WABCO Holdings Inc. has introduced the Intelligent Anti-Lock Braking System, iABS, its anti-lock braking system for commercial trailers.
WABCO iABS is part of the WABCO Global Intelligent Braking Platform that enhances trailer system functionality and supports the strategies of trailer manufacturers to increase standardization and modularity, the company says.
Since iABS supports 5V Controller Area Network (CAN) communication ports and Generic Input/Output (GIO) ports, every single trailer can become intelligent and connected to a telematics unit without a system upgrade. The new device is designed for all trailer types, offering tank- and frame-mounting options.
The Intelligent Braking Platform combines iABS and iEBS (intelligent electronic braking system) on one common platform, making the braking systems applicable and easily interchangeable in all countries and regions worldwide.
