Electric Park Brake
TRW is the leading supplier of advanced parking brake systems worldwide and was first-to-market with its Electric Park Brake (EPB) on a mass production vehicle in 2001. There are more than 15 million TRW EPB calipers on world roadways today.
TRW's EPB enhances vehicle safety, driver comfort, convenience, and allows for greater freedom of vehicle interior design and packaging. TRW has further developed its Electric Park Brake technology and can offer integrated solutions (EPBi) and front axle configurations (EPB front) as a cost effective solution in order to address requirements for the A and B segment vehicle market. EPB brakes are designed to reduce drag and save weight versus traditional mechanical parking brake options and enhances safety in emergency stop situations, with full four-wheel anti-lock functionality versus conventional park brake emergency braking, which only functions on the rear axle.
