Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems has entered into an agreement with International Truck and Engine Corp 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 antilock braking system, 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 now on International's RXT, 3200, 4200 4×4, and 4000 Series 4×2 models.
