Best-in-Class Reliability - In 1998, New York Air Brake introduced its second generation locomotive electronic air brake system—CCB II (Computer Controlled Brake). It is designed to provide best-in-class reliability and to meet the railroad industry's demand for increased locomotive availability.

CCB II is a microcomputer-based system designed to provide full automatic and independent brake control for mainline locomotives. Its network-based design permits faster response, and its self-diagnostic routines and LRU (line-replaceable unit) approach reduce maintenance costs.
