For the Ultimate in Towing Safety, Choose an Electronic Brake Controller.
As diesel technology has rapidly improved in recent years, manufacturers like Gale Banks Engineering have stepped to the forefront of exhaust braking with ingenious diesel truck towing tools like their SpeedBrake electronic brake controller. What’s so special about the Speedbrake and other electronic brake controllers? For starters, they intercept signals from your engine’s computer, allowing them to monitor and make critical timely adjustments to your variable geometry turbocharger, your torque converter and transmission, allowing for maximum results in braking performance.
Installation of electronic brake controllers is simple and easy and requires not cutting of the exhaust for insertion of a manual exhaust brake. Electronic brake controllers use existing OEM plug in connections for installation, and they use your diesel’s own hardware to help you tow safely, meaning there are no additional mechanical parts you have to worry about using or installing.
Best of all, with brake controllers like the Banks SpeedBrake, you can opt to get a data monitor like the touch-screen Banks iQ monitor and command center. With these monitors, you can easily control the electronic brake controller functions and see all vital information with a quick glance. Now you can electronically control your transmission’s shift points, lock and unlock your torque converter automatically, and take advantage of the variable vanes in your turbocharger to hold your chosen set speed and get maximum stopping performance!
