Regular price $645.00 Sale

Electric-Hydraulic Brake Actuator
Drum Brake Model
Generates 1,000 psi for use with drum brakes

Tuson ActuLink electric-hydraulic brake actuator has many one of a kind features which place it in a new class of brake actuator. But the feature which makes it truly revolutionary is that it is networked with your tow vehicle so it has the ability to brake in a collaborative way. The DirecLink Network puts the ActuLink brake actuator well above and beyond the competition.

Patented Digital Data Network

When used in combination with the DirecLink NE brake controller, automatically creates a digital, two-way data network over the existing wires of your tow vehicle and towable. ActuLink and DirecLink NE let you monitor the status of your towable braking system like never before.

When the Unexpected Happens

No other electric-hydraulic actuator is designed to help you when the unexpected happens. When the electrical connections go bad or the brake fluid leaks out a broken fitting, ActuLink sends an immediate alert to the display of the DirecLink NE. With other actuators, you don’t know about the problem until the trailer brakes stop working

One of a Kind ABS Capability

No other electric-hydraulic actuator has anti-lock towable braking capability. This capability reduces emergency stopping distance and greatly improves the stability of the towable during braking, especially in wet conditions.

Self Monitoring Diagnostics

  • ActuLink is controlled by a network computer that is linked to internal and external sensors which monitor key parameters.
  • It is the only network connected electric-hydraulic actuator so all these parameters can be checked from the driver’s seat with the DirecLink NE. And, if a problem arises, a warning will automatically be displayed on the DirecLink NE
  • ActuLink, in combination with the DirecLink NE, is the only electric-hydraulic actuator that can monitor:
    • Brake fluid level
    • Actuator system temperature
    • Actuator low current condition
    • Actuator over current condition
    • Trailer battery volt level under load

Bleeding the Brakes

Need to bleed the trailer brake system and have no one to help out? DirecLink NE has a simple aid to make this possible. Plug a standard telephone extension cable (the length needed to reach the trailer brakes) into the Control Module of the DirecLink NE, unplug the Command Module from its spiral cable and plug it onto the other end of the extension cable. Now you can use the manual over-ride to actuate the brake system for bleeding.

The Brake Controller We Recommend: DirecLink-200NE

The ActuLink actuator is designed to function optimally with Tuson DirecLink-200NE Brake Controller (see brochure for more information), and we strongly encourage you to use this brake controller with the ActuLink actuator. When the ActuLink is paired together with the DirecLink-200NE, a two-way digital diagnostics network is established using the existing wiring of your tow vehicle and trailer. With the DirecLink-200NE, you can now monitor all the following diagnostics from the driver's seat:

  1. Brake fluid level
  2. Actuator system temperature
  3. Actuator low current condition
  4. Actuator over current condition
  5. Trailer battery volt level under load
  6. Trailer battery amp level under load
