EBS integrates the basic functions of braking control, ABS and ASR, into one electronic system. The advantages of electronic control over conventional pneumatic control are shorter response time and braking distance – resulting in increased road safety. The electronic braking system (EBS) has additional functions such as control of wear, downhill cruise control and Coupling Force Control (CFC), a system that distributes optimal braking power between a tractor vehicle and semi trailer. Knorr-Bremse offers EBS and CFC for all vehicle types, including trailers.
ECUtalk is a PC based diagnosis program for Knorr-Bremse electronic braking systems in trailers. Apart from diagnosis of the braking system, the program allows the configuring of various additional functions of the trailer control system and thereby the broadening of the systems range of functions. With the help of this diagnosis program, the user can read and delete the fault recorder, and also carry out a comprehensive System Test. An automatically running End-of-Line Test generating a closing report confirms correct installation and connection of the brake module.
