Bendix Hydro Boost Brake System
Bendix hydro boost brake system was designed by Bendix Corporation to simplify the engine compartment. The figure above shows the Bendix hydro boost brake system schematic.
The basic system consists of an open center spool valve and a hydraulic cylinder assembled in a single unit. The oil pressure is provided by power steering pump. Hydro-boost provides power assist to operate the dual master cylinder braking system.
The system is mounted on the engine compartment firewall, it is designed to provide specific brake feel characteristics throughout the wide range of pedal force and travel. A spring accumulator stores energy for reverse stops.
