Description

Anyone who has already encountered critical driving situations with their vehicle combination will know how sensitively trailers react at high speeds – and what dangers can threaten! Minor lane change manoeuvres, side winds on bridges or wind pressure when overtaking trucks can cause the trailer to start swinging. There is a significant danger of the trailer "snaking" and becoming uncontrollable. Anyone who has experienced the benefits of AL-KO Trailer-Control will never again want to tow a vehicle without the aid of the electronic braking system. For your car you can trust ESP and for your trailer you can rely on ATC.

How the ATC Trailer-Control works

  • ATC sensors measure the slightest lateral acceleration directly from the axle of the trailer as soon as the vehicle combination starts to skid
  • The ATC immediately brakes the trailer automatically. The driver barely notices the electronically controlled correction
  • Within a few seconds ATC has brought the vehicle combination back under control and driving safely. The trailer is brought back on track and under control automatically.

Automatic: The safety check

  • The 13-pin plug establishes the electrical power supply to the car
  • The ATC Trailer-Control system automatically starts a function test
  • The LED on the overrun device lights up green. The system is 100% functional

AL-KO 2LINK Connectivity System and ATC

AL-KO 2LINK brings the relevant information of the ATC system to your smartphone. The 2LINK Box is the basis for this, which sends data to the smartphone via Bluetooth LE. The free 2LINK app allows you to view the current status of the ATC system on your smartphone. The ATC status display is already integrated into the 2LINK system. You will find further information on the various components of AL-KO chassis technology here.
