ATC - AL-KO Trailer Control

The tried and tested anti-snaking system from AL-KO boasts a new design and offers better responsiveness. The permanent signal evaluation as well as “attention mode”, which the system switches to in the case of an imminent danger, allows the ATC to respond faster than ever. The system, which utilises sensor technology and wheel brakes, responds with gentle braking in split seconds. As such, you are able to keep control of your vehicle combination in many dangerous situations and the new ATC provides even greater protection against dangerous snaking.

How the AL-KO Trailer Control works

There are situations which any driver dreads: Even minor avoidance manoeuvres, gusty winds or wind pressure when overtaking trucks or buses can soon cause the caravan to start snaking. In the worst case scenario, the caravan starts to snake and causes an accident. AL-KO offers an anti-snaking system with the ATC, which – similarly to ESP in cars –registers swaying movements on the caravan axle using a lateral acceleration sensor. A tolerance range for permissible lateral movements is stored in the system. If this is exceeded, the system intervenes, before the caravan is able to snake. The Bowden cables tighten causing the wheel brakes to be applied. The vehicle combination is stabilised and is guided back into the lane. The AL-KO Trailer Control brakes gently, but can be noticed by the driver. The brake lights do not otherwise light up.

Please note that the ATC does not influence the critical speed range for your caravan. It therefore does not affect the new requirements for a 100 km/h speed limit for caravans and other trailers.

The ATC is very versatile

You can use AL-KO Trailer Control for all caravans with an AL-KO chassis from a production date of 1998 and for Hobby caravans. Installation can be undertaken by more than one hundred AL-KO retailers in Germany. The ATC is connected to the junction box of the trailer and is thus powered. An operational check is automatically performed when the junction box is connected. A green LED on the start-up device indicates operational readiness. In contrast, connection to a 7-pin plug is not possible. Once installed, no maintenance is required for the AL-KO ATC.
