Similar to the VMS-2, the VMS-3 is a spring applied, hydraulically released safety brake, but offers faster operation and superior performance, delivering a maximum static brake force of 300 kN (with 1-mm air gap), and 230 kN with 3-mm air gap of dynamic braking force, with the added benefit of infinite fatigue life.
