Haldex Introduces Intelligent Trailer Control Module for Increased Functionality and Faster Communication

Haldex, a leading global manufacturer of air brake systems for trucks, trailers and buses, is pleased to introduce its Intelligent Trailer Control Module (ITCM), expanding the capability of trailer ABS systems to include faster communication and increased functionality.

With two protocols of communication: Power Line Carrier (PLC) Protocol and Controller Area Network (CAN) Port, the ITCM offers multiple auxiliary ports where additional devices can be connected:

  • Trailer Roll Stability Control like the Haldex Stability Module – a plug-in auxiliary device for rollover control and automatic braking.
  • Trailer Lift Axle Control, the Haldex ILAS® E offers a simple design that controls the position of the lift axles during operation.
  • Switch Control, which acts as an on/off switch to provide an action determined by pressures, temperature, power voltage and other inputs.
  • External System Monitoring provides monitoring and reporting on non-Haldex systems such as tire pressure monitoring systems, and integration into the fleets GPS system.

Its expanded diagnostics offers several ways to communicate to retrieve codes, set up additional devices, track trailer brake activity and other data related inputs and outputs. The self-configurable and flash upgradeable ITCM ECU is compatible with 1M, 2M and 3M ABS configurations.

“The new ITCM is one more step that we are taking in the technology arena to provide more flexibility and control to our fleet customers,” said Walt Frankiewicz, Senior Vice President, North America Sales, Haldex. “We continue to expand our ABS and air brake systems to increase functionality.”
