REDARC has released the next generation of its award-winning TowPro Elite V3 electronic brake controller.
This is the 3rd generation of REDARC’s Tow-Pro brake controller with the original released in June 2014 and the acclaimed Tow-Pro Elite released in September 2015.
This next-generation Tow-Pro Elite retains the same name as its predecessor and continues to set the benchmark in trailer brake control technology which has seen it become Australia’s favourite and most trusted brake controller.
Like previous generations, the new Tow-Pro Elite provides users with the ability to swap between Proportional mode (inertia sensing) for highway driving conditions and User-Controlled mode for off-road driving.
Even smoother braking capabilities
Software upgrades have been included in the next generation Tow-Pro Elite which will result in smoother braking for motorists towing heavy trailers and caravans.
Compatible with all modern vehicles
The next-generation Tow-Pro Elite ensures compatibility with all new vehicle technology and also still features Active Calibration, works with Electric and Electric/Hydraulic trailer brakes, supports 12 or 24 volt vehicle systems and ensures an ADR approved installation. It has also been approved by AL-KO for use with their ESC and DSC systems.
New-look control knob
The main enhancements to the upgraded Tow-Pro Elite relate to the size and installation of the user interface (remote head). A change to the shape, length, size and depth of the remote head will allow a quicker and easier installation of the Tow-Pro Elite. It also ensures the remote head will fit into thicker and curved dashes found in European vehicles and trucks.
The new TowPro Elite V3 is also designed to work with modern vehicles and selected TPSI switch inserts and TPW wiring kits, with its installation able to be further enhanced with the use of a 7amp Encapsulated Protection Device suitable for both 12 and 24v applications.
TOW-PRO WIRING KITS
REDARC Tow-Pro wiring kits are available in 11 vehicle specific kits, directly compatible with 16 popular 4WD vehicles. The wiring kits provide ‘Plug and Play’ style connectivity. Each vehicle specific wiring kit will ensure installation will now become quicker and more convenient.
The introduction of REDARC’s Tow-Pro V3 included an upgrade to the data cable that connects the Remote Head to the Main Unit.
• V&V2 utilised a CAT5 cable with twin RJ45 connectors
• V3 utilises automotive grade 8 pin connectors
The popular REDARC TPWKIT’s will for a period have both the V2 CAT5 cable and new V3 cable included.
For TPWKIT’s already in the field that require a V3 cable, contact REDARC directly to organise delivery.
REDARC have a range of Tow-Pro Elite V3 remote head wiring cables in lengths from 1m – 6m to increase the flexibility of installation, while a range of US vehicle specific wiring harnesses provide the ability to connect the Tow-Pro Elite directly into the factory towing package connector behind a vehicle dash.
