Belgium-based global technology company, WABCO, recently introduced its Intelligent Brake Interlock at the American Trucking Associations’ 2017 Management Conference & Exhibition (MCE 2017) in Orlando, Florida.
According to WABCO, the Intelligent Brake Interlock can improve the safety of tank trailers that haul hazardous materials or are equipped with cryogenic equipment, using proprietary technologies to ensure the vehicle does not move during loading and unloading. The system reportedly monitors vehicle speed as well as the position switch and locks the foundation brakes electronically.
“We are excited to showcase WABCO’s Intelligent Brake Interlock at MCE 2017 and to offer an advanced solution to improve the safety of tank trailers in the region,” said WABCO President – Americas, Jon Morrison.
“As the latest addition to WABCO’s Intelligent Trailer Program of advanced trailer technologies, this innovative system further differentiates WABCO as a technology leader in North America and around the globe,” he said.
