DRiV™'s National® Brand Introduces Dual Encoder Bearings - with New SureSignal™ Technology - That Eliminates Improper Installation

Encoder Appears on Both Sides of Bearing, Allowing for Easier Installation and Less Installer Error, Saving Technicians Time

Southfield, Mich., Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DRiV™'s National® brand, offering premium wheel-end solutions for over 75 years, has introduced a new dual encoder bearing for automotive applications. Currently, National's dual encoder bearings are available for over 38 million vehicles in operation.

Typical installation of a single encoder bearing requires the face of the magnetic encoder be fitted inwardly on the vehicle, facing away from the tire. There are no markings indicating where the encoder is, making it difficult for a technician to install these bearings correctly the first time. National's new dual encoder bearings, with SureSignal™ Technology, contains magnetic encoders on both sides of the bearing, eliminating installation error and potentially saving technicians time and money, allowing them to work on other jobs. Each dual encoder bearing brings National's commitment to providing the most advanced technologies and solutions for modern vehicles.

"Continuing with DRiV's innovative solutions philosophy, we are excited to introduce a new technology to our product line that will aid technicians in their daily installations, and help them get the job done quickly," said Alexandra Howe, Wheel-End Product Line manager. "We plan to continue to expand the number of applications available to techs so that they can provide the latest innovations to their end customers."
