SKS (Sensor coupling system)

Advantages at a glance

  • Sensors provide optimum safety when connecting
  • Increased safety even in poor visibility
  • The pneumatic mechanism of the lock enables the fifth wheel coupling to be opened effortlessly at all times, even when the tractor/trailer unit is under tension
  • Avoids unnecessary shunting and fiddling
  • The fifth wheel coupling can still be operated mechanically

Technical Features

  • The remote control in the cabin opens the fifth wheel coupling at the push of a button thanks to a pneumatic cylinder.
  • A sensor permanently monitors the locking position and displays it in the driver’s cabin
  • A second sensor controls the position of the king pin
  • A third sensor displays the correct coupling height in the driver’s cab
  • Sensors are located in protected zones on non-moving parts
  • Electromagnetical compatibility according to highest standards
