Aus­tralian ad­vanced-elec­tronic man­u­fac­turer Redarc Elec­tron­ics have been at the fore­front of elec­tronic brake con­troller de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing since the first re­lease of their Tow-Pro in the early part of 2014. Over the years, Redarc have made fur­ther re­fine­ments to their elec­tric brake con­trollers, con­stantly im­prov­ing its tech­nol­ogy and in­tro­duc­ing new fea­tures which cul­mi­nated in the cur­rent it­er­a­tion of the Tow-Pro Elite, re­leased in 2015. The Tow-Pro Elite has been the re­cip­i­ent of sev­eral awards in­clud­ing a Global Me­dia Award at SEMA and is a sim­ple to op­er­ate and user-friendly brak­ing so­lu­tion that of­fers two types of brak­ing in the one unit; pro­por­tional and user con­trolled. Pro­por­tional mode is used mainly for high­way driv­ing, mean­ing the trailer brakes are ap­plied at a com­par­a­tive level to that of the ve­hi­cles brak­ing, ensuring smoother, safer trailer brak­ing re­sponse. User con­trolled mode pro­vides the driver with greater con­trol of the brake level, with a sim­ple ad­just­ment of the knob al­ter­ing the brak­ing level to the de­sired re­sis­tance, with 1 of­fer­ing the light­est brak­ing set­ting through to 10 with more re­sis­tive trailer brak­ing. The Tow-Pro Elite pro­vides brak­ing con­trol at your fin­ger­tips with a dash mounted con­trol knob, that re­quires min­i­mal dash space, has no in­tru­sion on driver’s legs within the cabin and re­mains com­pletely ac­ces­si­ble at all times. Ad­di­tion­ally, a sim­ple push of the dash mounted knob ac­ti­vates a man­ual over­ride fea­ture which then ap­plies brakes to the trailer only. A fea­ture specif­i­cally de­signed for use when the trailer brakes need to be ap­plied with­out the ve­hi­cle brakes, ideal for sit­u­a­tions when the trailer sways whilst driv­ing. The Tow-Pro Elite can also op­er­ate both elec­tric and elec­tric/ hy­draulic trailer brakes with­out the need to change any set­tings and will op­er­ate from ei­ther a 12 or 24-volt ve­hi­cle sys­tem for use in a wide range of ve­hi­cles. No matter what you are tow­ing, or us­ing to tow it with, Redarc’s Tow-Pro Elite has the power to stop you safely and com­fort­ably. For se­cu­rity, peace of mind and safety when tow­ing, Redarc is the lead­ing brand for elec­tric brake con­troller sys­tems.
