ArvinMeritor Launches New Electronic Door Control Module

SULLY-SUR-LOIRE, France, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ArvinMeritor, Inc. (NYSE: ARM) announced today that its Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) business group will begin production of the company's first Electronic Door Control Module (EDCM) for a popular European passenger car that will launch in May 2006. The company plans to produce approximately 650,000 units per year.

"The launch of the Electronic Door Control Module into the market will send a significant message to our customers that ArvinMeritor is aggressively combining electronics technology with the company's leading door system product lines for added functionality," said Charles Hopson, vice president of Engineering for Door Systems. "Developed completely in-house, the EDCM is the only control module produced by a single company that designs and manufactures many of the components it controls."

The EDCM integrates electronic control functions previously found in two separate products into a single module. It assumes control of the window operation, including express up and down function, anti-squeeze sensing and prevention, and comfort closing capabilities. It also controls functionality for the electric, moveable, memory, heated and fold-away rearview mirror, as well as the indicator and courtesy lights. Additionally, the EDCM has been designed to allow future integration of latch electronics including lock, unlock, child locking, and hands-free or electric-release operation.
