Rear brake fluid application is controlled according to wheel speed, degree of wheel slip and rate of deceleration. The main components of the system are an electronic brake control module, a hydraulic pressure control valve, a speed sensor and a sensor exciter ring, Fig. . A standard master cylinder and power booster are used.

Upon brake application, fluid pressure exerted against the caliper piston increases equally in all directions, creating the same pressure in the caliper bore and on the piston.
