CENTRAL HYDRAULICS IN MOTOR VEHICLES. FIRST STEPS IN A NEW DEVELOPMENT

DIE ZENTRALHYDRAULIK IM KRAFTFAHRZEUG. ERSTE SCHRITTE IN EINE NEUE ENTWICKLUNG

Hydraulics is used in many applications in motor vehicles: in the braking and steering systems, impact damping and drive systems, operating and auxiliary equipment. It is economical to link the various systems to a central energy supply source. For reasons of traffic safety, or where the auxiliary force fails, the limits for the operating force at the brake pedal and the steering wheel should not occur simultaneously as otherwise the average driver may assume that both units have suddenly failed and can therefore react incorrectly. It is thus absolutely necessary to secure the braking and steering equipment "outwardly". /TRRL/
