Peterbilt Announces Electrical Updates 

Sep 28th, 2018 | By | Category: New Products

Peterbilt Motors Company has announced the Vehicle Electrical Control Unit (VECU) to increase customer functionality and simplify body upfitting.

Peterbilt worked with customers and truck equipment manufacturers to improve the electrical integration process of a Peterbilt chassis with a vocational body. Peterbilt offers a variety of convenient body connectors to make the integration process simple. This includes customized settings for PTO operations, multiplex switches to improve diagnostic capabilities and additional safety interlocks. Customers will also be able to utilize a standard RP1226 connector, located inside the cab, to easily connect aftermarket electronic devices like telematics systems, ELDs and electronic body controls.

VECU will be implemented on Models 567 and 579 trucks produced in early October 2018.
