Haldex adds ILAS E Air Suspension Valve
Apr 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Haldex Commercial Vehicle Systems announces the addition of the ILAS E Air Suspension Valve. This valve can control the position of lift axles through an electrical connection. A 12-volt power supply is needed to keep the lift axles in the raised position.
When power is removed, the lift axles will automatically be lowered. This can be simply controlled via an electrical switch. When coupled with the Haldex TRS System, the lift axles can be controlled to raise and lower automatically as the air suspension reacts to changing loads in the trailer. The ILAS E/TRS system can be adjusted to react at various pressure conditions, making the system versatile for single or multiple lift axle trailers.
The ILAS E simplifies the lift axle system with four push-to-connect fittings and a standard DIN electrical connection. Traditional lift axles systems are often complex with multiple components and numerous fittings. The Haldex design combines all the functionality into an easy-to-use system.
The lift axle will raise or drop automatically with the unloading or loading of the vehicle. This provides to the end user operational savings, since the lift axle and wheels are not subjected to wear when the vehicle is empty.
