Elecbrakes – Portable Electric Brake Controller

Share article

Elecbrakes is a remote mounted portable electric brake controller that is installed directly on the trailer or caravan rather than the tow vehicle, eliminating the need to modify your tow vehicle. There’s no need to pay for expensive, chassis damaging tow vehicle alterations with this Australian made solution.

An Elecbrakes unit allows you to use any vehicle, with the correct towing capacity to tow your trailer or caravan. Installed in as little as 10 minutes with no specialist knowledge or skills required.

How Does This Portable Electric Brake Controller Work?

Elecbrakes is wired directly to your caravan’s electrical circuit. Drawing it’s power from the taillight circuit as well as the brake light circuit to ensure there is sufficient power for up to two braked axles. Braking is then triggered by positive voltage being applied to the brake light circuit. The portable electric brake controller calibrates and activates the caravans brakes based on your driving for a seamless towing experience.  This device uses high speed microprocessors and accelerometers to calculate and provide precise brake response. Connects wirelessly to the in-car remote and your smartphone, enabling intuitive adjustments while driving, as well as access to the manual override. Along with the smartphone app that allows users to set the brake responses according to the load and driving conditions.
