Brakes India with JV partner ZF today announced the successful production of the first Electric Park Brake (EPB) system with a global OEM, marking the first launch of its kind for the Indian market.

EPB is part of an ongoing commitment of the company to help enhance overall brake system performance, driver safety and comfort. In addition to providing park brake functionality, EPB is a fully integrated part of the brake system with features such as dynamic actuation, brake pad wear sensing and reduced degradation associated with mechanical systems. The EPB also helps in enhancing safety in emergency situations with full-four wheel anti-lock functionality versus standard park brake which provides emergency park brake on the rear axle only.

ZF offers a range of EPB solutions including standard EPB, integrated EPB, which eliminates the need for a separate Electronic Control Unit (ECU) since it is integrated with the electronic stability control system, and EPB for front axles which is more suitable for smaller vehicle segments.

With a strong fifty-year long partnership, Brakes India and ZF are set to enhance their presence in the Indian market by introducing the latest braking technology and helping to take the safety of vehicles to the next level in one of the fastest growing markets in the world.
