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
The 'Trailer-Wired' model functions identically except it is spliced directly into your trailer's wiring. This means that when you connect your trailer to your vehicle you simply plug the trailer cable into your tow vehicle's socket as you would normally. This installation results in less external visible cables which provides a sleeker look. This option is popular with customers using an installer.
