- This JaegerCANtrol© Digital module by Erich Jaeger facilitates communication with the vehicle control modules using CAN-bus.
- Shows importance of an LED compatible trailer module such as the JaegerCANtrol when using trailers or carriers with LED lights.
JaegerCANtrol© Digital Control Module
The JaegerCANtrol© Digital module has been designed to be used in modern cars with CAN-bus technology. (Controlled Area Network). This allows the auxiliary wiring harness to integrate with the vehicle CAN-bus system in order to manage and control various critical functions. Inside the module is a microprocessor that has been programmed specifically to communicate with the other control modules of the vehicle.
The JaegerCANtrol© Digital module controls and monitors all the lighting functions on the trailer or rear carrier. It can also check for a bulb failure on the trailer and warn the driver with increased flasher frequency and/or a warning on the instrument cluster. In addition to lighting functions, it also supports various safety and comfort features such as rear parking sensor deactivation, trailer stability programs, blind spot monitoring systems and advanced braking systems.
The JaegerCANtrol module microprocessor is programmed for each specific vehicle make and model to ensure seamless communication through the vehicle CAN-bus system thereby enabling central control of all trailer lighting functions.
The module has been tuned to work with the wide range of LED trailer lamps used in this market. Additional load resistors are not required.
