Volvo Banks On EBS For Increased Braking Functions

To increase road safety, Volvo is including extra auto functions in its base range for its trucks. These functions will be delivered by EBS (Electronically controlled Brake System) to the European Volvo market.

If a customer selects a truck with EBS in base form, increased braking functions are included without extra cost. Additional functions include the Hill Start Aid, which prevents the truck from rolling backward when starting on an uphill gradient. Another valuable function is the Wheel Brake Monitoring, which alerts the driver if the brake force on any wheel unexpectedly falls.

Volvo trucks and selected cars are now equipped with the latest generation EBS and ventilated disc brakes. These vehicles offer significant number of safety and comfort enhancing functions for one-of-a-kind drive feel. Sophisticated disc brakes mated to standard EBS system ensures rapid response and the shortest possible braking distance.

Lars-Göran Löwenadler, safety director at Volvo Trucks said, “We are now providing our customers with an extremely high safety level as standard, no matter the type of truck they order. This is entirely in line with our constant determination to increase safety for drivers and other road-users alike.”

EBS system comes in three levels: standard EBS, EBS+ (Medium), and EBS High. The Standard package is included as before in the base version. In the medium level, all the functions are now enhanced with increased functions at no extra cost. This means that the base version has been upgraded with 6 additional functions for both rigids and semi-trailers.

The EBS+ system includes the Hill Hold additional safety function. It prevents the vehicle from rolling backward when starting on an incline. This is done by holding the vehicle on the service brakes until enough torque is distributed. The system includes traction control, incessant monitoring of brake pad conditions and temperature.

EBS High is given all the features of EBS+ and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP). The system is easily activated when the vehicle shows any tendency to lose contact with the road surface. ESP is available for Volvo FE as solo rigid.

EBS adjusts with the driving situation. It is equipped with a number of valves and sensors to regulate and monitor the braking system. The base range additional functions include the Hill Start Aid, Panic Brake Assistance, Wheel Brake Monitoring, Lining Wear Analysis, Drag Torque Control, and Differential Lock Control.

The additional braking functions from the automaker can also be expected in Volvo XC90 vintage car truck parts and other Volvo vehicles.
