Electronic Differential Lock

The Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) applies brake force with the utmost precision to a rotating drive wheel up to a certain speed and then transfers the torque to the other wheel.

An additional hydraulic pump is responsible for this transferral: if a pre-determined torque value for the wheels is exceeded, the pressure is rerouted via a magnetic valve to a faster-turning wheel, thereby braking it.
