Progress of the WABCO ABS for Commercial Vehicles in the North American Market 861978

The heavy duty truck industry is looking for answers to make the brake system safer. One will be the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). ABS is made for users. The flexible modular system allows for the application of main components to various vehicle configurations. Today's ABS does not only prevent locked wheels, it provides additional features such as a diagonal safety system and drive slip control (DSC).
This paper addresses the unique features of the WABCO ABS with relation to its performance and the easy method of trouble shooting.
