Rapid Prototyping Brake Development Kit

The Rapid Prototyping Brake Development Kit from Continental Engineering Services (CES) is the ideal platform for rapid development, evaluation, or impact analysis.

Based on the Continental MK 100® series brake solution, our Electronic Brake System consists of a pump and pressure modulating unit with solenoid valves and a pressure sensor. The Control Unit enclosure is automotive series quality, proven in use.

System Overview

The CES Brake Development Kit is connected to the hydraulic brake booster which serves as a hydraulic brake fluid source. Each wheel is hooked up to a dedicated port allowing individual wheel control.  The Rapid Prototyping Interface of the Brake System is connected by means of a Controller Area Network (CAN 2.0B) to a Rapid-Prototyping-Platform which exchanges status information and actuation requests.


  • Simple to use well-documented CAN interface
  • Integrated pressure sensor
  • Available for Front-Rear or Diagonal split
  • Suitable for Front-, Rear- and All-Wheel driven vehicles
  • No configuration required
  • Mounting bracket included
  • Electrical connector included
