Offered on the entire line of Great Dane trailers, Meritor WABCO trailer ABS offers customers advanced monitoring and control capabilities in various system configurations designed to meet the needs of virtually any trailer application providing performance, safety and low cost of ownership.

Enhanced Easy-Stop™ ABS offerings from Meritor WABCO include basic, standard and premium options:

• 2S/1M Basic provides increased directional stability while meeting FMVSS-121 requirements related to vehicle braking control and stability. The 2-sensor/1-ABS relay valve system is recommended for converter dolly and trailer applications.

• 2S/2M Standard delivers independent control on each side of the vehicle for extra control and directional stability with increased protection against tire flatspotting. The 2-sensor/2- ABS relay valve system is recommended for single and tandem axle trailer applications.

• 4S/2M Premium provides optimal braking control and stability and protection against tire flatspotting. Offered with a choice of 2 or 4 sensors and a third relay valve on 4-sensor models (can be configured to 2S/2M, 4S/2M or 4S/3M systems), the recommended applications for this system include tandem axle trailers, multi-axle, or full trailers.

Common on 2S/2M and 4S/2M Meritor WABCO systems is an integrated dual modulator valve design that is lighter in weight and more compact. In addition, individual replaceable electronic control unit (ECU) and ABS modulator valves save maintenance time and reduce cost on all versions of the company's ABS offerings.

Troubleshooting for Meritor WABCO Enhanced Easy-Stop ABS for trailers is available through blink codes or in a more comprehensive solution with the manufacturer's PC-based TOOLBOX software which displays both active and stored system faults as well as the corresponding repair instructions. In addition to diagnostics capabilities, the software enables access to trailer, system and component data, trailer maintenance information, and stores a predetermined service interval based on an electronic odometer.
