DAF Trucks has been making strides forward in achieving the lower emission levels proscribed through new legislation to produce their cleanest truck models ever.
In order to maintain effective compliance of the highly prescribed and stringent emission parameters, it is important that any maintenance or intervention of these systems is treated with a level of utmost professionalism. Failure to ensure the correct level of repair, with guaranteed components can have a detrimental effect on the safe operation and compliance of the vehicle and leave the operator vulnerable to further unscheduled repairs and diagnostic sessions.
Any subsequent repair or maintenance that occurs where the introduction of non-compliant parts are used, risks consequential down time and compromises the operators transport efficiency.
Consequently, it is important to understand that the integrated nature of modern vehicles requires all electronic systems to work as designed. The fitment of the correct parts is essential to guarantee operational compliance, otherwise it could have the potential to negatively impact the operation and function of other after treatment and power train assemblies, such as the Diesel Particulate Filter and the Ad blue dosing circuit.
It is the operator’s responsibility to ensure the repair and maintenance of the vehicle or fleet and failing to adhere to correct maintenance and repair standards risks unnecessary attention from the authorities’.
In short, the potential for increased cost, not to mention the possibility of affecting the vehicle emissions to the point where they fall outside of current legislation or cause further MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) light issues, simply isn’t worth the risk, which is why fitting DAF Genuine NOx sensors is essential to ensure that vehicles continue to operate within legal emission levels at all modes of operation.
All DAF Genuine NOx Sensors are covered by a full DAF warranty.
Trevor Mitchell, Parts Sales & Marketing Director for DAF Trucks UK commented: “Our DAF Calibrated NOx sensors include DAF specific software which is tuned to the complete after treatment system ensuring that all DAF Trucks meet emission regulations as well as delivering optimal fuel economy, AdBlue usage and ensuring maximum vehicle uptime. Therefore, in order for that system on the truck to work effectively, we recommend that DAF Genuine NOx sensors are fitted every time.”
