CURT

CURT, the leading manufacturer of USA-made hitches and a complete line of towing products, introduced two new, innovative brake controls: The Spectrum in-dash unit and the Assure with a high-quality OLED display screen.

The new Spectrum brake control #51170 is comprised of a dynamic user interface and a separate main module. The interface is a simple rotary knob with an integrated push-button and ten tri-color LEDs. It mounts on the dash of the vehicle for a clean, unobtrusive, OE look. This single knob allows the driver to control and monitor all trailer brake activity. No other controls or displays are needed. The separate main module of the Spectrum mounts behind the dash, out of sight.

The new Assure brake control #51160 features a professional-grade interface and has a unique manual override feature. It has a 128 x 64 dot matrix OLED display screen that shows trailer brake activity in a full message readout for enhanced usability. The display can also be flipped up at multiple angles for the best possible view. The manual override of the Assure brake control allows power to be applied anytime and in any amount, giving the driver more control on the road.

Both the Spectrum and Assure operate with a triple-axis accelerometer, providing highly responsive, smooth stops on any grade. They also install easily with any of CURT's vehicle-specific quick plug harnesses.
