About AL-KO ESC
The AL-KO ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is a sway and
swerve stability control system for caravans fitted with AL-KO
electric brakes. The ESC gives an assurance to drivers that, even in
the most difficult of driving scenarios, the stability of their caravan
is being monitored by the ESC, providing an unparalleled level of
safety during the journey. Manoeuvring past heavy goods vehicles,
coping with excessive side winds and dealing with road hazards can
be done with the ultimate confidence that any potentially dangerous condition will be controlled smoothly and
effectively by the ESC.
The ESC is only approved for use on trailers and caravans fitted with
AL-KO electric brakes, axles and suspensions.
How it works
AL-KO ESC is an ingenious electronic braking system that works in a similar way to an ESC system in some cars.
The AL-KO ESC constantly senses the lateral (side to side) movement of the caravan while towing. When a critical
sway or emergency swerve is detected, the ESC partially applies the caravan brakes. Braking of the caravan only
has the effect of pulling the caravan into line behind the tow vehicle and prevents further
swaying of the caravan. This allows the driver to remain in control of the vehicle.
