Brake master cylinder


The master cylinder converts brake pedal movement into hydraulic pressure. The activation of the brake pedal is based on the principle of the lever: the low pedal force is increased many times over by the master cylinder. The resulting hydraulic power is then transferred to the individual wheel brake cylinders via a branching main line.
