How It Works

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 upto 2 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 uses the best in bluetooth 4 technology, the device connects to the Elecbrakes in car controller, allowing the user to set brake responses according to trailer load or driving conditions.

All of the preset programs are stored within the device on the trailer, ensuring any user has access to the preconfigured settings.  

Once the device is connected to an in car controller the device will not pair with another bluetooth controller.

The Technical Stuff

Elecbrakes employs a high-speed microprocessor and various sensors which continuously sample the operating parameters over 1,000 times per second.

For communication, the device uses the widely adopted Bluetooth 4.0 standard, and the hardware selections yield a Bluetooth device that has long range capability ensuring high connection reliability and no dropouts under typical operating conditions. This ensures that the device can be mounted anywhere on the trailer's draw bar.
