Train EPB Brake Data Blueprint

Electro-Pneumatic Brakes or EPB Brakes are a variation on Air Brakes used almost exclusively on Multiple Unit trains. When Air is used to propagate the braking signal along a train, there is inevitably some lag while the change in pressure travels down the length of the train. EPB braking gets around this by transmitting an electronic signal down the train to activate the brakes on each vehicle.

Standard air brake equipment is normally also provided as the safety system for backup purposes.
