Meritor Inc. announces the launch of the lightweight, single-piston EX+ LS air disc brake, a next-generation braking solution designed and engineered for linehaul and trailer applications.
- Built with exceptional taper wear control
- Designed and validated to same taper wear criteria as twin-piston brake
- Large-diameter, integrated piston and pusher plate reduce taper wear by increasing stability to deliver evenly distributed braking forces across brake surface
- Adjuster mechanism is based on proven EX+ air disc brake architecture to offer reliable and consistent brake performance
- Comes standard with MA9300 N-level proprietary friction
- Optional positive pad retraction is designed with goal of maintaining friction couple running clearance to extend pad life and reduce brake drag
- Optional pad wear warning indicator aids in service predictability
