Timed or Proportional Brake Controllers
Electronic trailer brake controllers fall into two general categories: timer-based brake controllers and proportional brake controllers. All brake controllers generate an output signal to a trailer brake system when you first touch your brake pedal or activate the brake controller's manual control, if equipped. What happens next varies depending on whether you're using a timed or proportional brake controller.
Installing brake controllers today is as easy as plug and play when using a brake controller wiring adapter and a brake control with a wiring port built into the back of the unit. Be sure to add a wiring adapter that is vehicle specific for quick and easy installation.
