Wabco introduced its second generation compressor series for electronically controlled air suspension systems for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.

The new high- and medium-power compressors enable its ECAS technology to achieve constant vehicle ride height even when fully loaded and various vehicle heights at different speeds. The second generation compressor series improves suspension performance, while reducing cost for original equipment manufacturers and making air suspension systems potentially more affordable for end users.

The company has further developed its ECAS technology to integrate an electronic shock absorber control (ESAC) system. In this combination, ESAC determines the most effective damping level based on load, road surface, speed, vehicle body movement and lateral acceleration. It improves vehicle stability due to a diminished roll-rate, further increasing driver and load protection.
