A REVOLUTION IN BRAKE CONTROLS

Spectrum Brake Controller
Dash mounted OEM looking controller. Includes a No Drill mounting option. Patent Pending
 
Dash Mount Brake Controller
Tri-Colour LED display provides valuable feedback to the driver regarding the application of the trailer brakes as well as setting modes.
 
Brake Contyroller Kit
Kit includes a no-drill option for mounting the rotary knob.
 
Brake Controller Prepared
ERICH JAEGER Towing kits are already brake controller prepared which means they have the connection point for the brake controller already provided. They have been developed to work seemlesly with our CAN-bus JaegerCANtrol and JaegerTronic trailer modules.
 
Specttrum Brake Controller Modes
The 10 LED display clearly shows the four operating modes.
 

 

SpectrumTM: Innovative design. Stylish appeal.

 

When the leader in vehicle towing electrical interconnects, ERICH JAEGER ASIA PACIFIC, wanted to develop a New Generation brake controller, they teamed up with the FIRST name in towing products and the leader in brake controller design, development and technology, CURT Manufacturing USA.

The result is a revolution in brake controls, The SpectrumTM, Innovative Design, Stylish appeal. Jointly designed, developed and tested for Australian conditions.

The Spectrum™ trailer brake controller gives you powerful, precise braking operation in an extremely simple and subtle design inside your vehicle. It features an LED-equipped, rotary knob interface and a separate main module with an advanced triple-axis accelerometer. This allows for an OE look and feel to be maintained inside the cab of your vehicle. The separated design of the Spectrum™ brake control allows the main module to be mounted behind the dash of the vehicle, completely out of sight.

The interface of the Spectrum™ trailer brake controller is simple but powerful. It is a single rotary knob with a push-button in the center that allows the driver to adjust brake power output as well as the rate at which the brakes are applied. It is equipped with ten tri-color LEDs (red, blue and green) to show the automated power output of the control. There is no need for a separate display or additional controls, keeping the dash of your vehicle clean, professional and uncluttered.

Behind the Spectrum™ brake controller is a powerful main module with a triple-axis motion-sensing accelerometer. This advanced circuit is able to detect the inertia of the vehicle and trailer on all axes of three-dimensional space. Whatever your speed and whatever grade you are travelling on -- up or down a hill -- the Spectrum™ brake control produces the exact amount of power needed for a smooth, safe stop every time. The main module can be mounted anywhere, at any orientation with the included mounting brackets or adhesive patch.

The Spectrum™ electric brake controller is a fully compatible unit, able to operate up to eight trailer brakes at a time. It can be used on vehicles with ABS brakes and cruise control, and it works with low-voltage and PWM systems. Due to our extensive experience in CAN-bus technology, we have engineered the Spectrum™ to seamlessly integrate into the latest digital CAN-bus vehicle systems.

The Spectrum™ installs in ten minutes or less, when used in conjunction with our Erich Jaeger vehicle specific towing harness kits. These wiring harnesses are vehicle-specific and provided a prepared connection point for our Spectrum™ brake controller. The Spectrum™ also has automatic leveling and calibration features to simplify the setup process.
