ABS increasingly used in today’s cars denotes Anti-Lock Blokier System and its function is to avoid wheel locking when a vehicle is stopped due to sudden braking. This is one of systems that highly enhances and improves driving safety. This is achieved by increased ability to control driving direction when braking the vehicle. The system is excellently proven on surfaces of both lowered and quite large coefficient of friction. Its large advantage is the option to prevent locking of one or even more vehicle wheels. Thank to this ability the system affects the vehicle braking distance. Generally, the main task of ABS is to enhance the braking process by appropriately controlled vehicle slid, while maintaining its possibly best steerability. The system is not installed in cars only to reduce braking distance, but it is also designed for assisting the proper vehicle driving direction to be kept when braking.
Thee main system components include valve system, speed sensors and electric pump. These components are connected with an electronic system. Due to the use of this system in cars it is easier to predict vehicle behaviour when braking.
Proper maintenance and service of your car should ensure proper operation of this and many other systems of such great importance, installed on your car. Smooth operation of ABS is of utmost importance in winter and early spring and late autumn when road conditions are highly deteriorated and driving a vehicle becomes much more difficult.
