A new dual-circuit brake system for increased safety and controllability of heavy-duty vehicles is discussed. Through the common foot application valve, the driver has complete braking control during either normal or emergency conditions. Achievement of design objectives is explained via system and component function under various modes of operation. Reliability is vital to a brake system, and assuring a high level of component product quality is achieved by automated production testing and periodic validation of compliance with engineering specifications
