What can Nivomat provide?

The Nivomat is installed on the rear axle in place of a conventional damper. Fully automatically and without additional electronic systems, this compact device pumps the vehicle up to its optimum ride height after only a few meters. The Nivomat takes the energy needed to do so from the relative movements of the wheel and the vehicle body. For every load condition, this maintenance-free system sets the ideal vehicle height, thus ensuring a safe and comfortable drive.

The Task

Constant heavy or changing loads, as well as trailer dynamics, place high demands on both vehicle and driver. Extra weight on the rear axle shifts the center of gravity, and exerts a major impact on driving performance in the process. In critical situations, the vehicle can be very difficult to control, while inconsistent responsiveness makes driving comfort nearly impossible. Other consequences can be expensive. Fuel consumption rises, and tire wear increases due to uneven power transmission. Greater strain is also placed on the axle as a whole. The Nivomat, the leveling system from ZF, counters the negative effects of loads. There are many vehicle applications, especially in mid-sized classes, such as station wagons, vans, SUVs and sedans that offer the Nivomat as an option. The Nivomat is available as a damper, spring damper, suspension strut, or suspension strut module.
