Changed Security policy

Due to changed Security policy at Scania, Bodybuilder Instructions and Drawings and 3D will be put under log in.  

You must be logged in with Truck Bodybuilder portal role to see the Instrucktion and Drawings and 3D tab in the Body builder portal.

All Distributors need to make sure that Bodybuilders on your market have a correct account in IGA.

The Role that is needed in IGA is Truck Bodybuilder portal Independent role or Truck Bodybuilder portal Owned role.

Also important to add both Mobil number and email address when creating the XDS account if you shall order a 3D drawing and sign a Scania Digitally confidentiality agreement 3D

ELECTRIC PTO ON ELECTRICAL VEHICLES

When using the electric PTO (PTO EL) it is essential that the installation parameters are within the specified limit values before commissioning can be carried out. This is important to avoid damage to the vehicle's VCB system and to avoid impair the function of PTO EL.

We are introducing the document “Measurements on PTO EL when commissioning” as a help for bodybuilders that will install bodywork equipment to the PTO EL connections. 

https://til.scania.com/d/bwm/22:10-843?lang=en-GB

The value range for each measurement point are described in detail in “Work on electric power take-off (PTO EL)”.  https://til.scania.com/d/bwm/22:10-834?lang=en-GB

The measurements points aims just to the values that are affected by the operation of the bodywork system connected to the PTO EL. The bodywork equipment must comply with all other requirements stated in “Work on electric power take-off (PTO EL)”

This new document shall be taken as a routine guideline and can be incorporated in bodybuilder own commissioning routines for its bodywork equipment.

Scania might ask for the commissioning measurement values after the vehicle is taken in operation by the end customer, therefore it is important that bodybuilders are documenting this commissioning values in their own administrative routines for up to 8 years.

FUEL OPTIMISATION UNIT

If there is a need for more space in front of or rear of the fuel tank it is possible to move the fuel optimisation unit considered that the following requirements are fulfilled:​

  • The fuel optimisation unit and fuel tank shall be placed in the same vertical plane​

  • The fuel optimisation unit can only be rotated around a vertical axle and thereby only be moved with maintained angle compared to the ground​

  • The fuel optimisation unit and fuel pipes shall be protected from heat sources​

  • The fuel optimisation unit and fuel pipes shall be protected from gravel, snow etc from road​

  • Possibility for maintenance of the fuel optimisation unit shall be maintained e.g. the bottom plug and the filter cartridge shall be easily accessible.​

  • If longer pipes or cables are needed they shall be replaced by new full length pipes in necessary length.​

  • Maximum length for fuel pipe between fuel optimisation unit and engine is 12000 mm​

  • Maximum length for fuel pipe between fuel optimisation unit and fuel tank is 2000 mm​

  • Fuel pipes and electrical cables shall be long enough to facilitate the fuel optimisation unit to be disassembled and lowered without removing the fuel pipes

HYDRAULIC EQUIPMENT TO POWER BODYWORK​

All vehicles can be factory-fitted with various hydraulic components. ​

Available components are; control, hydraulic pump, hydraulic oil tank, hydraulic valve with pressure limiting valve, hydraulic hoses and couplings as well as hydraulic oil.​

More information about the different options can be found in the Hydraulic equipment document as we as well as part numbers for Hoses and couplings for retrofitting that can be ordered from Scania dealers.​

Documents are updated with information regarding the new fuel- and hydraulic tank program introduced in connection with Scania Super.

DOCUMENT FOR FRONT MOUNTED EQUIPMENT IS UPDATED

Requirements for installation of front mounted equipment for instance support legs and snow plough equipment as well as information regarding moving of the front radar is added.​

When using front supporting legs, snow plough equipment and other front mounted equipment the front section of the chassis is exposed to great forces. The guidelines must be followed to avoid any failures. For some cases, the installation must be approved by Scania before the solution can be used on a Scania vehicle.

SCANIA HAVE INTRODUCED A NEW POWERTRAIN CALLED SCANIA SUPER

The introduction includes a completely new engine, a new gearbox and rear axle as well as a completely new fuel tank and wet kit tank program and also a modular way of placing the chassis components. The objectives for Scania Super have been improving fuel economy and improving flexibility for chassis components. The new diesel engine is a new design from the ground up which has made it possible to optimize the engine layout and introduce a better design in full. This include a new power-take off in a more suitable position and with higher performance than before. The gearbox G25CM is added to the G33CM platform. New Scania flexible chassis introduces a much-improved chassis composition flexibility, based on a new modular program. It increases frame space, improves body adaptability and creates a more efficient load distribution. New fuel tank section profile and Fuel Optimization Unit is introduced for improved performance and better utilization of fuel in tanks.​

TUBES FOR EASY CABLE ROUTING INSIDE INSTRUMENT PANEL

All Scania vehicles are equipped with tubes meant for facilitating routing of bobybuilders cable harness inside the instrument panel. The protective tubes facilitate retrofitting of cable harnesses, which may be required for e.g. new switches. The protective tubes have an inner diameter of 16.6 mm. There is a slight difference between left-hand drive and right-hand drive vehicles in that the tube on righthand drive vehicles is split while it is one full length tube on left-hand drive.​
