NEW CONCEPT IN BRAKES FOR BART CARS

Automatic control blends dynamic and hydraulic disc brakes for a smooth, fast non-slide stop with use of electro-hydraulic disc brakes. These operate under solid-state automatic control, which blends the hydraulic disc brake into the dynamic braking of the motors. An advantage of hydraulic brakes in their quick-acting ability to respond to the electro-hydraulic controls which detect skids and momentarily ease braking. The hydraulic disc brake linings will last 20 to 25 runs; however, when working with dynamic braking, the linings normally last longer.
