ArvinMeritor introduced new 17.5 inch, 19.5 inch and 22.5 inch members of its Meritor ELSA air disc brake family.

These new models allow it to cover a full range of vocational and duty cycle demands, the company said. They are known as the EX family in North America.

The brakes offer advantages of the modular concept that’s inherent in the ELSA family, the company said.

By selecting the correct housing and matching it with the appropriate bridge and carrier, ArvinMeritor said it can engineer an optimum solution for any disc brake application. Very high part commonality across the entire range ensures that all of its previous engineering experience and in-service performance confidence carries through to these new products.

The modular approach allows the company to support customers around the world through local assembly plants supported by optimized global sourcing and logistics, the company said.

Notable additions to the family include the ELSA175S and ELSA195S with

single tappet actuation and the lightweight ELSA225L.
