Support ranges from complete turn-key system integration with STC approval to provision of eABS components and engineering support to customer engineering and certification teams.
For new aircraft in development that do not require power brakes, Advent's eABS offers complete anti-skid braking control without the need to incorporate expensive and heavy power-boosted brakes to obtain ABS capability and will work with any wheel and brake combination.
For retrofit to aircraft already equipped with manual brake systems, installing Advent's eABS does not require modification to the existing landing gear, wheels and brakes or master cylinders. Once an STC is issued, retrofit installation can normally be accomplished during scheduled maintenance inspections or when installing other upgrades, such as ADS-B.
Advent's eABS or derivative components are currently planned or being considered for civilian and military aircraft in both new production and aftermarket applications. Contact us for more information on these certifications or for an in-depth discussion on how we can assist you with your aircraft project.
System Performance - Better directional control and reduced stopping distance on runways contaminated with debris, water, ice and snow.
Tire Protection - Eliminates flat-spotted and blown tires during aggressive stopping on dry or contaminated runways.
Tactile Feedback - During eABS operation, the brake pedal pushes back, annunciating its operation, aiding the pilot in knowing the braking limits of the airplane.
Alternative to reverse thrust – Use of eABS eliminates risk of engine FOD and prop erosion in contaminated runway conditions.
Touchdown Protection – Wheel speed must spin up to at least 85% of aircraft speed before brakes will operate.
Low-Speed Cut-out – The system will not operate, in anti-skid mode, when aircraft speed is below 15 knots.
Customer Service and Warranty – Advent technical support is available on call or in the field. All eABS components and installation hardware are covered by a two-year warranty.
The ease of installation and simplicity of Advent's ABS system is a fantastic feature for customers who want their aircraft back in the air quickly.
