Bludot Inc. of North America — a South Bend, Ind.-based supplier of packaged brake systems for custom trailer manufacturers, distributors and dealers — has announced a variety of brake systems designed for commercial applications. These systems are designed for use on multi-axle trailers with heavy load capability being towed by vehicles ranging in size from full-size pickup trucks to commercial trucks and semi tractors. The new commercial brake systems are available with various actuation system options: Electric/hydraulic, vacuum/hydraulic and air/hydraulic actuating systems all are available, as is a straight air system for use on heavy-duty vehicles and trailers.

Air brake systems also feature an Antilock Braking System, a subsystem designed to modulate the braking force at the vehicle wheels to prevent the wheels from sliding. The ABS system monitors the rotational speed of the individual wheels and automatically modulates brake pressure to give the most available braking force without the loss of wheel rotation and the resultant loss of control and tire flat spotting. ABS allows for maximum effort braking on slippery surfaces to bring the vehicle to a safe, controlled stop in the shortest possible distance.
