A New Generation: ABS Capable Wheel Bearings 910699
The integration of the speed sensors for ABS into the wheel bearings meet with increasing interest. These sophisticated systems are available for driven and non-driven wheels.
The paper describes developments leading to ABS capable wheel bearings. The influence of the surrounding parts and the operating conditions on the design of the wheel bearings is presented. The different wheel speed sensor systems and the electronic components to utilize these ABS capable wheel bearings are also described.
