Protivobuksovochny system with snubbing of a wheel (EDS)

GENERAL INFORMATION

Cars with anti-blocking system (ABS) can be in addition equipped with protivobuksovochny system with snubbing of the revolving wheel (blocking of differential with electronic control).

Thanks to blocking of differential it is possible to keep quite acceptable road performance of the car (if at all it is possible in this situation) under adverse road conditions, at towage, dispersal and the movement in mountains.

Blocking of differential осуществля etsyatsya automatically, i.e. without any intervention of the driver.

The control unit blocking of differential controls the frequency of rotation of wheels by means of ABS sensors. If the paving under one party of the car slippery owing to what there is a distinction in the frequency of rotation of driving wheels, at a speed up to 40 km/h by a podtormazhivaniye of a probuksovyv of a yushchy wheel the frequency of rotation of wheels is leveled, and the increased traction effort is transferred to other wheel by means of action of differential.

This process is noted by some noticeable noise.

That it is the most effective to use possibilities of blocking of differential, follows the driver at start-off from the place to coordinate work as pedals of an accelerator and coupling with specific road conditions.


Prevention

At dispersal it is necessary to operate on the slippery paving covered, for example, with ice and snow with an accelerator pedal very carefully. Driving wheels can be turned even contrary to blocking of differential that will negatively affect controllability of the car.


In order that the brake mechanism of the braked wheel too strongly did not heat up, blocking of differential at especially big loadings is automatically turned off. The car remains is efficient and keeps the same traction and dynamic qualities as the car which is not equipped with protivobuksovochny system with snubbing of the revolving wheel. For this reason indication of shutdown of protivobuksovochny system with snubbing of the revolving wheel is not provided.

As soon as the brake mechanism is cooled, the protivobuksovochny system with snubbing of the revolving wheel automatically joins again.

When the control lamp of ABS lights up, it can indicate also violation in work of this protivobuksovochny system. It is necessary to address to the service enterprise Volkswagen whenever possible rather.


Prevention

Style of driving has to correspond to a condition of a paving and traffic conditions always. The increased traffic safety of the car reached thanks to protivobuksovochny system with snubbing of the revolving wheel should not be the cause for risky driving.
