Electronic Brake Force Distribution Control - A Sophisticated Addition to ABS 920646

The job of the EBD as a sub-system of the ABS system is to control the effective adhesion utilization by the rear wheels. The pressure of the rear wheels is approximated to the ideal brake force distribution in a partial braking operation. To do so, the conventional brake design is modified in the direction of rear axle overbraking, and the components of the ABS are used.
  • EBD reduces the strain on the hydraulic brake force proportioning valve in the vehicle
  • EBD optimizes the brake design with regard to:
    • adhesion utilization
    • driving stability
    • wear
    • temperature stress
    • pedal force
