What is Knorr-Bremse’s
complete “one-stop solution” A perfect balance of high-quality systems and services.

?
for EMU/DMUs Knorr-Bremse’s expertise in the field has gone into every single component and system. Top-quality components operate
smoothly together to guarantee optimum functionality, high reliability and maximum safety. Complex electronic control sys-
tems such as blending and brake management reduce wear to a minimum by ensuring balanced operation of all systems. The
system can be configured either to use the vehicle bus system or a separate bus exclusive to the braking system. For each pro-
ject, customers are closely consulted at the design stage. And it goes without saying that Knorr-Bremse offers support during
the homologation process as well as all the necessary on-site services across the entire product lifecycle.

Innovations that pay their way.
Reducing wear and tear and maintenance costs is a good way of saving money. More than any other manufacturer, Bremse’s multiple unit solu-
Knorr-Bremse has succeeded in finely coordinating the complex interplay of different braking systems. Brake components that
are prone to wear are only used when the wear-free motor generator cannot cope on its own. Even then, patented ISOBAR tions are also world-leaders

rarely, and their design enables them to be serviced rapidly. The brake calipers themselves require low maintenance. These
examples demonstrate that if all the relevant factors are included in the calculation, the bottom line is savings for the custo-
mer.

Customized service packages ensure that all Knorr-Bremse systems function smooth-
ly for anything up to 30 years – anywhere in the world. The secret is our combination
of OEM expertise and a highly efficient service infrastructure.
