Mercedes Sensotronic brake-by-wire SBC systemMercedes Benz were one of the first vehicle manufacturers to employ a brake-by-wire system on a car.
Called sensotronic (SBC), the system no longer relies on the driver to produce hydraulic pressure. The
brake pedal is connected to the computer (ECU) by wire (brake-by-wire). The sensors on the brake
pedal will inform the computer how the pedal is pressed, eg how far, how fast etc. The computer will
then dissipate the required force to each wheel via modulators.
Fitted to higher end Mercedes (E Class, SL & CL Class, CLS etc) problems can occur with the ECU.
BBA can remanufacture the sensotronic module covered by a 2 year warranty.
