Make your vehicles safer & efficient with ZF's Electronic Braking System
The quality of the braking system contributes substantially to the safety of drivers, vehicles and cargo. The advent of technology has transformed the braking system landscape world-wide which led to the development of Electronic Braking System (EBS). As a pioneer in manufacturing active safety solutions, ZF is the first to market EBS globally for commercial vehicles since 1996.
Ever since its launch, ZF has sold over three million units of EBS globally to contribute to safer driving experience. With over five decades of experience in developing braking solutions for CVs, ZF's market-leading EBS provides exceptional brake performance and the full range of brake control functions, for tough CV applications. This solution recuperates energy in braking maneuvers of full-electric or hybrid drivelines.

How EBS functions
The advanced brake control solution transfers the driver’s deceleration request electronically to all braking system components to shorten response time, balance brake forces and provide efficient brake management between service and endurance brakes. Thereby, it provides comfortable braking experience independent of the load status and enhances driver comfort.
ZF‘s EBS operates with electronic signals. The EBS electronic control unit controls the system through these signals and can communicate with the individual components at any time. The valves on the brake cylinders generate the required braking pressure according to the control signals.
Speed sensors installed on the wheels of the vehicle for integrated ABS function constantly provide the EBS with up-to-date wheel speed information. Different integrated brake management functions detect any deviations from normal driving conditions and intervene in the driving process in the event of hazards. Apart from improving safety, ZF’s EBS function also optimises driving comfort and minimizes lining wear.
The ZF difference
As a global leader in manufacturing braking solutions for commercial vehicles, ZF’s products have stood the test of time.
