Jayco Australia adopts Sway Command technology by Lippert Components
Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces today that Jayco Australia has adopted Sway Command® Tow Control Technology across specific 2020 Jayco brand towables. Sway Command® Tow Control Technology electronically detects trailer sway and selectively applies the trailer brakes to suppress unwanted sway.
Ken Miller, Global Sourcing Component Innovation and Technologies Manager of Jayco Australia, says, “Innovation continues to be a key focus for Jayco in 2020, inclusive of its partnership with Lippert Components.”
“Jayco Australia is proud to have developed a strong relationship with Lippert Components, beginning with slide-out components many years ago,” continued Mr. Miller.
“Innovation in caravanning, especially when it comes to safety, continues to be a driving force for Jayco Australia, and we are excited to see new components, such as Sway Command, fitted to our world-leading RVs launching in February 2020,” said Mr. Miller.
“Our OEM partnerships are something we continually strive to enhance. Jayco’s adoption of Sway Command is a tribute to the long-standing relationships and product innovations that set us apart from competitors,” said Jason Lippert, LCI’s CEO.
Sway Command® features advanced patented microprocessor technology that electronically detects trailer sway and applies the trailer brakes to suppress unwanted sway. Utilizing both an accelerometer, which measures lateral force, and a gyroscope sensor, which measures angular velocity, Sway Command® quickly and accurately differentiates between side-to-side and up-and-down movement to prevent false activation and, therefore, does not need to be de-activated in off-road conditions. Most market competitors use only accelerometer technology. Currently, LCI produces over 1 million brakes per year for the global RV industry.
