Braking system specialist, Knorr-Bremse Australia, has obtained type-approval for an Onboard Mass (OBM) system according to Transport Certification Australia (TCA).
The Category A type-approved OBM system from Knorr-Bremse Australia, which is used by industry to measure the mass of axle groups and to calculate a vehicle’s Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM), is expected to be available late 2021.
“For more than 115 years, we have pioneered to deliver cutting-edge and globally-successful brake control systems for both rail and commercial vehicles,” said Knorr-Bremse Australia Trailer Business Manager, Gareth Lawless.
“Innovation is one of our key core values and forms part of our company’s DNA, so attaining TCA type-approval of our OBM system is yet another significant milestone for our company.
“For our Australian technical team that developed our OBM system, it is a wonderful achievement.”
