Electronic Damper Control

Electronic Damper Control (EDC) combines supreme driving comfort with similarly outstanding safety on the road. At the same time, the system consistently guarantees optimum vibration control regardless of the load the car is carrying. To attain this goal, all movements of the car which influence its driving behaviour are permanently monitored by sensors.

All measurements are then evaluated by a microprocessor and commands are sent to the dampers, where solenoid valves serve to infinitely adjust damper forces to changing road, load and driving conditions. Brake dive and body movements, for example on bumps, in bends or when accelerating, are reduced significantly. Furthermore, at the touch of a button the driver can choose the Sports program, making the suspension and dampers much firmer and more dynamic.
