Magnetic Track Brakes (MTB) are used if high decelerations are needed e.g. during an emergency brake. The MTB increases the brake force above the rail/wheel adhesion limit by providing additional contact surface.
Wabtec provides fist class light weight solutions for MTBs with a very flat design concept to fit also small space envelops.
