The ELSA family of brakes utilizes modular construction, which means the internal mechanisms can be matched with a series of validated bridges and carriers to suit any wheel/axle combination. Bridges and carriers are also available for application on wheels and hubs for U.S.-built axles and vehicles.
"The ELSA family of braking products is the strongest, most robust and reliable that we have developed in the 30 years that Meritor has been manufacturing air disc brakes," Knoop said. "Most importantly, this development adds weight-optimized variants for increased fuel economy."
