RSX Motorsport ABS Kit

CES RSX Racing Brakes

Our new CES RSX motorsports ABS unit, based on our high-performance MK100, has been designed for all types of racing vehicles. Our new software approach provides the best braking performance in-class outperforming our competitors on bumpy courses such as the Nurburgring Nordschleife section.  Included with the kit is the IMU (6-DOF), an additional pressure sensor, mode switches, and all required connectors.

For race teams interested in purchasing 2 or more RSX HECU kits, these are planned to be available by the start of 2021 for racetrack applications only.

For individuals that wish to purchase the RSX motorsports ABS kit, CES is currently developing its dealership network to have the distribution network in place by July 2021.  The CES RSX motorsports ABS unit and kit are not intended for use on open roads.  They may only be used on race tracks or private property.

System Overview

ABS unit assembly (HECU)

  • Weight: 990 g
  • Dimensions: 154 x 105 x 111 mm³


Software Functions

  • Racing ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), tuned to maximum performance under racing conditions
  • Racing AYC (Active Yaw Control) optional
  • Racing Torque Vectoring optionally
  • Selection of 12 modes (max. stability … performance)
  • Independent function-OFF-switch
  • The setting of vehicle parameters by the usage of a set-up tool

Electronic Control Unit (ECU) – Outputs:

  • 1x CAN Interface (adjustable to 500kBit/s or 1Mbit/s)
    • Wheel Speeds (FL, FR, RL, RR)
    • Accelerations (X, Y, Z; -5g … +5g)
    • Angular rates (X, Y, Z; -156°/s … +156°/s)
    • Brake circuit pressures (Front, Rear)
    • Function activation flags
    • Mode selection states
    • Function disable flags
    • Warning lamps
  • Hardwired outputs
    • Warning lamps
    • Vehicle speed
    • Brake light

Electronic Control Unit (ECU) – Inputs:

  • 2x CAN Interface (separately adjustable to 500kBit/s or 1Mbit/s)
    • Steering Wheel Angle Sensor
    • Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
  • 4x Active Wheel speed sensors
  • 1x External brake pressure sensor
  • 1x 12-Position rotary switch (mode selection)
  • 2x Push button switch (function disabling)

Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU)

  • Brake circuit split: Front/Rear
    • allows the usage of brake balance bars
  • Unit will be delivered pre-filled
    • No complex fill & bleed procedure necessary
    • Conventional bleeding of the brake system is sufficient

Delivery Content

  • RSX Pre-Filled Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU)
  • Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
  • External Pressure Sensor
  • One 12 position rotary switch
  • Three electrical connectors for IMU, ECU and external pressure sensor
  • Bracket for HECU and IMU
  • SW Configuration tool
  • Installation and user manual


  • Our CES RSX Motorsport ABS system is designed for front-rear split applications. The system offers one internal and an additional external pressure sensor, which enables capturing the exact pressure on both brake circuits even if a brake balance bar is in use.  The result is more accurate control performance.
  • The kit includes a bracket to mount the Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU) for flexible integration into your vehicle. 
  • A configuration tool is included in the kit which enables you to customize the parameters to suit your target vehicle.
  • An additional external pressure sensor is also included.
  • The HCU is provided pre-filled to enable easy rapid integration and save you the trouble and complexity of bleeding the brake system.
  • Provides configuration support for third-party (only class-III type supported) steering wheel angle sensor or Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems.
