VDC/TCS/ABS : System Description

  • The system switches fluid pressure of each brake caliper and each wheel cylinder to increase, to hold, or to decrease according to signals from control unit in ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit). This control system is applied to VDC, TCS, ABS and EBD functions.
  • Fail-safe function is available for each function and is activated by each function when system malfunction occurs.

INPUT SIGNAL AND OUTPUT SIGNAL

Major signal transmission between each unit via communication lines is shown in the following table.

Front RH brake caliper

- Brake fluid is conveyed to the pump from the master cylinder through suction valve 1 and is pressurized by the pump operation. The pressurized brake fluid is supplied to the front RH brake caliper through the ABS IN valve. For the left caliper, brake fluid pressure is maintained because the pressurization is unnecessary. The pressurization for the left caliper is controlled separately from the right caliper.

Front LH brake caliper

- Brake fluid is conveyed to the pump from the master cylinder through suction valve 2 and is pressurized by the pump operation. The pressurized brake fluid is supplied to the front LH brake caliper through the ABS IN valve. For the right caliper, brake fluid pressure is maintained because the pressurization is unnecessary.

The pressurization for the right caliper is controlled separately from the left caliper.

Rear RH wheel cylinder

- Brake fluid is conveyed to the pump from the master cylinder through suction valve 2 and is pressurized by the pump operation. The pressurized brake fluid is supplied to the rear RH wheel cylinder through the ABS IN valve. For the left wheel cylinder, brake fluid pressure is maintained because the pressurization is unnecessary.

The pressurization for the left wheel cylinder is controlled separately from the right wheel cylinder.

Rear LH wheel cylinder

- Brake fluid is conveyed to the pump from the master cylinder through suction valve 1 and is pressurized by the pump operation. The pressurized brake fluid is supplied to the rear LH wheel cylinder through the ABS IN valve. For the right wheel cylinder, brake fluid pressure is maintained because the pressurization is unnecessary. The pressurization for the right wheel cylinder is controlled separately from the left wheel cylinder.

Front RH brake caliper

- Since the cut valve 1 and the suction valve 1 are closed, the front RH brake caliper, master cylinder, and reservoir are blocked. This maintains fluid pressure applied on the front RH brake caliper. The pressurization for the left caliper is controlled separately from the right caliper.

Front LH brake caliper

- Since the cut valve 2 and the suction valve 2 are closed, the front LH brake caliper, master cylinder, and reservoir are blocked. This maintains fluid pressure applied on the front LH brake caliper. The pressurization for the right caliper is controlled separately from the left caliper.

Rear RH wheel cylinder

- Since the cut valve 2 and the suction valve 2 are closed, the rear RH wheel cylinder, master cylinder, and reservoir are blocked. This maintains fluid pressure applied on the rear RH wheel cylinder. The pressurization for the left wheel cylinder is controlled separately from the right wheel cylinder.

Rear LH wheel cylinder

- Since the cut valve 1 and the suction valve 1 are closed, the rear LH wheel cylinder, master cylinder, and reservoir are blocked. This maintains fluid pressure applied on the rear LH wheel cylinder. The pressurization for the right wheel cylinder is controlled separately from the left wheel cylinder.

Front RH brake caliper

- Since the suction valve 1 and the ABS OUT valve are closed and the cut valve 1 and the ABS IN valve are open, the fluid pressure applied on the front RH brake caliper is reduced by supplying the fluid pressure to the master cylinder via the ABS IN valve and the cut valve 1. The pressurization for the right caliper is controlled separately from the left caliper.

Front LH brake caliper

- Since the suction valve 2 and the ABS OUT valve are closed and the cut valve 2 and the ABS IN valve are open, the fluid pressure applied on the front LH brake caliper is reduced by supplying the fluid pressure to the master cylinder via the ABS IN valve and the cut valve 2. The pressurization for the left caliper is controlled separately from the right caliper.

The pressurization for the right wheel cylinder is controlled separately from the left wheel cylinder.

- Since the suction valve 1 and the ABS OUT valve are closed and the cut valve 1 and the ABS IN valve are open, the fluid pressure applied on the rear LH wheel cylinder is reduced by supplying the fluid pressure to the master cylinder via the ABS IN valve and the cut valve 1. The pressurization for the left wheel cylinder is controlled separately from the right wheel cylinder.

Front RH brake caliper

- When the cut valve 1 and the ABS IN valve opens, brake fluid is supplied to the front RH brake caliper from the master cylinder through the ABS IN valve. Brake fluid does not flow into the reservoir because the ABS OUT valve is closed.

Front LH brake caliper

- When the cut valve 2 and the ABS IN valve opens, brake fluid is supplied to the front LH brake caliper from the master cylinder through the ABS IN valve. Brake fluid does not flow into the reservoir because the ABS OUT valve is closed.

Rear RH wheel cylinder

- When the cut valve 2 and the ABS IN valve opens, brake fluid is supplied to the rear RH wheel cylinder from the master cylinder through the ABS IN valve. Brake fluid does not flow into the reservoir because the ABS OUT valve is closed.
