How Does Our Electric Brake Controller Work?

Elecbrakes is a trailer mounted proportional trailer brake controller, wired directly into the trailers electrical circuit. Elecbrakes draws power from the taillight circuit as well as the brake light circuit ensuring sufficient power is available for up to two braked axles.

Braking is triggered by positive voltage being applied to the brake light circuit. Once braking is triggered Elecbrakes uses Microprocessors and Accelerometers to calculate and provide precise brake response

Elecbrakes connects wirelessly to the in-car remote control and the user's smartphone. This enables intuitive adjustments while driving as well as access to a manual override. The smartphone app allows the user to set brake responses according to trailer load or driving conditions by calibrating five preset programs.

All of the preset programs are stored within the device on the trailer, ensuring any user can download their own copy of the smartphone app and will still have access to the Elecbrakes' preconfigured settings.
