The Hayman Reese Guardian® IQ is loaded with features to improve control over your towed vehicle. Equipped with three level “Boost” functionality, Guardian® IQ allows you to incrementally increase the sensitivity of the brake control’s inertial sensor further enhancing the participation of trailer brakes during a brake event. With a push of a button you can quickly change the Boost setting to optimise your unit to cope with your towing situation, driving preference as well as the condition of your trailer brakes. The 2 digit LED readout will continuously keep you informed by depicting the electrical connection status, amount of voltage delivery to the trailer brakes as well as self diagnosing features providing you with optimal visibility.
“BOOST” FEATURE ALLOWS FOR CUSTOMISED BRAKING
The Guardian® IQ is convenient in every situation. It ensures speedy, problem-free installations by providing “Plug & Tow” port for 2-plug adapters, pre assembled wiring harnesses as well as an innovative snap-in dash mounting kit. The quick release disconnect feature allows you to remove and store the unit when not in use. Boasting a built in self levelling mechanism the Guardian® IQ guarantees that no level adjustment is necessary, giving you more time on the road. All Hayman Reese brake controllers are covered by a 3 year warranty.
The dial and LED indicator can fit and be mounted in a spare switch panel rather than through the main dashboard or centre consol. The brake controller is stored out of sight behind the vehicle’s dashboard – with only the control dials showing on the dash.
The Output Control Dial has two functions. It lets you set the minimum braking force of the trailer (otherwise known as the ‘Boost’ – a unique feature) and provides an over-ride function for additional braking power on the trailer when required. The over-ride force can be set by the user and is activated by pressing and holding the Output ControlDial.
The “Boost” feature gives users the ability to apply more or less braking power when necessary. By adjusting the Boost on the Output Control Dial, users can choose the minimum amount of braking force to apply when the brake pedal is first pressed. For heavier caravans and trailers more Boost can be used for greater braking control. This feature is unique to the CompactIQ™ as a remote mounted brake control unit.
The LED indicator shows the various states of the braking system through the use of different colours. It also confirms successful installation. Green indicates the system is connected and operating correctly. Red indicates that the system is active and applying the trailer’s brakes. A flashing red light means there is a connection fault.
Complete with Sync-Control the driver can control the rate of brake application from soft to aggressive my simply moving this control forward or backward. Trailer brakes may also be manually applied by squeezing the Brake Controller’s manual control, located on the front of the unit. This also activates the trailer and tow vehicle’s stop lights when brakes are applied. A perfect way to help trim trailer sway.
