WABCO electronically controlled air suspension technology introduced in China

WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE:WBC) announced that it expanded its electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS) technology – now branded OptiRide™ – to the truck market in China.

China National Heavy Truck Corporation (CNHTC), one of China’s largest producers of heavy-duty trucks, has adopted WABCO’s OptiRide in series production on multiple truck platforms across a range of axle configurations.

OptiRide enables lifting and lowering of the vehicle and provides automatic load transfer to mitigate axle overload.  OptiRide offers an optional function for axle load monitoring that automatically warns the driver in case of overload, which can further lower total cost of vehicle ownership.
