Electromechanical parking brake

The electromechanical parking brake offers many advantages over the conventional handbrake, such as AUTOHOLD or dynamic drive off assistant. The brake actuators are electromechanical and integrated in the brake callipers of the rear wheels.

The educational electromechanical parking brake (EPB) model, MSEPB1 is based on original Audi/VW brake components and built for easy demonstrations and the principle of operations. The cutaway is made to show how the help of an electric motor, a multi-staged gear mechanism and a spindle drive, convert the command to “actuate the parking brake”, which brings the brake pads in contact with the brake discs.
