  Here's How Electronic Parking Brakes Work

Quickly fading are the days when we were free to dream of cranking a lever connected to cables that would squeeze the brakes and break traction, as more and more modern cars replace cabled emergency and parking brake systems with simply a button. But there’s a lot of good reasons for it, so here’s how electronic parking brakes work.

The Man Behind Koenigsegg Explains Why The Handbrake Is Dying

Back in the early 2000s BMW was in a revolutionary phase of car design, and with the introduction of the all-new E65 7 Series, it also introduced its internet-age interior including the first electronic parking brake system, where the function was now activated by a little button to the left of the steering wheel.

a car parked in a parking lot: Look how far we’ve come. Look how far we’ve come.

Where before most cars activated their parking brakes either by a lever next to the driver’s seat or by pressing down on a little locking pedal in the driver’s footwell, which were both connected mechanically by cables leading to the rear brakes, a new age of production cars had been introduced utilizing the convenience of electronics.

The user-end of most electronic braking systems is fairly straightforward and uniform, where the driver can activate the parking brake with the push of a button, but the business end where the actual friction happens can take a few different forms.

The first of the two most common electronic parking brake (EPB) systems still involves mechanical cables, but instead of having the cables run up the length of the car to be tugged on by the driver, the cable from each brake caliper leads to a remote motor.

This has never stopped owners from going to the aftermarket to equip their rides to tow a small utility trailer, but this practice does risk denial of any powertrain warranty claims.

The motor is either controlled by its own electronic control unit, or by the car’s control unit. When the EPB button is pushed, the signal is sent to the motor to pull on the cable, which squeezes the brake pads down onto the disk and the holds the car in place.

For the E65 BMW 7 Series, the motor was conveniently located under the floor of the trunk, making it easily accessible for repairs. That’s a good thing, as this video from AutoTech USA demonstrates, because of the plastic motor gears that tend to break and require replacement. The video also gives you a good idea of how the cable puller system works:

As is pointed out by Auto Service Professional in their parking brake breakdown article, this system has the advantage of using parts, like the caliper, that are consistent with traditional mechanical parking brake systems that already use cables. That advantage makes a cable-puller EPB system an easy add-on to anything that does not already have the system.

Tesla Model 3 Gets CR Recommendation After Braking Update

  Tesla Model 3 Gets CR Recommendation After Braking Update Consumer Reports now recommends the Tesla Model 3, after our testers found a recent over-the-air update improved the car's braking distance by nearly 20 feet. The software update came a week af ter Consumer Reports published test results that showed stopping distances for the Model 3 that were significantly longer than any other contemporary car. That braking performance, along with issues with the Model 3's controls and ride comfort, initially prevented the car from getting a CR Recommendation.

To many people, electronic parking brake (EBP) is a new feature in their car, therefore knowing how the system works can go a long way when conducting a system repair. Primarily, the traditional handbrake has a straightforward mechanism; when you pull the level up and the cables

The second most common type of EPB system dumps mechanical cables entirely. The caliper-integrated braking system uses two little motors attached to each rear brake caliper, with each motor pushing the caliper piston which squeezes the pads to the disk. The animation below shows how the piston operates:

As Auto Service Professional also points out, this drastically reduces the amount of real estate the parking brake system takes up, since you don’t have cables leading away from the caliper to a motor box. The caliper-integrated motors also streamline the design and make it easier to integrate with other computer-controlled vehicle systems.

In the press release for the E65 7 Series, BMW sang the electronic parking brake’s praises as both a convenience and a safety feature. The electronic parking brake allowed for activation anytime the car came to a standstill, which caused less worry when stopped on a hill or in creeping traffic, and if held down, it also acted as a stabilizing emergency brake.

There is also a controllable cool-air inlet with two electronically controlled vents. They are released when the drivetrain components need cooling or the AC condenser requires ventilation, with the top one opening first. When the hydraulic wheel brakes are working hard, the controllable cool-air inlet releases two ducts that send cooling air into the front wheel arches to the brakes.

Another added advantage was protecting the vehicle “from unauthorized use,” as the brakes would be locked when the engine was switched off and only unlocked with the return of the electronic key. Other advantages of current-day electronic parking brake systems involve coordination with traction control systems and parking assist systems.

Beyond convenience and safety, electronic parking brake systems also improved interior packaging for designers. As the man behind Koenigsegg once explained to Jalopnik, not having to carve out space for a parking brake pedal or lever, as well as the cable linkage which would also need to be insulated, adds flexibility to the interior design.

The drawbacks to electronic parking brakes are the potential for slightly more complex and costly maintenance and repairs in some cases, and of course the loss of the ability to Tokyo Drift your long wheelbase German limousine.

But for the vast majority of drivers, the advancement in safety and convenience with what is essentially an idiot proof system is worth the loss of a direct connection with their parking brake.
