The brake system for locomotives consists of an automatic pneumatic brake, which is controlled by pressure changes in train brake pipe, electro pneumatic train brake, which sends brake application and release signals to the train control centre, a direct acting electro pneumatic brake and a parking and an additional brakes. Train brakes can be controlled both manually (by the engine driver) or automatically. Usually the brake system is installed in one container, which allows having all the system grouped in a single block. The engine is also equipped with a DAKO wheel slide protection system.
