Mico’s full-power brake system with ABS and traction control improves vehicle stability while decreasing stopping distances and enhancing acceleration under low-traction conditions for on- and off-highway multi-wheeled vehicles. As many as eight wheels can be controlled independently, and an electronic control unit (ECU) monitors wheel speed and brake line pressures with sensors. During wheel lock-up or wheel slip, the ECU’s embedded software algorithms determine the current needed at the electrohydraulic control valves to improve the operator’s control. Features include system status outputs to light ABS and low-traction lamps, as well as communication via CAN. The system can be customized to meet specific needs.
