WHEN THE BEST IS JUST ABOUT GOOD ENOUGH
During recuperation, the electric motor adds an additional braking torque to the wheels. This is compensated with a reduction of brake pressure by the brake-by-wire system. Having no restrictions on the IBSe pressure target, this results in a considerably greater degree of freedom in terms of managing recuperation. Our customers can fully exploit the vehicle’s recuperation capacity without disturbing the vehicle dynamics.
Brake-by-wire systems from LSP are situated between the brake pedal and the wheel brakes. An optional pedal simulator, which is individually adjusted for each customer, ensures constant pedal feel for the driver throughout the entire race – completely independently from the recuperation strategy.
The LSP system can adjust any wheel pressure in less than a tenth of a second. This means brake balance can be optimally controlled in real time. The simple and proven CAN interface is quickly installed, and the system adapts itself automatically to a new brake system or vehicle.
All LSP brake-by-wire systems comply with the IP67 seal classification and are subjected to numerous shaker, climatic chamber, endurance and sealing tests during development, thus conforming with the highest quality standards.
To ensure drivers are not only first to cross the finish line, but also that they do so without accident or injury, LSP uses integrated electronics with proven fail-safe routines and 100% self-diagnosis features (system status, communication, pressure-volume characteristics, leakage). The hydraulic fall-back provides additional safety, especially during integration of the system into the vehicle.
