SORL says its new foot brake valve is a technology breakthrough

  • 17-Nov-2011 01:09 EST

SORL Auto Parts Inc. is claiming a technology breakthrough with a new electronic foot brake valve for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. Compared with conventional foot brake valves, the company's new product uses both traditional air pressure and electronic brake signals. It features both dual-circuit air and dual-circuit electronic control systems to provide greater braking reliability. The electronic signal enhances energy use by controlling the brake's energy recovery systems to realize higher energy savings. In addition, the electronic braking signal transmitter uses noncontact electromagnetic sensors to provide wear-free operations, extending the products' life expectancy and delivers enhanced accuracy and consistency. The product is being shipped to China Youngman Automobile Group Co., Ltd. for its "new-energy" (electrified) luxury coaches and to the New Energy Bus Division of Beiqi Foton for its new Euro V-compliant buses. SORL's current primary targets for this technology are new-energy buses in the many growing urban centers in China.
