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).
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.
Available in several configurations – fixed with single or dual wheels, self steered or actively steered. Axle load: 7.5, 9.5, 10 or 15 tonnes.
Available in fixed and actively steered variants for both tractors and rigids. Axle load: 4.5, 7.5 or 9 tonnes.
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.
