Introducing improved performance in an affordable, lightweight, easy-to-install anti-skid braking system for lighter turbine aircraft.
Available for the Eclipse 500/550, Beechcraft King Air B200/B300, and Pilatus PC-12, with other aircraft planned or in certification, Advent's eABS provides you with reliable, effective anti-skid braking in a lightweight, low-cost, easily-installed system designed especially for turbine powered aircraft up to 19,000 lb. MTOW.
Advent's eABS offers anti-skid braking without the need for power-boosted brakes, bulky and heavy hydraulic accumulators, and does not require modification to the existing landing gear or master cylinders. Installation can normally be readily accomplished during scheduled maintenance inspections or refurbishment.
Advent's eABS consists of left and right brake control modules, left and right wheel speed transducers, digital electronic control units and a combination ON/OFF switch and ABS-Fail INOP annunciator.
Advent's eABS technology is adaptable to heavier turbine aircraft equipped with power braking systems through the use of Advent's brake by wire technology and integration expertise. The Advent BBW eABS is currently in development for a military trainer.
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 anti-skid operation, the brake pedal pushes back, annunciating its operation. This feature will aid the pilot in knowing the braking limits of the airplane.
Low-Speed Cut-out – The system will not operate, in anti-skid mode, when aircraft speed is below 10 knots.
Touchdown Protection – Wheel speed must spin up to at least 85% of aircraft speed before brakes will operate.
Convenience – The non-invasive, easy-to-install system requires minimal downtime, either as a standalone installation or during scheduled maintenance. Typically as few as 5 days, depending on the aircraft type.
Customer Service and Warranty – An extended warranty covers the installation and parts.
