Abstract

The invention relates to an electronically regulated brake system comprising a central control device (Z

1; Z

2) and at least one pressure control valve (A). According to the invention, the electronically regulated brake system additionally includes at least one pressure regulating valve (B) and/or at least one pressure regulating module (C).

Description

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING

Embodiments of the invention are depicted in the drawing and are explained in greater detail in the following description. The single FIGURE in the drawing shows a matrix, in which schematic examples of the electronically controlled braking system according to the invention are depicted.

Claims

1. An electronically controlled braking system comprising:

2. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 1, wherein the at least one pressure regulation device is a pressure regulation valve provided between two of said pressure control valves.

3. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 2, wherein the pressure regulation valve is one of two pressure regulation valves provided on front and rear vehicle axles.

4. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 2, wherein the pressure regulation valve is one of three pressure regulation valves provided on a front vehicle axle, a first rear vehicle axle, and a second rear vehicle axle.

5. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 2, wherein the pressure regulation valve is one of three pressure regulation valves, one of the pressure regulation valves provided on a front vehicle axle, and two of the pressure regulation valves provided for side-by-side triggering of pressure control valves of wheels on first and second rear vehicle axles.

6. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 2, wherein the pressure regulation valve is provided on a rear vehicle axle, and wherein two other pressure control valves are provided on a front vehicle axle.

7. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 1, wherein said at least one pressure regulation device is a pressure regulation module which further provides adjustment to rotational behavior of braked wheels by allocating a higher share of slippage to one of the braked wheels.

8. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 7, wherein the pressure regulation module is provided on a rear vehicle axle, and wherein two of said pressure control valves are provided on a front vehicle axle.

9. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 1, wherein the wheel slippage-dependent control provides at least one of anti-lock braking control, traction control, and driver-independent brake actuation.

10. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 1, wherein the at least one pressure regulation device includes a pressure regulation module on a front vehicle axle which further provides adjustment to rotational behavior of braked wheels by allocating a higher share of slippage to one of the braked wheels, and a pressure regulation valve on a rear vehicle axle provided between two of said pressure control valves.

11. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 1, wherein the at least one pressure regulation device includes two pressure regulation valves respectively provided, between respective pairs of said pressure control valves, on a front vehicle axle and a first rear vehicle axle, and a pressure regulation module on a second rear vehicle axle which further provides adjustment to rotational behavior of slippage to one of the brakes wheels.

12. The electronically controlled braking system according to claim 1, wherein the at least one pressure regulation device includes a pressure regulation valve, between a pair of said pressure control valves, provided on a first rear vehicle axle, and two pressure regulation modules respectively provided on a front vehicle axle and a second rear vehicle axle, each of the pressure regulation modules further providing adjustment to rotational behavior of braked wheels by allocating a higher share of slippage to a respective one of the braked wheels.
