Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Electronic stability control (ESC) systems help control the vehicle’s lateral and longitudinal stability

ESC systems combine anti-lock brakes (ABS) and traction control with a lateral stability control function. These systems are specifically designed to help control and maintain the lateral stability of the vehicle. If a potential loss of vehicle control is sensed, ESC is capable of automatically applying brake pressure to the appropriate wheel(s) and, if necessary, cuts engine throttle to help bring the vehicle back in line with the driver’s intended path

Advantages

  • Help OEMs meet CO₂, regulatory and NCAP compliance for active safety systems
  • Applications from very small vehicles up to light truck segments
  • Several additional versions available:
    • ESC high dynamic can deliver faster apply speeds to help meet increasing Euro NCAP and automatic emergency braking (AEB) requirements.
    • The ESC premium system utilizes a six piston pump architecture and is designed to provide a higher level of performance through increased pressure apply build rates for emergency braking situations (automatic emergency braking) and driver assistance systems
    • ESC hybrid enables brake blending of up to 0.25 g deceleration within the EBC460 architecture. It uses a conventional actuation system with the ability to detect travel sensing in order to provide excellent cost, weight and package characteristics.
  • Cost-optimized by modular system design and standardization
  • Compact design, light weight and small package size with industry standard interface
  • High integration capability with other vehicle safety systems
  • New microprocessor generation with significantly extended RAM / ROM size and speed
  • NVH reduction and increased motor lifetime through high frequency motor speed control
