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.

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 means the device can be mounted anywhere on the trailer’s draw bar with no detriment to the wireless connection.

What is an Electric Brake Controller and Why Do I Need One For My Caravan?

The choice of brakes and brake controller you use with your caravan is one of the most important decisions you can make for safety, performance and road rule compliance.

Legally, any caravan towed in Australia above 750kg GTM must be fitted with brakes. Above 2,000kg these brakes must be electric. In New Zealand, any trailer above 2,000kg must have braking and they must be electric above 2,500kg. The most popular and by far the safest type of caravan brake is an electric brake. If you have an electric brake you’re also required to have an electric brake controller.

Wireless vs Hardwired Electric Brake Controllers

Traditionally, electric brake controllers had to be hard-wired into your tow vehicle. This meant every time you wanted to change cars, let a friend borrow your camper trailer or hire out your caravan, the tow vehicle had be fitted with a brake controller as well.

We’ve solved this dilemma by completely rethinking how electric brake controllers are installed and operated. Our key innovation is mounting Elecbrakes on the caravan rather than the car. This is a simple solution for anybody who isn’t able modify their vehicle or simply doesn’t want to commit to costly alterations.

For more detailed information on the benefits of a wireless brake controller for caravans compared to the traditional hardwired alternatives, check out this blog post.

    • Install yourself for free in under 10 minutes.
    • Once it’s installed on your Caravan, you can operate from multiple tow vehicles with a wireless controller.
    • Caravan mounting means no modifications to your tow vehicle, no holes cut into your dashboard.
