Two New, Innovative Brake Controls to Be Shown at SEMA

In-Dash for OE Look and Feel; OLED Screen for High-Quality Readouts

Eau Claire, WI -- October 27, 2017 -- CURT, the leading manufacturer of USA-made hitches and a complete line of towing products, will be showcasing two new, innovative brake controls at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas (booth #34017). The Spectrum™ is an in-dash unit for an unprecedented OE look and feel, and the Assurr™ features a high-quality OLED display screen.

The new Spectrum™ brake control #51170 is comprised of a dynamic user interface and a separate main module. The interface is a simple rotary knob with an integrated push-button and ten tri-color LEDs. It mounts on the dash of the vehicle for a clean, unobtrusive, OE look. This single knob allows the driver to control and monitor all trailer brake activity. No other controls or displays are needed. The separate main module of the Spectrum™ mounts behind the dash, out of sight.

The new Assure™ brake control #51160 features a professional-grade interface and has a unique manual override feature. It has a 128 x 64 dot matrix OLED display screen that shows trailer brake activity in a full message readout for enhanced usability. The display can also be flipped up at multiple angles for the best possible view. The manual override of the Assure™ brake control allows power to be applied any time and in any amount, giving the driver more control on the road.

Both the Spectrum™ and Assure™ operate with a triple-axis accelerometer, providing highly responsive, smooth stops on any grade. They also install easily with any of our vehicle-specific quick plug harnesses.

Looks for these new products and more at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The CURT Group booth number is #34017.
