Haldex trailer stability system reduces potential for rollovers
May 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Haldex recently launched its TRS Trailer Rollover Stability System to reduce the potential of combination vehicle rollovers by monitoring the trailer's speed and lateral force 100 times per second.
Rollovers are costly and often result in serious injury and property damage. Reducing the possibility of rollovers is critical to driver safety and cutting costly expenses that are detrimental to the operation of your business.
The trailer-based TRS delivers superior 4S/2M ABS braking performance by adjusting for the trailer conditions during normal and ABS braking events as well as reacting if conditions indicate a rollover is imminent.
To reduce the risk of a rollover, the system uses a learning process called adaptive learning loop (ALL) technology. ALL allows the system's ECU to learn by calculating the trailer's lateral acceleration, vehicle speed, air suspension and air system pressure 100 times per second. If a rollover is imminent, TRS applies the trailer brakes to slow and stabilize the tractor/trailer unit.
Through innovative advancements, TRS is reliable and reduces installation costs:
Corrosion-resistant modulator valve section constructed with lightweight, impact-resistant EGP material
Low maintenance integral control-line and supply air filter that removes contaminants from the air system
Trailer brake lights that illuminate during rollover conditions, alerting trailing motorists of the slowing vehicle
Five auxiliary ports for optional features such as lining wear sensors and tire pressure monitoring
Separately serviceable ECU and modulator valve section reduce maintenance and replacement cost
Integrated odometer to reduce costs by eliminating the need for a trailer hub odometer
NPT ports standard, no additional adapters or service fittings required to convert from metric
Push-to-connect, weather-tight electrical connectors that require no special installation tools
