The ModulMax range is now available with electonic steering

Luxembourg-headquartered special vehicle manufacturer Faymonville has added electronic steering to its ModulMax twin-tyre self-propelled trailer range. ModulMax comprises a series of combinable transport modules with 2 to 6 axle lines for off-road and on-road operations. The vehicles are equipped with 215/75 R17.5-inch twin tyres and come in a basic width of 3,000 mm.

The electronically-controlled steering system allows a steering angle up to +/- 140°. The steering motors are operated by proportional solenoid valves and directly managed from the central system, explains Faymonville. The corresponding position of the suspension units is continuously verified by an encoder with respect to the steering joystick position. It is possible to select several steering modes, the company says, making it possible to work in tight areas.

The electronic steering function is available for the G-Modul and S-Modul variants of the ModulMax when being used in self-propelled mode. The addition of electronic steering, which uses technology developed by sister company Cometto, completes the ModulMax range, said Faymonville.
