Link’s ROI Cabmate Semi-Active Cab Suspension with the company’s intelligent Road Optimized Innovation technology now is available as an aftermarket kit for the Freightliner Cascadia, Kenworth T680, International LT Series, Peterbilt 579 and Volvo VNL and VNR Series. The suspension is engineered to adapt to surface and load conditions through its electronic control unit (ECU) that uses proprietary algorithms to interpret a constant data stream from an accelerometer monitoring both the cab’s motion and a position sensor measuring its position and velocity relative to the frame, adjusting shock absorber stiffness for optimized ride comfort, improved cab stability and reduced noise and vibration. An electronic height control feature does not fill or exhaust air in response to suspension motion, minimizing air consumption, and the system also helps counteract wind shear and turbulence from other vehicles. It operates on less than 10 watts of power and is designed to be ready for CAN bus integration with built-in standalone diagnostics capabilities.
