Electronic Steering System

The latest innovation from TRT uses state of the art software to provide the most effective solution to get your payload from A to B!

 

TRT’s electronic steering system package provides the optimum steering geometry no matter what the length, empty or loaded.

Maximise your investment for manoeuvrability and reduce whole of life costs. Get every km available from your tyres the electronic steering system is available on:

  • House Trailers
  • Low Loaders
  • Platform Trailers - modular and multi-line

The system can be programmed for additional Clip-on modules that may be added to the trailer.


 

House Trailers

 

TRT have developed an Electronic Steering System (ESS) that is now available with their Hydraulic House trailer design.

This new system will allow for all axles to steer in conjunction with the truck steering and by remote control for operator assist and crab steering. The steer axle is able to be steered to 35° either side of centre.

All axles will be controlled through an electronic sensed steering system. Each axle will be controlled individually by a hydraulic ram that will ratio the correct steering angle in unison with all the trailers axles. The various house trailer lengths (which can change by every pocket opening) will be programmed into the system to optimize steering angles.

In the electronic steering mode, the steering is controlled via the Prime Mover's 5th wheel with special wedge lock fitted. This auto-steering mode can also be manually overridden to allow the operator to power steer the trailer without using the signal. 

The required configuration can be set up by the operator from the controller in the truck’s cab with the selection of a single button, simple! Once selected the steering angle of all wheels will automatically change to the pre-programmed angles for that configuration no matter what the length the trailer is open or closed the trailer to.

Platform Trailers and Low Loaders

 

For the ultimate manoeuvrability and control, when moving the most difficult loads!

TRT have developed an Electronic Steering System that is now available in our Multi-line and Modular Platform trailers.

All axles are controlled through an electronic sensed steering system. Each axle will be controlled individually by a hydraulic ram that will ratio the correct steering angle in unison with all the trailers axles. 

The various trailer widths and lengths are programmed into the system to optimise steering angles. In this mode, steering is controlled via the prime mover's 5th wheel with special wedge lock fitted. This electronic steering mode can also be manually overridden to allow the operator to power steer the trailer without using the signal from the prime mover's 5th wheel.

This new system will allow for all axles to steer in conjunction with the truck steering and by remote control for operator assist and crab steering.

As with TRT's house trailer's the electronic steering system provides the optimum steering geometry no matter what the length or width, empty or loaded.  Get every kilometre available from your tyres. You will maximise your investment and reduce whole of life costs.
