The Ford Ranger Spectrum™ Brake Controller has been developed to work seamlessly and safely with our Ford Ranger CAN-bus towing solution. ERICH JAEGER is the experts and world leader in towing CAN-bus technology. All Ford CAN-bus towing solutions are manufactured in the same Q1 facility as our OEM solution that is supplied as Genuine parts to Ford.

The Spectrum™ trailer brake control system gives you powerful, precise braking operation in an extremely simple and subtle design inside your vehicle. It features an LED-equipped, rotary knob interface and a separate main module with an advanced triple-axis accelerometer. This allows for an OE look and feel to be maintained inside the cab of your vehicle. The separated design of the Spectrum™ brake control allows the main module to be mounted behind the dash of the vehicle, completely out of sight.

The interface of the Spectrum™ trailer brake control system is simple but powerful. It is a single rotary knob with a push-button in the center that allows the driver to adjust brake power output as well as the rate at which the brakes are applied. It is equipped with ten tri-color LEDs (red, blue and green) to show the automated power output of the control. There is no need for a separate display or additional controls, keeping the dash of your vehicle clean, professional and uncluttered.

Behind the Spectrum™ brake controller is a powerful main module with a new advanced auto calibrating inertia sensing system. Whatever your speed and whatever grade you are travelling on -- up or down a hill -- the Spectrum™ brake control produces the exact amount of power needed for a smooth, safe stop every time. The main module can be mounted anywhere, at any orientation with the included mounting brackets or adhesive patch.

The Spectrum™ electric brake controller is a fully compatible unit, able to operate up to eight trailer brakes at a time. It can be used on vehicles with ABS brakes and cruise control, and it works with low-voltage and PWM systems. Due to our extensive experience in CAN-bus technology, we have engineered the Spectrum™ to seamlessly integrate into the latest digital CAN-bus vehicle systems.
