What can Anti-Lock Braking Systems provide?

ZF led the introduction of Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) to the commercial vehicle industry in North America, marking the turning point from passive to active safety. ZF braking systems are the gateway to higher levels of safety systems including stability control and collision mitigation systems such as OnGuard.


Pneumatic ABS For Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles

  • ZF provides a range of pneumatic ABS technology enabling vehicle manufacturers to select from a wide range of functionalities for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.
  • Helps to avoid slipping, skidding and jackknifing
  • Increases safety for the driver, vehicle and cargo, and other road users
  • Available in both 12V and 24V


  • The commercial vehicle industry's first modular braking system platform (mBSP) features a high degree of software standardization across both Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS) and electronic braking systems (EBS).
  • ABS and EBS components follow a similar packaging environment
  • Provides common braking system platform for EBS and ABS
  • Delivers easier customization and shorter time to market

Hydraulic ABS For Light- and Medium-Duty Vehicles
