Electric Brake Controller Installation

Electric Brake Controller Installation

It’s required by law in Australia any trailer weighing over 750 kg must be braked. The tow vehicle must under go the necessary modification of installing an electric brake controller to adhere to the law ensuring safety on our roads.

There are two different types of electric brake controller; proportional and time delayed. Proportional brake controllers use motion sensing technology to ascertain the speed of the towing vehicle slowing down and so slows the towed vehicle at a proportional speed. Time delayed brake controllers deliver a programmed amount of power to the brakes when the towing car or truck slows to a stop. This amount is preset by the driver and is largely reliant upon how much weight they are towing.
