Mercedes-Benz Actros


[ edit ]

The Mercedes Benz is basically equipped with two of engines. The OM 501 LA-541 and the OM 502 LA-542. The OM 501 is a V6, and has outputs ranging from 310 HP to 460 HP. The management system employed by engine is the PLD (Pumpe Leitung abbr) which incorporates plug-in pumps for each supplying fuel under (up to 1,600 bar) to the injection A control unit MR monitors all operating conditions via several and varies the injection pressure to each operating condition.

The version offers several options in either Euro-5 or compliant models, with power output.

Gearbox [ ]

The second Actros generation with an electronic sequential that Mercedes-Benz has dubbed the Gearbox. It pushes forward the used in some earlier tractors; using the gearshift to command a pneumatically actuated that changes the gears. The gearbox utilizes a computer, with a load-sensing system on the coupling, to estimate the proper that the truck must be in. For if you want to upshift, the computer the load on the tractor and the current mode, and gives you the proper for decreasing engine RPM. On the hand, if you want to downshift, the assumes you wish to overtake, and you a proper gear for acceleration.

There’s an automatic version works like the Tiptronic found in Mercedes-Benz cars.

The launched in 2011 offers the 12-speed powershift transmission.

The system consists of a lever mounted under the armrest and a flat switch The lever is slightly tilted, so it matches the natural curve of the hand when it’s on the The lever has two buttons on either When at a standstill, the driver push the left button, (while holding it), the lever forward and release it fourth fast. The current is shown as a large number on the display. After doing the driver steps on the clutch and waits for approximately two seconds. the gearshift has completed, a double is sounded through the speakers, and the proceeds with pulling off as

Once moving, the driver has two He or she may push or pull the lever to let the choose the gear for them, or can use the splitter switch (the switch under the lever) to gears. Either way, the is selected first, then the is depressed. For example, if you’re in fast, pulling the splitter up once pre-selects fifth

The right button (known as the button’, as it is flush with the is used to switch to neutral.

Advantages [ edit ]

Since the does not directly operate on the it significantly reduces the wear and on the gearbox itself. The gearbox is synchronized, and in some models the would even blip the for you for a smoother downshift. Also, great for novice drivers, who are not of the proper gear. The Actros is described as a no-nonsense machine can work extremely well in road transport variations if properly and operated with an of the vehicle’s core design.

The Actros is one of the most desired on the export market, as they very well in high and humid conditions.

Cabin [ ]

The cabin of the Actros is built consideration for the driver. It provides a smooth and pleasant ride. suspension of both the cab and the tractor makes for a really smooth even on the roughest road. The sleeper version provides two (the upper one not usable driving, as the seats must be The upper bunk is somewhat but all the controls (radio, windows, heater, etc.) are available the lower bunk. However, of the controls one would need heater, sunroof, etc.) resting doubled overhead of the and the width of the upper bunk for a person to use them by merely their hand.

The auxiliary heater can be programmed to on, for example, 30 minutes before the enters the truck, so in the colder a driver would be able to a warm cab instead of waiting for it to up.

There are large storage especially in the MegaSpace cab. storage spaces are available the lower bunk. In some cab there are boxes behind the that open from the but are accessible on the outside — for tools, lashing belts, etc.

The driver seat is a adjustable Grammer pneumatically seat, and the passenger seat allows for backrest adjustment. The wheel is fully adjustable as and allows the driver to control of the on-board computer as well as the radio/CD player and the bluetooth control.

The cab has excellent sound and provides almost car-like

The Actros cabs come in types:

S — designed for operation and construction vehicles as cement trucks. The daily cab has its bumper lower to the ground to under-run, whereas the construction of the S cab has its front bumper higher to hitting an obstacle when off-road on the site.

M — for distribution vehicles. It offers a though comfort has not been on as in the L cab. It comes in short and sleeper versions.

L — Low-roof long-haul providing comfortable driving and for the driver.

Version 4 Actros are offered in either 2300 mm or 2500 mm and varied heights. A new solostar is available as an option for more when used in a single-driver

Electronics [ edit ]

Depending on either Actros 1,2 or 3 the electronics may For example, the braking system as EPB or BS from Wabco incorporates ABS and ASR This system is very and efficient. The stopping distance in the was drastically reduced as compared to its the SK. In later models of Actros 2 and all 3 models the braking System was to EPB 2.

The Electronics in the Actros 1 are networked via Area Network (CAN) in a known as IES (Integrated Electronics with the instrument cluster as the Gateway (CGW) or the interphase. In the 2 and 3 the electronics are networked also by CAN in a known as KontAct (Concept of the systems in the Actros).

There is a range of other electronic offered as extras. These lane assist (warns the if they inadvertently leave lane), Autonomous Intelligent Control ART (which engages the if the vehicle in front suddenly side looking radar for the driver about a vehicle in blind spot, and many mostly oriented towards All of them are marketed as Telligent.

Problems with electronics [ ]

In some cases, when the of the trailer (especially the ABS sensors in the get wet, the brake pedal not operate as normal, and even the touch would result in a There are problems with the of the mileage available for the remaining Cases have been when the fuel has run out with the showing 25 more miles to go. the statistics of average speed and consumption are prone to failure driving a digital tachograph without a driver card. problem has now been solved by a update from Mercedes. The transmission has also had a clutch plate failure issue a recall in late 2009 trucks have had further cylinder failures with no from the manufacturer.
