In order to meet increasing requirements in regard of safety, comfort and networking the electric parking brake is progressively replacing the mechanical hand brakes. In addition to the improved safety and comfort for the customers it offers the car manufacturers more freedom and options for the vehicle's interior design.  The Electric Parking Brake in general replaces the mechanical activation via the hand brake lever by an electrical switch and electromechanical actuators building up the required clamp forces.  The EPB-Ci is the industry's mainstream product within the portfolio of EPB solutions being developed by Continental. It realizes the required brake torque via electromechanical actuators being directly mounted to the rear axle calipers. To meet car manufacturers' expectations to reduce cost, weight and size, Continental offers an integrated version. Here the controls and power stages are integrated into the ESC controller.
