Electronic Brake System (EBS)

Immediate response and maximum stability are key features of Scania's electronic braking system.

Scania EBS (electronic braking system) gives you the best possible control of your braking. It provides instantaneous brake response with immediate application and release in direct proportion to pedal pressure. And because fast and simultaneous brake release helps to overcome ‘brake drag,’ it also saves fuel. Brake drag occurs when the brake release on some axles is momentarily delayed (a traditional pneumatic braking system reacts more slowly than electronic actuation).

EBS greatly enhances stability in all conditions and eliminates much of the unnecessary stress associated with emergency stops. Such an immediate, balanced and stable response is not possible with even the most sophisticated pneumatic arrangement.
