The main purpose of the air suspension is to regulate ground clearance (the height between the road and the body of the car). As a rule, a similar system is used on premium-class vehicles. Note that the air suspension is not an independent auto-part. It’s usually based on existing structures and struts.
Air suspension of Mercedes GL Class X164: specifics
For each individual brand of car, a separate platform is selected. Therefore, if you need to replace any of its elements, you should buy a certain item for a particular vehicle. The simplest design consists of components such as:
- elastic elements that are installed on the wheels;
- compressors — compressed air is supplied with their help;
- air receivers;
- block and control sensors;
- pneumatic bellows or air bag.
Thanks to the elastic elements, the clearance is adjusted and maintained. They are the main actuators. The clearance can be adjusted automatically or manually. The lifting or lowering of the body relative to the roadway is carried out as a result of the change in air pressure inside the parts.
Pneumatic elements are available in different versions:
- they can be combined with amoktron sensors designed to monitor different parameters:
- The position of the car relative to the road, the acceleration of the car, the tilt, etc.
