With their special design and equipment, commercial vehicles are made for a specific use. This is both for the transportation of passengers and freight, as well as for pulling heavy loads such as trailers. They are used in a variety of sectors, however they are primarily used by the authorities and in the commercial sector, as well as in agriculture.
The conveyance of passengers and freight are included in the two larger main categories into which commercial vehicles are divided. Further categories include vehicles with add-ons and special vehicles.
There is a large range of add-ons and extras available for commercial vehicles. These include, for example, trailers, roll-off dumpers and car transporters. The Micro SPS CAN is already being successfully used to control lighting on trailers, among other things. Our CAN 4 I/O, CAN I/O Waterproof and other CAN control systems can also be used for communication with the basic vehicle for various add-ons.
All commercial vehicles that focus on conveying people fall into the passenger transport category. This includes all types of buses, such as omnibuses, minibuses and articulated buses. The safety of the passengers is of most importance in these vehicles. Our Micro SPS CAN contributes to the control of door locking. Different gateways and CAN controls are also suitable for use in vehicles for passenger transport.
Unlike cars for passenger transport, with vehicles for logistics, the focus is on the transport of goods. With trucks, there is differentiation between light (<3.5 tons), medium (3.5-12 tons) and heavy (>12 tons) goods vehicles. Compact vans and panel vans are in the light truck category. Our touch panel enables quick control of different components and is particularly suitable for use in trucks and semi-trailers.
Refuse trucks refers to a truck specially designed to collect waste and haul the collected waste to a waste treatment facility such as a landfill. There are all variants of refuse trucks: Front loaders, rear loaders, automated side loaders, satellite side loaders and recycling bodies. Combine economy, safety, performance and durability at the refuse truck with our MRS products. Incorporate additional features to existing chassis by interfacing with CAN networks.
Road sweepers are special vehicles that are used to keep roads, pavements and other hard surfaces clean and free from debris. They either clean with brushes or with air. Road sweepers have several properties for example to spray water to minimise surface dust, gully cleaners fitted to clear roadside drains and ditches. There are also regenerative road sweepers which use a hydraulic system. The MRS products make the road sweeper more intelligent and effective.
Military vehicles are types of vehicle including all land combat and transportation vehicles, which are designed for or are significantly used by military forces. Under the most extreme conditions, they have to deliver consistently high performance. This is also supported by our MRS products such as controllers or gateways, which are used in military vehicles.
