Designed and developed in Australia, WiTi replaces the cables and plugs connecting a tow vehicle and trailer with an advanced wireless interface.
WiTi consists of a primary unit in the tow vehicle and a secondary unit in the camper trailer or caravan.
Described by the industry as the greatest advancement in towing technology for the last twenty years, WiTi continues to innovate with the announcement of the WiTi integrated Proportional Brake Controller with Hill Descent Control. A global first for electric brake enabled trailers and caravans.
WiTi transmits all lighting and braking signals wirelessly. Although wireless, WiTi is not dependant upon the Internet and communication is point to point between the vehicle unit and trailer unit.
No more cables to damage or rip out, no more corroded terminals and no more loose connections.
WiTi also includes a revolutionary anti-theft system and is the only anti-theft system designed specifically for caravans and trailers fitted with electric brakes.
The WiTi Anti-Theft device detects movement via a highly sensitive gyroscope. If a caravan / trailer is hitched or moved slightly whilst the anti-theft is active then WiTi immediately applies the brakes, flashes all the lights and sounds an alarm.
The caravan or camper trailer is completely immobilised and will be impossible to tow.
WiTi Anti-Theft is included with the Wireless Interface or as a standalone product.
Integrated Brake Controller with Hill Descent Control
WiTi now offers an integrated brake controller with ground breaking Hill Descent Control. The WiTi Brake Controller connects to the Vehicle Unit with a dash mounted dial for gain adjustment and manual override.
It is a fully proportional brake controller which applies brakes on the caravan or trailer in proportion to the rate of deceleration of the tow vehicle. The WiTi Brake Controller offers two significant safety innovations, Hill Descent Control and Brake Smoothing.
Hill Descent Control improves safety and control when descending steep hills. All proportional brake controllers use G-force to determine the braking force applied to the brakes.
The firmer the braking the more g-force is generated and braking is applied on the caravan or trailer proportionally. However, when descending steep hills the driver of the tow vehicle typically feathers the brakes to maintain speed – this generates no g-force as there is no deceleration.
As a result there is no braking applied to the caravan or trailer and the tow vehicle is being pushed down the hill. WiTi Hill Descent Control eliminates this by measuring the angle of descentand applying the brakes in proportion to the gain setting on the dash mounted dial.
The steeper the descent the more braking is applied resulting in a safer more controlled descent.
No other brake controller offers Hill Descent Control – another global innovation for WiTi.
Brake Smoothing eliminates the sharp and annoying jerking that may occur with other brake controllers.
With WiTi the output to the electric brakes on the caravan or trailer is measured and smoothed electronically to provide a more comfortable and safer towing experience and eliminating harsh jerking under firm braking.
