The handlebars for steering, brake levers for stopping, throttle levers for speeding up engine movement, and a number of electrical switches to regulate electrical features like lights, a winch, and ignition are the main controls of an ATV.
A thumb-operated throttle lever is standard equipment on ATVs, and it functions similarly to the gas pedal in a car or the twist throttle on a motorcycle. Utilising an electrical or electromechanical technology, the lever regulates the throttle by transferring the motion from your thumb to the carburetor.
Some older or less expensive ATVs connect the lever and the carburetor with a continuous steel cable. The ATV’s front and rear brakes are controlled by the hand brake lever, which is situated on the handlebars.
The hand brake lever is the preferred method of braking for most riders. It’s a good idea to always have one or two fingers on the brake lever when riding actively or at a high speed to shorten reaction times and stopping distances. The hold around the handlebars should always be maintained by the other fingers.
Your foot must depress the pedal in order to engage the brakes. To disengage the brakes, elevate your foot and release pressure. To engage the parking brake, the majority of ATVs have a locking mechanism on the hand brake lever. Against the handlebar, squeeze the lever and depress the parking brake lock.
The high beam on the headlights is turned on by pressing and holding this switch. Once the button is released, the light will go back to low beam. Other drivers can be warned using this capability. You can switch between the various speedometer display modes and features using the mode switch.
These features can include an odometer, trip counter, battery voltage, and engine rpm counter, albeit they differ between ATV brands and models. Most contemporary ATVs are equipped with a rev-limiter that is intended to stop unintended, rapid acceleration when going backwards.
Unintentional acceleration can occur when the rider inadvertently presses the throttle while moving in reverse with their leg or hip.
The Global All terrain vehicle (ATV) parking brake market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
ZF has introduced a Front Electric Park Brake, a first for the industry, expanding the applicability of Electric Park Brake (EPB) systems to a wider variety of vehicles.
This technology allows automakers to eliminate the traditional handbrake lever and park brake pedal from interior designs while fitting smaller vehicles with cutting-edge braking systems. Along with the standard park brake function, the EPB also makes it easier to start up hills, for instance using the Auto-Hold function.
The stop-and-go feature of the braking system considerably improves driving comfort in city traffic or congestion. Additionally, the front axle’s increased static load distribution contributes to improved safety when parking the car on slick surfaces.
ZF’s front axle EPB requires only minor adjustments to the front axle calipers and eliminates the parts required for manual park brake function within the rear drum- and disc brakes while incorporating the required electronic parts and software into an existing ESC control unit. This can help the rear manual park brake system weigh less in the vehicle.
