1.1.43. Protivobuksovochny system (EDS)


Cars with anti-blocking system (ABS) can be in addition equipped with protivobuksovochny system with a pritormazhivaniye of a revolving wheel (differential blocking 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 movement in mountains.

Blocking of differential is carried out automatically, i.e. without any intervention of the driver.

The control unit blocking of differential supervises frequency of rotation of wheels by means of ABS sensors. If the paving under one party of the car slippery owing to what at speed to 40 km/h there is a distinction in frequency of rotation of driving wheels in size approximately in 100 rpm then by a podtormazhivaniye of a revolving wheel frequency of rotation of wheels is leveled, and by means of action of differential is transferred to other wheel the increased traction effort.

This process is noted by some appreciable noise.

Most effectively to use possibilities of blocking of differential, to the driver follows at a troganiye from a place to coordinate work as pedals of an accelerator and coupling with specific road conditions.


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

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

As soon as the brake mechanism will be cooled, the protivobuksovochny system with a pritormazhivaniye of a 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 rather whenever possible in the service enterprise Volkswagen.
