What Is Anti Lock Brake System

We all know that cars are stopped by their brake pads. The working principle of the car's brake system is friction. The car's brake device uses the friction between the brake pads and the brake disc to convert the kinetic energy of the vehicle into frictional heat energy to stop the car. However, using the friction of the brake pads to brake may cause the wheels to lock up. The anti lock brake system, as the name suggests, is to prevent this from happening in cars. This article will introduce you to the anti lock brake system and brake pad in detail, and solve all your questions about them.

1. Why does the car's brakes lock up?

We already know that the working principle of automobile brakes is friction. If you depress the brake pedal forcefully while driving, the brake pads will always be in close contact with the brake disc, and the wheels will rub against the ground without rotating, and the car’s own gear will be lost. For objects with initial speed and obvious inertia, the car will stop by the friction of the brake pad. When the braking force exceeds the friction between the wheel and the ground, the wheel will be locked, and a completely locked wheel will reduce the friction between the tire and the ground. This may bring dangers such as car sideslip, tail-flicking and sharp turns. This is worthy of all drivers' attention. In order to protect the safety of you and others, please avoid your brake pad from locking up.

 

2. Composition and working principle of anti lock brake system

To put it simply, the anti lock brake system is a program that gives the brake a quick brake. The anti lock brake system is composed of ECU control unit, wheel speed sensor, brake pressure regulating device and brake control circuit. In the car braking process, the control unit of the anti lock brake system continuously obtains the wheel speed signals from the wheel speed sensors and processes them to determine whether the wheels are about to be locked. If the anti lock brake system determines that a certain wheel has a tendency to lock, the ECU will issue a command to the brake pressure regulator to close the passage between the brake cylinder and the wheel brake cylinder so that the pressure of the brake wheel will no longer increase.

 

3. In addition to installing anti lock brake system, other methods to deal with brake pad

If your car’s brake pads lock up, please don’t panic. Here will teach you some methods. Many people find that after a car is left to stand for a long time, especially a wet car, it will lock up. Because when the brake pads and drum brakes are stuck together, a chemical reaction will occur, which is prone to rust and cause the tire to lock up. If this is the case with your car, you can sand the brake pads with sandpaper. If your brake pads are abnormally worn, or the brake discs are damaged too much, the brakes may lock up. We recommend that you check the brake pads and brake discs in time. If the brake pads are worn out, you need to replace the brake pads in time.

 

The above is all the content of this article. I hope this article can help you choose the most suitable brake pad. We are a professional manufacturer that can provide you with brake pads, such as low noise brake pad,non abestos brake pad,non squealing brake pad. If you need brake pads, welcome to contact us.
