Electric Brake Unit Operating Instructions
The in cab controller must be connected at all times and located within easy reach of the Driver.
Plug in the hand controller to your cigarette lighter socket
The Vehicle park, or head-lights must be switched on when towing the trailer. This energises the trailer side of the system and also will allow the trailer batteries to charge.
Check the plug and socket of the trailer and tow vehicle are securely connected and that the trailer lighting functions all work correctly. A faulty or intermittent lighting connection could mean the brakes do not operate correctly.
Ensure the break away cable is securely fastened to the vehicle.
Test the emergency brake is working. First adjust the gain control setting to read 75%. Depress emergency stop button fully, and begin to pull forwards while still holding the button down. The trailer brakes should lock the wheels.
Do not use the emergency stop feature or breakaway function as a parking brake.
Emergency Brake – When activated, this will apply the trailer brakes at 75% of the current gain setting. This can be used to control trailer sway situations and stop the vehicle combination in an emergency.
Gain Setting – The plus button will increase the maximum brake percentage, and the minus button will decrease it. This should be set so the vehicle will brake to a halt without the trailer wheels locking up. An effective benchmark is to perform a brisk stop on a straight flat stretch of road from 30 kph. The vehicle trailer combination should halt without the trailer wheels locking. Increase or decrease the gain setting until the trailer is braking at just under the lock up level. Ensure conditions are safe around you before carrying out this procedure.
Sensitivity – This will control how quickly and aggressively the brakes will activate, with 1 being the least and 5 the most aggressive. Pressing this will advance the setting from 1 up to 5 and then back to 1.
Screen – This will provide feedback about the operation of the controller and warn of any faults that might occur.
