Electronic Levelling Control ELC. For every level.
Control and adjust the vehicle level with Electronic Levelling Control. ELC systems from Knorr-Bremse for better driving comfort, efficiency and safety.
A whole new level!
Reach all new levels with Electronic Levelling Control, or ELC for short. It allows you to control and adjust the vehicle level and to control lift axles for vehicles with air suspension. To do so, distance sensors measure the distance between the chassis and axle beams. The goal is to move the vehicle to a certain level, regardless of its load. Knorr-Bremse offers custom-tailored, innovative systems for trucks, buses and trailers based on over 25 years of experience with ELC on commercial vehicles. For better comfort, efficiency and safety – for drivers and passengers alike.
ELC – Advantages for drivers: better comfort
Electronic Levelling Control delivers better comfort while driving and improves vehicle handling as well. Drivers of commercial vehicles with air suspension also have an easier time on the loading ramp and can use ELC to optimally align their vehicles with the ramp. Electronic Levelling Control protects the vehicle and the load.
ELC – Advantages for passengers: easier access
The kneeling function lowers the vehicle. This development is used with buses, in particular. The kneeling function lowers the level of the bus on the entry side, making it easier for all passengers of differing needs, to get in and out.
ELC – Advantages for commercial vehicles: economical
From trucks to buses and trailers – electronic levelling control helps minimize costs. Controlling compressed air electronically optimizes air consumption. Less air is required, which saves costs. Permanently adjusting the vehicle level and controlling the lift axles allows the vehicle to move in a more homogeneous fashion. This ensures more even wear on other components, such as tires. Individually available replacement parts to the Electronic Levelling Control system from Knorr-Bremse ensure repairs are economical as well.
