electronic differential lock (EDL) (English, Русский)

what is an electronic differential lock (EDL)?

Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) is a limited slip differential imitation - this is an electronic system that detects wheelspin via ABS sensors and applies brakes to spinning wheels. This results in the torque being transferred via open differentials to another wheel that has more traction.

For example, the system brakes the wheel that is raised in the air and spinning freely, and engine power goes to another wheel that is on the ground.

MB used such a system in the original ML-class SUV.
MB wrote that overheating was a potential problem.
The brake hardware can overheat, so a computer model is utilized to calculate expected brake temperature. Therefore a safe reserve can be programmed in.
Also the ABS hardware can overheat, though MB says it will take two minutes of continuous operation to do so.
