Boat trailers over 2,000kg typically use an electric over hydraulic brake system, this is due to complete electric brake systems not being viable in the marine environment.
The electric over hydraulic brake systems requires a control signal from an electric brake controller, Elecbrakes provides this functionality and furthermore allows the user to precisely adjust the proportional brake response to suit the towing conditions.
Electric over hydraulic actuators will activate according to the brake controller setting selected. Elecbrakes provides programmable reverse brake response, allowing the user to fine tune the brake response when reversing down the launching ramp.
When using Elecbrakes with hydraulic actuators we highly recommend that you seek the guidance of the actuator manufacturers. Please check their wiring guide and instruction manual for installation and operational requirements before purchasing your Elecbrakes unit.
Elecbrakes is installed on the trailer rather than the car: A simple solution for anybody who has multiple tow vehicles used to transport their boat.
Elecbrakes gives boat owners the flexibility of towing their float with any suitable vehicle without the hassle of hard-wiring a electric brake controller into each new vehicle. This is achieved by installing the system on the trailer rather than the car.
A wireless in-car controller allows you to configure up to 5 user defined brake programs. This allows the driver to precisely configure and save brake responses for changes in trailer weight or driving conditions such as when towing the trailer empty, fully loaded or in off road conditions.
