Presentation Description

Mercedes is one of the most sought after European luxury car due to its various advanced features. One of the most advanced features in Mercedes is its ABS system. The ABS system is critical not only because it helps in the proper stopping of the car but also assist in the handling of the Mercedes. Moreover, it also prevents the wheels from locking up and helps in maintaining steering control. Go through the slide to know about the ABS system in your Mercedes Benz.

Know the ABS System in Your Mercedes-Benz

Slide2:

Anti-lock braking or ABS technology is common on all new cars and is one of the most essential things your Mercedes-Benz offers to keep you safe.

Slide3:

The anti-lock braking system aka ABS is a safety feature in Mercedes-Benz that prevents their wheels from locking up and helps to maintain the steering control.

Slide4:

ABS enables the wheels of a car to maintain retroactive contact with the ground to avoid an uncontrolled skid on sudden braking.

Slide5:

So, let us learn about the ABS system, its major components and how to keep them in proper working order.

Slide6:

Speed sensor

Slide7:

These sensors are attached to each wheel and determines whether to accelerate and decelerate, the speed of the wheels.

Slide8:

It consists of an exciter and a wire coil or magnet assembly, which generates the pulses of electricity as the teeth of the exciter pass in front of it.

Slide9:

Valves

Slide10:

There is a valve in the brake line of each wheel that regulates the air pressure to the brakes during the ABS action.

Slide11:

The resistance that you feel, while braking suddenly at high speeds is actually the brake valves controlling the pressure that is being transferred to the brakes.

Slide12:

Electronic control unit

Slide13:

The ECU is an electronic unit that receives, amplifies and filters the sensor signals for calculating the wheel rotation speed and acceleration.

Slide14:

It collects the signal from the sensors in the circuit, analyzes them and controls the brake pressure.

Slide15:

Hydraulic control unit

Slide16:

The hydraulic control unit receives a signal from the ECU to apply or release the brakes under the anti-lock conditions.

Slide17:

It controls the brakes by increasing the hydraulic pressure or bypassing the pedal force to reduce the braking power.

Slide18:

What are the advantages?

Slide19:

The ABS brakes are designed to combat the problem of tire lock up and uncontrolled spins and it provides stable braking characteristics on all road surfaces.

Slide20:

ABS reduces friction between the tires and road, thus increases the efficiency of the tires and with the application of ABS, your Mercedes-Benz stops at a shorter distance than the conventional brakes.
