The Telligent® brake system, fitted as standard, comprises a regulated dual-circuit brake system, internally ventilated disc brakes all round, ABS, ASR and auxiliary brakes such as the engine brake or retarder. The system transmits every braking signal at lightning speed – much faster than any mechanical system could achieve. And it can be applied with the same degree of sensitivity you'd expect in a car. The braking force is distributed to the best possible effect between the tractor vehicle and the semitrailer or trailer depending on the load the vehicle is carrying. The Telligent® brake system also ensures that brake pad wear is spread evenly across all axles. Brake Assist can immediately identify a risky situation from the speed at which the brake pedal is depressed, and responds in an instant: full braking effect is activated. The integrated continuous braking function automatically causes activation of the service brake (constantly open throttle and brake flap) and, if present, the retarder. And the integrated hill holder can prevent unintended rolling forwards or backwards, making driving away easier and safer. The Telligent® brake system can also be supplemented with deactivatable ABS. This allows wheels to be deliberately locked when braking if the situation requires it in extreme off-road use.
