Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems has entered into an agreement with International Truck and Engine Corporation to supply its new hydraulic power brake system as standard equipment on select models of the truck maker's medium-duty models.
The new Meritor WABCO Hydraulic Power Brake (HPB), which is the next generation of the company's hydraulic actuation and anti-lock braking system (ABS), provides full-power braking performance functions and electronic brake force distribution (EBD). EBD automatically adjusts the drive axle brake pressure to achieve more balanced braking for the vehicle. Optional automatic traction control (ATC) is also available with the package.
HPB is available immediately on International's RXT, 3200, 4200 4x4 and 4000 Series 4x2 models.
