Knorr-Bremse is the world’s leading manufacturer of braking and control systems for commercial vehicles and supplies all the world’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers. Apart from complete braking systems, its product range includes Driver Assistance System solutions all around the power train as well as associated aftermarket services.
It is estimated that, in the European Community, the equipping of all trucks and buses/coaches with electronic systems would result in 500 fewer deaths and 2 500 fewer injuries due to road accidents per year. Knorr-Bremse is pressing ahead with the development of active and passive driver assistance systems and is thereby making a significant contribution to increasing safety on the roads.
The Knorr-Bremse electronic braking systems for trailers (TEBS) combine, in one compact assembly, the electronic control unit, the sensor technology and the pneumatic control.
The braking functions of anti-lock and load sensing control are both electronically managed within the module as integrated features. This provides more accurate and consistent control of the generated braking, thereby improving tractor-trailer compatibility, optimising the brake wear and helping to reduce the overall operating costs of the trailer.
The service-proven anti-roll system, RSP (Roll Stability Program), is included as standard in all TEBS G2 Brake Modules.
