power brakes

power brakes
(PB) A conventional hydraulic brake system that uses engine vacuum to operate a vacuum power piston, the power piston applies pressure to the brake pedal, or in some cases, directly to the master cylinder piston. This system reduces the amount of pedal pressure that the driver must exert to stop the vehicle. Also called "vacuum-assisted brakes" or "hydraulic-assisted brakes." Also see brake booster.
