This template displays inherited attributes of an element with respect to brakes. It is used in the attribute inheritedAttributes of Template:ElementDocu. It lists the attributes brakeType, airBrakeApplicationPosition, regularBrakeMass, emergencyBrakeMass, maxDeceleration and meanDeclaration and their possible values.
The template has twelve optional arguments to comment on the six described element attributes both in English and German:
The template depends on Template:Attr, Template:Enum, Template:OtherEnum, Template:Deu and Template:AddAnn. There are no templates building on it, but it is used in the context of Template:ElementDocu, within the attribute inheritedAttributes.
- brakeType: This names the type of brake producing the brake effort. According to the way of controlling the brake application one of the following values should be selected:
- none no brake at all
- compressedAir (pneumatic) brake system using compressed air to press the brake shoes onto the wheels or brake discs.
- vacuum brake system using vacuum in the control pipe. The brake shoes are pressed onto the wheels by means of athmospheric air pressure.
- handBrake manually applied brake by turning a handle or a lever which operates a gear/rod assembly with brake shoes
- parkingBrake mainly spring applied brake used to keep a parking vehicle stationary
- cableBrake brake applied by a cable running along the train

- other:anything: Any value that does not fit any value from the previous enumeration list, fulfilling the constraint: at minimum two characters, whitespace is not allowed. Please, apply Dev:usingAny accordingly.
brake applied by any other mechanism
- airBrakeApplicationPosition: This is the setting for the air brake application defining the time span for activation. Possible values are:
- N/A not applicable as brakeType is not compressedAir
- G slow activation, typical for freight trains or Merchandises
- P fast activation, typical for passenger trains with speed up to 120 km/h
- R rapid activation, typical for passenger trains with higher speed
- regularBrakeMass: This is the brake mass in metrical tons for normal brake operations of none-automatic brakes.
- regularBrakePercentage (introduced with version 2.5): This is the brake percentage related to brake mass for normal brake operations of none-automatic brakes.
- emergencyBrakeMass: This is the brake mass in metrical tons for emergency brake operations of none-automatic brakes. It differs from regular brake mass depending on auxiliary brakes.
- emergencyBrakePercentage (introduced with version 2.5): This is the brake percentage related to brake mass for emergency brake operations, differs from regular brake percentage depending on auxiliary brakes.
- maxDeceleration: This is the alternative specification of maximum possible momentary deceleration in metres per square second. Typically this value is achieved near standstill.
- meanDeceleration: This is the alternative specification of effective mean deceleration of a whole brake operation in metres per square second.
