DirecLink Base Proportional Trailer Brake Controller (DL-100)
It’s A Network Computer
It links with your tow vehicle’s computer network and uses multiple data parameters in a proprietary way to create amazingly proportional trailer braking.
Low-Speed Brake Adjustment
A unique feature of the DirecLink 100 and 200NE brake controller. Many drivers struggle to find a single brake scale setting that works to their satisfaction for all speeds covering highway and in-town driving. This forces the driver to either settle on one scale setting that works OK at high speed and does not lock the brakes up at low speeds or constantly change the settings. The Low-Speed Brake Adjustment is a secondary adjustment to the main “Brake Scale” setting. Once the main Brake Scale is set at the preferred braking level at highway speeds, the Low-Speed Brake Adjustment can be set to add or reduce the brake level at lower speeds. This allows for the proper amount of braking for both highway and in-town driving. Once the two adjustments are made, the DirecLink stores the settings in memory to keep them when the vehicle is turned off.
Easy Installation and Set-up
DirecLink automatically syncs with your tow vehicle - just plug it in and let it do the configuring for you. Raise or lower the level of braking and you’re ready to go. No holes to drill, no directional mounting.
Large Color Display
The large color display makes it easy to use the DirecLink as a diagnostic tool for your towable brake system to ensure that all monitored functions are good or to resolve any problems.
Electric Drum or Hydraulic
DirecLink works with electric drum brakes and electric-hydraulic actuators, automatically configuring to match your trailer’s brake type.
DirecLink uses exactly the same computer network that controls your car, truck or SUV so you can count on this proven technology. By linking the data of your tow vehicle to your trailer brake system, both vehicles work seamlessly together.
DirecLink maintains complete situational awareness because it continuously monitors your tow vehicle’s computer network. When you apply the brakes, it has a complete picture of what is happening. DirecLink creates precise braking curves to match the rapidly changing demands of your trailer brakes.
