Meritor WABCO introduced fuel-saving electronic air processing technology to the North American truck market recently at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Ky. This breakthrough connectivity technology combines innovative System Saver™ 1200 Plus air dryer technology with electronic fuel-saving software stored in Meritor WABCO’s anti-lock braking system. Integration of these advanced technologies with the new connectivity solution reduces system cost for OEMs and helps fleets improve fuel efficiency. Although mechanical air processing systems for commercial vehicles have been standard technology in North America, electronic air processing technology has been delivering higher fuel economy and lower system costs to major European OEMs and fleets.

“We’ve developed a highly intelligent and cost-effective air processing system that will improve vehicle efficiency and boost fuel savings by up to 1% for North American fleets,” said Patrick Kealy, director, Compression and Braking for Meritor WABCO. “The new technology is specifically engineered to the needs of North American vehicle makers and fleets.”

Meritor WABCO reports significantly increased demand from major commercial vehicle OEMs and fleet customers for its innovative System Saver 1200 Plus air dryer technology, which was developed specifically for North American braking systems. The high-capacity dryer uses internal air for regeneration, providing a more efficient solution. The company’s air dryer system differentiates with best-in-class air drying capacity, lighter weight, lower maintenance costs and higher fuel savings. It is available on four major commercial vehicle manufacturer brands and is standard equipment for select models at three OEMs. The single electronic control unit integrates the company’s proprietary fuel-saving software with braking, air compression and air cartridge regeneration, he added.
