How does the electronic braking system work on ebikes?

To conform to certain EU directives all e-bikes sold in the EU need to temporarily shut off power to the motor when the user brakes. This is a safety feature which prevents the motor from propelling the user at a time when they wish to stop. The sensors work by reading the position of the brake cables and when they shift from their position the system senses this and immediately cuts power to the motor, even if you’re still pedalling.
