WABCO launches Intelligent Break Interlock for tank trailers


WABCO, global supplier of technologies and services that improve the safety, efficiency, and connectivity of commercial vehicles, has introduced Intelligent Brake Interlock, an advanced electronic break interlock system that improves the safety of tank trailers that haul hazardous materials or are equipped with cryogenic equipment.

WABCO’s Intelligent Brake Interlock uses proprietary technologies to improve the safe operation of tank trailers by ensuring that the vehicle does not move during loading and unloading.
