Network Enhanced Version
Proportional Trailer Brake Controller

The DirecLink NE (DL-200NE) is the network enhanced version of the DirecLink. It is designed for use with Tuson RV Brakes' ActuLink Electric-Hydraulic Actuator and ABS system. The DirecLink product line is the most advanced proportional trailer brake controller and diagnostic tool. Plugs directly into your tow vehicle’s computer network, automatically configuring your tow vehicle and trailer’s brake system. The large color display allows you to monitor your trailer brake’s system status and provides warnings when system errors or failures have happened.

Patented Digital Data Network

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

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.

Data and System Integrity

DirecLink NE’s data network sends braking data in a digital format to the ActuLink actuator and this information is verified with each rapid exchange of data. The DirecLink NE also monitors electrical connection and sensor data integrity to ensure the driver knows the exact status of the towable braking system.

Peace Of Mind With Diagnostics

DirecLink NE automatically displays an alert on its color screen to warn you of any system faults or failures. DirecLink NE’s diagnostics assure you all is well or provides you with the information you need to resolve a problem.
