REDARC, leading Australian advanced manufacturer is pleased to announce that after being tested by Melbourne Trailer and Caravan Supplies, Australian Dexter Distributor, for compatibility with the Dexter Sway Control (DSC) system, the recently launched Tow-Pro electric trailer brake controller has been certified as approved for use on trailers fitted with DSC systems.
REDARC, who recently won the 2014 Telstra Australian Business of the Year, released Tow-Pro in June 2014.
Tow-Pro offers motorists for the first time in the one unit, the choice of engaging either inertia sensing or user controlled braking on electric trailers, by turning a dial inside the towing vehicle.
Inertia sensing, or automatic mode, measures the braking force applied by the towing vehicle and applies the electronic trailer brakes to a proportional degree. It’s mostly used for highway towing whereas user controlled braking, is more suitable for off-road towing and gives the driver full control of the brake level.
The DSC system is a critical safety item to stabilize the sway of a trailer or RV by continuously monitoring trailer side-to-side, left and right movement of the tow vehicle.
REDARC’s Managing Director, Anthony Kittel said the Tow-Pro is a world breakthrough in electronic brake controllers which offers greater safety for motorists towing heavy trailers and caravans.
“Our business model is based on innovation and working with partners such as Melbourne Trailer and Caravan Supplies demonstrates our commitment to the industry” he said.
