Key Benefits

The advantages of ABS brakes (anti-lock braking system) on NACPC chassis are just as the meaning of their acronym implies, they eliminate or greatly reduce the possibility of brake lock up and therefore provide a better chance of steering out of trouble. Anti-lock brakes do just this by using a computer processor to monitor and control the application of the brakes. At braking, the processor monitors rpm and braking pressure on each of the vehicle’s wheels. With this information, measured amounts of pressure are sent to each wheel in the form of hydraulic pulses of pressure to the calipers. These pulses achieve the desired braking pressure without allowing the wheels to lock up.



Conventional hydraulic brakes work by using a cylinder (actuator), which squeezes brake calipers together around the wheel’s rotor when the brake petal is depressed. Under these conditions the wheels may lock up and the tires run the risk of losing their grip.
