How the 3500PLUS system solves the problem
The 3500PLUS system solves the problem of limited payload capacity for light commercial vehicles by increasing it to 2,500-3,000 kg, up to five times more than usual. The system also offers flexibility due to its compact dimensions and drives like a standard light commercial vehicle. It is easy to rebuild on identical vehicle brands and is suitable for the BE driving license, making it the answer to the driver shortage. The system accommodates a wide variety of different bodies, offering versatility in its applications.
Intelligent Braking System (IBS)
BE-Combi Systems has developed a new Intelligent Braking System (IBS) for the 3500PLUS system, which increases braking power, shortens stopping distance and prevents slippage in the event of an acute stop. IBS automatically converts all signals from safety systems on the vehicle into a corresponding air-brake pressure for the trailer. The system responds in a fraction of a second and is equipped with a backup system in case of malfunction so that you can be sure about the vehicle's safety.
