Tech/Engineering - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / Bogie Frame of Electric Locomotive
German term or phrase: Kompaktbremszangeneinheit
"An den Kopfquerträgern sind Konsolen zur Befestigung der Kompaktbremszangeneinheiten integriert. Der Rahmen wird nach UIC 615 sowie weiteren betrieblichen Belastungen ausgelegt."

Talking about the bogie frame of an electric locomotive. I have got the slightest idea what a "Kompaktbremszangeneinheit" is, other than it's obviously something to do with brakes or braking. Searches for "Bremszangeneinheit" or just "Zangeneinheit" aren't really revealing anything. TIA for your assistance.
