2.2 Electrohydraulic disc brakes

Electrohydraulic disc brakes
Electrohydraulic disc brake types FBT and FPT are spring applied failsafe brakes that act on a disc. The brake is released by means of an electrohydraulic device called TURBEL. The TURBEL is a three-phase AC electrohydraulic thrustor. The brake shoes carry asbestos free linings. The main shafts are made in stainless steel with self-lubricating bushes. The brake includes a torque scale.
ANTEC offers in its electrohydraulic disc brakes the ETS technology (Eccentric Transmission System), an exclusive system of ANTEC that provides a force transmission based on an eccentric system, simplifying and lightening the brake, making it more simple and easy to handle and therefore reducing its maintenance cost.
