What is AL-KO iQ7?
The AL-KO iQ7 is the latest in power assisted braking, designed to significantly improve stopping performance and safety for trailers with hydraulic brakes – especially large boat trailers.
It allows immediate brake application the instant it is required. And iQ7 includes in-built breakaway technology to stop your trailer if it becomes detached from the tow vehicle. No other parts are required.
In addition AL-KO iQ7 enables you to meet the legal requirement that all trailers with a loaded weight exceeding two tonnes (2.5 tonnes in New Zealand) must incorporate independent brake application.
Until recently the most popular solution was to fit a vacuum or compressed air system to the tow vehicle, but not only is this very expensive it often also means that the warranty of the tow vehicle is voided.
Fitting the AL-KO iQ7 system allows the legal use of hydraulic disc brakes for towed vehicles and trailers over 2 tonne in Australia and 2.5 tonne in New Zealand, and also provides superior stopping performance.
The bottom line is you’ll enjoy superior safety and peace of mind while knowing AL-KO iQ7 has been designed and manufactured in Australia for Australia and New Zealand conditions, backed by AL-KO’s global expertise in towing safety.
There are two iQ7 models available. iQ7 qne iQ7 XTREME
iQ7 can be used with your existing approved motion sensing brake controller fo rconvenience and cost savings while iQ7 XTREME has additional features for ultimate safety and performance (XTREME controller, mouse and pedal).
