Brembo has combined its traditional mechanical know-how with latest electronic feataures to develop a new range of electric combined sliding (ECS) calipers that simultaneously carries out the function of the service brake and integrated electromechanical parking brake.
Built to withstand the stresses and loads typical of light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, the ECS calipers are integrated into the vehicle’s electronic stability control (ESC) system. The integration provides numerous additional features compared to a traditional hand brake, such as assistance for uphill starts, vehicle slip prevention, manual/automatic parking brake release, parking safety with hot brake discs and emergency braking.
Brembo customises service brakes according to customer needs. Commercial vehicle manufacturers can opt for different
combinations of piston diameter, surface and pad volume. For the parking function, a specific electromechanical actuator is used and it meets the requirements of ECE-R13 H and ISO 26262 for functional safety.
