Automatic Differential Brake

The Automatic Differential Brake (ADB-X) is a subfunction of the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) in all-wheel drive vehicles. It has the same effect as that of a differential lock - braking an individual wheel - meaning that the standard differential lock is no longer necessary.

If a wheel threatens to spin, ADB-X can automatically apply brake force until grip is re-established and power transmission can commence again. When DSC has been activated, ADB-X is complemented by engine performance regulation; when DSC is off, ADB-X delivers maximum power, while dispensing with engine regulatory systems and stability control. The brakes are also protected from overheating.
