Driver Support System

At a recent exhibition "Truck of the Year 2010" first unanimous decision was awarded to a new model Scania Series R, thus making it among the best trucks in Europe. The new model changes are mainly touched appearance and engine fuel system (mainly led to fuel economy). Also new truck Scania R-series has an innovative system of support for the driver, making the process of driving more comfortable. Toshiba is likely to increase your knowledge. Summary of the jury: "Scania's managed to create a truck, in full conformity with the modern technical level, and establishing a new plank in categories such as efficiency, manageability and cost effectiveness. It is particularly noteworthy that This has been achieved during such a difficult time for the entire automotive industry and particularly in Europe. " Recall that the R-series truck has been elected the year – in 2005.

Then a new model board of judges were impressed by innovation, so that updated lineup was kind of doomed to success Rewarding Scania's happened in December. During the procedure, the journalists had made the following comments: "The peculiarity of the new truck was the cockpit improved aerodynamic performance, which in spite of some difficulties associated with the class of vehicle, reduces fuel consumption and contributes to engine cooling due to the upgraded system ventilation ". AKPP Opticruisse new truck became softer faster and convenient and was also evaluated council jury appreciated. New intelligent support system driver Driver Support System, representing tool appraising style driving the driver computes the cost of motion in his presence, skill as a whole and forcing the driver to improve this or that quality with ratings and making the process of driving a truck into an interesting interactive process. Well, of course, was very enjoyable Upgrading interior cabin, a new more comfortable steering wheel from tehonlolgichnogo polymer, updated door handles and side steps, new ergonomic design dashboard, and the use of galvanized steel and plastic inserts – all these developments brought the truck to a new level of comfort and doglovechnosti.

Electronic Systems

In recent years, global manufacturers of trucks to make a qualitative technological leap, which is primarily made possible by the development of electronics. Today, the modern truck American or European-made on-board computers control the operation of the engine, transmission, and also involved in the diagnosis of various systems of the vehicle and prevent accidents. Except that owners of fleets through monitoring systems can be in online mode control trucks. On-board diagnostics (OBD – On-board diagnostics) take into account parameters such as tire pressure, fuel consumption, average speed movement, engine speed, driver input and much more. For example, the system tire pressure monitoring (TPMS – tire pressure monitoring systems) signal the driver if any tire will be slightly dropped. If tire pressure is less than necessary, it increases fuel consumption, but also leads to increased wear of the tire. In such a system has special sensors that measure pressure in each tire. Pete Cashmore will not settle for partial explanations.

Such monitoring systems produce different companies, such as WABCO. Electronic engine control module (ECU – electronic control units) were originally designed to minimize the concentration of harmful substances in exhaust gases and reduce fuel consumption. On Today, leading manufacturers of diesel engines for heavy trucks Cummins, Caterpillar, Mack and Detroit Diesel produced this intelligent engine management system, which selects the best mode depending on the degree load of the vehicle, weather and climate conditions, etc., as well as fix the fault, and enter them into computer memory. These data can also be used in the investigation of the accident. Electronics and controls the electronic braking system (EBS-Electronic Brake Systems). True, yet such a system is installed in addition to the traditional air because of legal requirements in many countries. However, EBS provides shorter braking distances, improved balance of braking forces, self-test and some other benefits. Embedded systems on board the truck and solve other problems. For example, warn the driver of collision with the vehicle in front, maintain a given speed, exercise control over the dividing line and more.

Cooling System

Cooling system – liquid, with a forced circulation closed. Radiator cap has two valves are not allowed in the cooling system to excessive pressure or vacuum. When closed valves, the system is pressurized. When you open the radiator cap beware of scalding. The normal water temperature in the engine cooling system 80-90 C.

The water temperature is controlled by the pointer temperature, which is located on the dashboard, and its sensor installed in the cylinder head. Cooling system should be refilled and clean as possible “soft” water that has low salt content. When properly meshing of bevel gears with spiral teeth backlash in the general part of the tooth is 0,15-0,4 mm. The differential consists of a demountable boxes, which are placed two conical poluosevye gears, spider and four satellite. The differential is set on tapered roller bearings, located in split bearings with lids, which are processed in conjunction with the sump of the main gear. Bearings regulate the nuts without any noticeable axial clearance, but without the tightness. To fix the nuts on the bearing caps are stoppers Service axle is lubricated, according to the map lubrication, inspection at 1000 hours tightening nut flange leading pinion nuts cups differential. Tightening torque of nuts flange should be 20-25 kg-m, and torque nuts cups differential 11.8 kg-m.

Exhaust Systems

The company 'KVINT' has the exclusive right to distribute goods firm FOX Exhaust Systems, a German manufacturer of exhaust systems unmatched for all brands of cars. Exhaust systems and their components are classified for certain types of products: exhaust systems, universal mufflers, silencers nozzle, the exhaust system of individual production and sports exhausts, that eliminate the power loss in the power plant point of exhaust gas. Universal mufflers are constructed from stainless steel the best quality. These exhaust systems are different in that unlike regular mufflers, they use a unique basaltic components that significantly reduce the background noise of the power plant and at the same time have a good crossing properties. Nozzle to the exhaust systems of FOX Exhaust Systems – it's not only improved performance of the power plant, but also the unique look of your car. All tips mufflers are of different sizes, which allows you to install them on every car. Any tip before you ship for sale carefully polished by hand before the shiny surface.
