Brakes

EBS (Electronically-controlled Brake System) provides superior response, performance and brake feel, while providing access to a number of handy features. EBS is now available both for disc brakes and Z-cam drum brakes (for a selected range of axle configurations and chassis heights). Upgrade your brake system by adding the EBS Medium package or any of the additional options. EBS is standard on all specifications.

 

EBS medium

In addition to the EBS Standard package, EBS Medium adds the following features:

 

EBS status control 

EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool.

 

Lining wear analysis

Brake lining warning – calculates the remaining mileage available with the current brake linings (only for disc brakes).

 

Automatic parking brake release

The parking brake is released when the driver pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is selected (only I-Shift gearbox).

 

 

Additional options:

In addition to the program packages there are the following options:

 

Stretch brake

Enables the driver to request pulse braking of the trailer. The brake is then automatically activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised.

 

ESC (Electronic Stability Control)

The brake stability system applies the brakes individually on each wheel, thereby providing stability for the entire vehicle combination and counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer swing. ESC fulfills the legislation of Electronic Vehicle Stability Control, and is available for 2- and 3-, 4- and 5-axle vehicles.

 

 

Volvo Dynamic Steering

Active steering system with torque overlay. Delivers more steering force at low speeds, reduces steering kicks and keeps the steering wheel straight forward when braking on split friction. The steering wheel returns automatically to neutral position both when driving forward and when reversing. Volvo Dynamic Steering is now available for all axle configurations, including trucks with dual front axles. It’s also available in combination with individual front suspension.

Pusher axles
Available in fixed and actively steered variants for both tractors and rigids. Axle load: 4.5, 7.5 or 9 tonnes.


Tag axles
Available in several configurations – fixed with single or dual wheels, self steered or actively steered. Axle load: 7.5, 9.5 or 10 tonnes.

Tandem Axle Lift

Allows the rearmost drive axle on the tandem bogie to be disengaged and raised, to reduce fuel consumption and turning radius. By pushing a button on the dashboard, the driver can raise the axle when the truck is unloaded. When the truck is loaded, the axle automatically lowers itself and engages. Tandem Axle Lift is available for 6×4 and 8×4 configurations (with a tandem bogie) equipped with disc brakes.
