Link introduces ROI Cabmate aftermarket kits

Link Manufacturing has released aftermarket kits for its ROI Cabmate Semi-Active Cab Suspension.

The kits are designed and engineered to replace original, factory-installed cab suspensions with Link’s “intelligent” cab suspensions featuring Road Optimized Innovation (ROI) technology, the company says. The kits target sleeper models including the Freightliner Cascadia, Kenworth T680, International LT Series, Peterbilt 579 and the Volvo VNL and VNR Series.

The ROI Cabmate’s electronic control unit (ECU) interprets a constant data stream from an accelerometer monitoring the motion of the cab, and a position sensor measuring the position and velocity of the cab relative to the frame, the company says. Link adds that the system responds “at speeds beyond human perception,” adjusting shock absorber stiffness with computer-controlled precision.

Link’s ROI Cabmate aftermarket kits are now available and can be ordered through local OEM dealers.
