The ultimate coupling

VBG MFC - Trailer coupling

The VBG MFC (Multi Function Coupling) sets a new standard on the market. Fully automatic coupling and decoupling not only saves a great deal of time, but also offers maximum safety and convenience for the driver – who doesn’t even need to leave the cab.

A single press of a button activates coupling and decoupling of all functions – pneumatics, electrics and hydraulics. The unique comfort wedge provides stable, smooth and convenient coupling with unbeatable driving comfort. The entirely backlash-fee coupling also reduces total wear on the vehicle.

For coupling and decoupling carried out numerous times daily, the time saved with VBG MFC can be so significant that it will be the most economical of all coupling solutions. Less idling time also provides significant environmental benefits.

VBG MFC is approved for both trailers and dollies. Available with or without hydraulics.

How it works

The coupling and drawbar head have integrated connections for brake air, electrical systems, and hydraulics. Once the drawbar head is in position, it is secured by dual locking wedges that lock it in position, and then the brake air, electrics, and hydraulics are connected fully automatically.

How to couple

During coupling, ultrasonic sensors send signals to the control panel in the cab, which shows the position of the drawbar head in relation to the coupling. This makes it easy to guide in the drawbar head, without having to rely on a rear camera.

It couldn’t be simpler

Everything can be controlled simply and easily from the control panel in the cab. The display shows when the coupling process is starting, when you can start reversing, and when the coupling has been completed. When the green coupling symbol appears, the system is coupled and locked, and you can start driving.

Info from the CAN bus

In order for VBG MFC to function in your vehicle, the coupling must obtain the truck’s wheel-based speed via CAN. This information is retrieved from the truck’s CAN bus for bodybuilders (often called FMS CAN or SAE J1939).
If there is no existing CAN bus, please contact us.

Fleet manager

When coupling and decoupling numerous times daily, you can save plenty of time and money with VBG MFC. Since you are able to save several minutes during each coupling and decoupling, you save a significant amount of time, which can instead be used to keep your vehicle rolling. Fuel consumption when idling during coupling and decoupling can also add up substantially over time – fuel that could otherwise be used for driving. Viewed over the service life of the vehicle, fully automatic coupling may actually be the most economical solution.

VBG MFC provides maximum safety, ergonomics and comfort for the driver, and the driver does not even need to leave the cab in tight spaces or hazardous environments.
