Hayman Reese launches remote mount proportional brake controller


May 18, 2015

The CompactIQ™ is one of Hayman Reese’s most sophisticated brake control units. This proportional brake control unit has been developed to make it both easier & less intrusive to install and provide the driver with greater control in braking situations.

 

The CompactIQ™ discreetly displays only two gauges. The dial and LED indicator can fit and be mounted in a spare switch panel rather than through the main dashboard or centre console. The brake controller is stored out of sight behind the vehicle’s dashboard - with only the control dials showing on the dash.

 

The Output Control Dial has two functions. It lets you set the minimum braking force of the trailer (otherwise known as the ‘Boost’ – a unique feature) and provides an over-ride function for additional braking power on the trailer when required. The over-ride force can be set by the user and is activated by pressing and holding the Output Control Dial.

The “Boost” feature gives users the ability to apply more or less braking power when necessary. By adjusting the Boost on the Output Control Dial, users can choose the minimum amount of braking force to apply when the brake pedal is first pressed. For heavier caravans and trailers more Boost can be used for greater braking control. This feature is unique to the CompactIQ™ as a remote mounted brake control unit.

 

The LED indicator shows the various states of the braking system through the use of different colours. It also confirms successful installation. Green indicates the system is connected and operating correctly. Red indicates that the system is active and applying the trailer’s brakes. A flashing red light means there is a connection fault.

 

Installation is as simple as plug and play. The CompactIQ™ is SmartClick™ compatible, meaning no soldering or scotch-locking of the vehicle is required if the unit is installed using a Hayman Reese Towbar and wiring harness. Installation is just as easy for vehicles which do not have a Hayman Reese Towbar and wiring harness thanks to Hayman Reese’s vehicle specific installation instructions.
