New ATE MK60 Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) Available as Original Part for Aftermarket Replacement

  • Provides precise braking for increase safety and reduced wear.

Allentown, PA July 16, 2018 – Continental offers the new ATE MK60 Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) as an original part available for aftermarket replacement. It eliminates the need to replace the entire brake control (ECU) unit when only the HCU needs replacement. Vehicle applications cover popular Volkswagen and Volvo models.

The ATE MK60 provides precise braking by repeatedly lowering and raising the brake pressure to increase driving safety and reduce overall wear. To help ensure greater safety in extreme conditions, the ATE MK60 HCU works to increase directional stability, provide better maneuverability, and deliver a shorter braking distance, especially in wet conditions. Plus, in the event of electronic unit failure, drivers will not lose the ability to brake normally.

Continental engineers designed the ATE MK60 to make ABS service as simple and trouble free possible. Installation is as easy as removing the entire Hydraulic & Electronic Control Unit, replacing the old HCU with the new ATE MK60 HCU, and attaching it to the Electronic Control Unit.

According to Dan Caciolo, Head of Product Management for Continental Independent Aftermarket Powertrain & Brake Systems, “The ATE MK60 HCU is a fantastic innovation from ATE engineering and a smart aftermarket solution from Continental that saves time and money. It was designed to simplify service by allowing technicians to avoid replacing the ECU when just the HCU needs to be replaced.”

The ATE MK60 HCU component package includes all necessary parts needed to complete installation including motor, valve block, retaining device, two new screws, six stop plugs for the old HCU, and assembly instructions.
