ABS on the Rails

High-speed trains are an essential part of efficient transport infrastructure in any modern industrialised country. But train travel speeds of up to 250km/h and more place enormous demands on brake system mechanical components and control electronics.

For the last 15 years, ETAS tools have helped Knorr-Bremse AG to develop the software for managing and controlling these crucial safety-related systems.

For high-speed trains, the brake concept is a key element of the safety plan. It encompasses brake force management, comprising the optimum distribution of the brake force over the various brake systems throughout the entire train, specific actuation of the friction brakes, anti-skid / anti-slip protection, and rolling monitoring, as well as the recovery of electrical energy during braking.
