Antiblocking system of brakes

Presence on the car антиблокировоч ache systems (АБС) essentially raises degree of active safety of the car. The basic advantage of the working brakes equipped with this system, before usual working brake systems consists what even at intensive braking to a full stop on slippery road the best remains on a condition of a road covering controllability of the car as wheels are not blocked.

However it is not necessary to expect that thanking АБС under all road conditions a brake way it will be reduced. At movement on gravel or on the fresh snow lying on a slippery road covering when and without that it is necessary to move slowly and carefully, the brake way can even increase.

Action АБС

At achievement by the car of speed of movement of 6 km/h there is an automatic check работоспо собности АБС. Thus it is possible to hear a characteristic sound.

When district speed of any wheel becomes less speeds of the car and the wheel is on the verge of blocking, pressure in a drive of the brake mechanism of this wheel decreases. Pressure regulation in a drive is carried out separately on forward wheels, pressure in a drive on both wheels is behind regulated. Thanks to it braking of both back wheels equally, and stability of the car remains so good, how much it in general is possible under the given road conditions. This process of regulation can be noticed on pulsing movements of a pedal of a brake and on a specific sound. It should be some kind of the prevention for the driver that one or several wheels start to be blocked. That АБС operated optimum, it is necessary to hold at braking a pedal of a brake constantly pressed and not to do at all pumping up movements.

The prevention

Even АБС cannot overcome physics laws. It is necessary not to forget about it, especially at movement on slippery or wet road. As soon as АВС will start to function actively, it is necessary to bring immediately speed of movement into accord with a condition of a road covering and the general traffic conditions. The raised degree of safety of the car does not mean that it is possible to risk recklessly own safety and safety of other people.

If there is any malfunction in АБС, about it one or two control lamps signal.
