Mico Full-Power Brake System
July 7, 2009

Mico offers a Full-Power Brake System with ABS and Traction Control to provide added control for multi-wheeled vehicles operated both on and off-highway. The system enhances vehicle stability while decreasing stopping distances and improving acceleration under low traction conditions. As many as eight wheels can be controlled independently of the others, which makes the system easily adaptable to four-wheeled, six-wheeled and eight-wheeled vehicles. The electronic control unit (ECU) monitors wheel speed and brake line pressures with sensors added to the machine. When wheel lock-up or wheel slip conditions exist, the electronic control unit’s embedded software algorithms determine the current needed at the electrohydraulic control valves to improve the operator’s control of the vehicle.
