EBS with trailer components. Coupled. Connected.

In hazardous situations, the vehicle and any trailers it is towing need to react quickly. Trailer products like the electronic braking system from Knorr-Bremse help make sure they can.

Best friends – A great couple

Trailers and trucks are best friends – they practically cling to each other and love to be coupled together. And to make sure that the trailer does just what its leader, the tractor does at all times, they are mechanically coupled too and their electronic systems are connected. Semi-trailers carry an enormous amount of weight, and drivers need to be able to brake this load in a controlled way, even in critical situations. They need to react quickly and leave enough distance, without losing traction. Modern technology supports drivers in doing so, with electronic braking systems for trailers.

TEBS for trailers – Take a brake!

In contrast to a semi-trailer, a tractor unit with a trailer coupling and full trailer has two articulated joints. This additional freedom results in a large number of different effective forces. Knorr-Bremse was the first provider in the world to take on this challenge and develop an electronic stability program for articulated vehicles. With the complete trailer electronic braking system, Knorr-Bremse offers innovative solutions for trailers in any combination.
