An electronically operated wedge will replace hydraulic brakes. Then, hydraulic lines and hoses, brake fluid, fluid containers and brake booster will no longer be necessary. The brake pad is pulled downwards when it contacts the disk (servo effect, comparable with leading shoes on drum brakes). In this way, the 12 Volt vehicle electrics are completely sufficient for the operating engine. Further benefits: no blocking of the wheels, no pedal pulsing, quicker reactions.
- Movement of the floating brake caliper to the left and right
- Turn the threaded spindle, observe movement of the brake wedge until it has contact to the brake disk
- When the threaded spindle is turned further, one sees how the floating brake caliper moves to the right and the other brake pad likewise makes contact with the brake disk
