  • Patent number: 10351116
    Abstract: A pneumatic brake booster for motor vehicles, comprises a booster housing, the interior of which is separated into a working chamber and a low-pressure chamber by an axially movable wall that can be supplied with a pneumatic differential pressure; a control housing; and a control valve which controls a differential pressure between the working chamber and the low-pressure chamber. The control valve controls an airflow between the working chamber and the low-pressure chamber or a surrounding atmosphere. The control valve has a plate valve and a valve piston, a seal region of which can be sealingly placed on the plate valve and which can be moved in a stroke direction R. A fine and low-noise metering of the brake force is achieved by providing a throttle point between the valve piston and the plate valve for throttling the airflow dependent on the stroke.

  • Patent number: 9969373
    Abstract: A tandem master brake cylinder for a hydraulic motor vehicle brake system, which is impinged upon by a pneumatic brake booster, including at least one piston which is displaceable in a housing and has a plurality of follow-up connections the follow-up connections allowing a hydraulic connection between the pressure chamber and a pressureless follow-up chamber at the start of a braking operation. At least some of the follow-up connections are formed as transverse bores through a wall of at least one piston and are arranged at a same distance relative to the piston edge in a main plane, wherein the overtravel thereof by the sealing collar defines a closure path of the piston. In order to allow a smooth, quiet and yet sufficiently reliable braking initiation, the follow-up connections are arranged in a distributed manner on at least three planes, the planes being arranged at a distance to one another and in parallel to the piston edge.
