WABCO_Second Generation Compressor for ECAS in Cars.jpg

WABCO offers a second-­generation compressor series for electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS) systems for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. WABCO’s 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, thereby further increasing vehicle safety and enhancing passenger comfort. WABCO’s second-geneneration compressor series improves suspension performance while reducing cost for OEMs, making air suspension systems potentially more affordable for end users. The first application of the series is the rear-axle air suspension in the new BMW 7-series.
