WHAT IS ESC?
AL-KO Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is a world first breakthrough in caravan towing safety designed primarily to give you the best possible response in an emergency avoidance manoeuvre such as having to swerve suddenly to avoid a car or animal on the road ahead.
Not only does it reduce sway, unlike anything else AL-KO ESC is a serious technology designed to keep you safe in critical towing situations. AL-KO ESC also gives you the confidence in general towing conditions that you have unparalleled levels of safety during your journey with assured manoeuvrability. In off road conditions such as corrugated gravel roads, AL-KO ESC continues to operate effectively, keeping you safe.
This is all backed up by the latest industry technology from AL-KO, the world leaders in caravan axles, brakes and components manufacture, and a national support network of over 200 trained and certified Installers.
As the inventor and innovator of ESC technology for caravans, AL-KO ESC is designed and made in Australia for our unique conditions and is the #1 choice of major Australian caravan manufacturers, who have rapidly adopted this leading edge technology.
It may sound dramatic, but it’s no understatement to say that AL-KO ESC could save your life – even if it’s only called upon once in your ownership of a caravan. By fitting AL-KO ESC you can have the peace of mind that you have done everything that you can possibly do to keep yourself and your passengers safe in an emergency.
HOW DOES ESC WORK?
The AL-KO ESC system is engineered to operate when it identifies critical driving situations – such as a build-up of two small swings, or one large, sudden lateral movement.
In an emergency avoidance manoeuvre such as suddenly swerving to avoid a car or animal on the road ahead, you need total control as quickly as possible. In this situation, AL-KO ESC brakes all wheels on the caravan simultaneously as soon as a dangerous sideways movement is detected by the lateral acceleration sensors inside the AL-KO ESC unit.
The caravan brakes are held on to wipe off speed and stopping distance in the shortest possible time to allow the driver to maintain control. This maintains the line and stability of the car and caravan, allowing you to perform and avoidance manoeuvre. Your car and caravan operate as one, you avoid jack-knifing and you’re back on your side of the road with a potential disaster behind you.
In general towing conditions, the AL-KO ESC system is engineered to operate when it identifies a critical driving situation where you could lose control – such as a build-up of two small swings, or one large, sudden lateral movement.
The lateral acceleration sensors inside the AL-KO ESC unit monitor for these repeated side movements or large swings. AL-KO ESC continuously evaluates the data and when critical lateral movements are recognised, ESC activates and applies the electric brakes immediately to bring the vehicle back into line in a smooth and controlled manner.
In an emergency you need total control as quickly as possible. Only AL-KO ESC makes sure you’ve got it.
