The CURT Spectrum trailer brake controller gives you powerful, precise braking operation in an extremely simple and subtle design inside your vehicle. It features a ten tri-color LED rotary knob interface and a separate main module with an advanced accelerometer. This allows for an OE look and feel to be maintained inside the cab of your vehicle. The separated design of the Spectrum brake control allows the main module to be mounted behind the dash of the vehicle, completely out of sight. Meanwhile, the compact, unobtrusive interface can be fully integrated keeping the dash of your vehicle clean, professional and uncluttered.

The Spectrum electric brake controller is a fully compatible unit, able to operate up to eight trailer brakes at a time. It can be used on vehicles with ABS brakes and cruise control, and it works with low-voltage and PWM systems.

Like every CURT trailer brake controller, the Spectrum installs in ten minutes or less, using a quick plug harness. These wiring harnesses are vehicle-specific and plug into any CURT brake control for a custom-fit installation in the vehicle. The Spectrum also has automatic leveling and calibration features to simplify the setup process.
