What can Continuous Damping Control (CDC) provide?

Continuous Damping Control available as CDCivo and CDCevo solves the conflict between driving safety and ride comfort by setting the damper - and uncompromisingly. Whether fully loaded or only with the driver, the CDC®-system adjusts the optimum damping wheel-individually according to the driving situation.


The Technology

A central control unit calculates the ideal damping forces for every individual wheel using the vehicle data determined by sensors. The CDC system adjusts in compression and rebound the optimum damping within a range of characteristic curves from hard/safety-oriented to soft/comfort-oriented. A vehicle-specific characteristic adjustment can be realized via the valve system, depending on customer request.

CDC with sensor cluster technology

Body acceleration sensors are no longer exterior but rather integrated into the ECU. Sensor data are still compiled centrally and evaluated, as in the external system. Damping is adjusted within milliseconds on the basis of these data.
