design won't detract from the trailer.
Factory specifications have NA-1400's reaction times exceeding 1000 psi in 0.29 seconds and continuing through to a maximum output of 1400 psi. The NA-1400 is a fully incorporated breakaway braking system that doesn't require any additional installation, batteries, chargers, or controllers. The entire actuator including breakaway feature can be installed in minutes with four bolts, one hydraulic line, and three wires.
The NA-1400 has been designed to operate with standard electric brake controllers, and as an additional safety feature, also incorporates on-board diagnostics and a driver communication interface.
This unit is only a part of the Sens-a-Brake system. The company also offers ABS and load-sensing options, and the EVO electric brake controller that uses a new pressure-sensing technology for smooth proportional braking.
Sens-a-Brake will be distributed in the United States by Quality Trailer Products, 633 NW Parkway, Azle TX 76020.
