The new light-weight ECS combines service and parking brake functions in a single caliper body, thanks to the gearmotor. This technology is an addition to the existing Brembo EPB product range composed of the Brembo Extrema caliper and the stand-alone Electric Parking. The ECS caliper provides excellent braking performance ensuring parking brake activation at any temperature and in any conditions, thanks to the optimized friction material, Brembo said.
The new Brembo caliper also has the hot-brake reclamp feature. When the vehicle is parked on a slope, the software automatically activates the caliper to recover the thermal deformation of the disc and pads to help the car from sliding down steep slopes.
The new ECS caliper will initially be available in blue, and shortly after the oxidized black and orange painted versions will be introduced.
