Intergrated Brake Controller with Hill Descent Assist
We are authorised suppliers and mobile installers of WiTi Integrated Brake Controllers with Hill Descent Assist for caravans and trailers.
The WiTi integrated brake controller requires installation of the full WiTi suite including the wireless interface which comes with the WiTi anti-theft system.
WiTi now offers an integrated brake controller with ground breaking Hill Descent Assist. The WiTi Brake Controller connects to the Vehicle Unit with a dash mounted dial for gain adjustment and manual override. The WiTi Brake Controller offers two significant safety innovations, Hill Descent Assist and Brake Smoothing.
Hill Descent Assist improves safety and control when descending steep hills. All proportional brake controllers use inertia to determine the braking force applied to the brakes. The firmer the braking the more inertia is generated and braking is applied on the caravan or trailer in proportion. However, when descending steep hills the driver of the tow vehicle typically feathers the brakes to maintain speed - this generates no inertia as there is no deceleration. As a result there is no braking applied to the caravan or trailer and the tow vehicle is being pushed down the hill. WiTi Hill Descent Assist eliminates this by measuring the angle of descent and applying the brakes relative to the gain setting on the dash mounted dial. The steeper the descent the more braking is applied resulting in a safer more controlled descent.
No other brake controller offers Hill Descent Assist- another global innovation for WiTi.
Brake Smoothing eliminates the sharp and annoying jerking that may occur with other brake controllers. With WiTi the output to the electric brakes on the caravan or trailer is measured and smoothed electronically to provide a more comfortable and safer towing experience and eliminating harsh jerking under firm braking.
If you have already invested in a break controller, it will work seamlessly although Hill Descent Assist and Brake Smoothing are proprietary technologies to WiTi. WiTi takes the output from the 3rd party brake controller converts it to a digital signal and transmits it to the trailer or caravan. Most modern brake controllers available in Australia have been extensively tested and will operate seamlessly with WiTi.
Alternatively, we can also install Redarc and other brands of brake controllers.
