Mico Inc.’s brake-by-wire system combines the control flexibility of electronics and the power of hydraulics to create a more versatile braking system. Ideal for on- and off-highway applications, the brake-by-wire system offers numerous advantages to traditional mechanical braking. The brake-by-wire system replaces the traditional mechanical braking linkage and pressure-modulating valve with an electronic pedal and angle sensor, an electronic control unit and an electrohydraulic modulating valve (EHV). The angle sensor reads the brake pedal angle and sends an electrical signal to the electronic control unit (ECU). The ECU, which is programmable to set a vehicle’s braking characteristics, then passes current to the pressure-modulating valve that pressurizes the brakes.
