Components required to install a Tow-Pro Elite into a 24V vehicle
Electric/Hydraulic brake systems require signal from the brake controller as well as a separate power supply from the start battery to the hydraulic pump (usually via an Anderson plug).
A 12V vehicle fitted with a Tow-Pro Elite would not require extra components to operate an Electric/Hydraulic trailer.
A 24V vehicle fitted with a Tow-Pro Elite towing a trailer with Electric/Magnet type brakes will not need extra components however an Electric/Hydraulic braking system would require extra components.
Some Electric/Hydraulic braking systems can be sensitive depending on what electronics are within the hydraulic pump system. This means they may require a 12V input on the Red and Black wire of the Tow-Pro™ Elite, to prevent damage to these electronics. The 12V input on the Red and Black wires can be supplied using a REDARC EB24A
The REDARC EB24A:
• Converts a 24 volt brake signal to a 12V signal for the Tow-Pro Elite (Red wire)
• Allows the Tow-Pro™ Elite override button to switch on 24 volt brake lights
• Provides charge equalisation of the supply batteries so 12V can be supplied from the 24V battery bank
