ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System)

Anti-Lock Brake SystemSudden braking can make wheels lock, causing the vehicle to lose stability and reduce the ability to avert danger.

The ABS stabilizes braking in such situations by monitoring wheels with wheel sensors, analyzing them with an electronic control unit (ECU) and automatically controlling braking strength with a modulator.

Brakes that previously relied on friction alone underwent an electronic brain transplant to radically increase braking performance as an ABS. As more vehicle models make use of this high-tech system, Nissin has developed a new ABS. Wholly developed by Nissin from modulator development to ECU computer software and hardware settings to test vehicles, Nissin's new ABS has functional enhancements and is lighter, smaller, and lower in cost. With capabilities for further advances, it is drawing attention as a brake system that is moving a step closer to an ideal system.
