Using remote control the compact auxiliary drive unit allows you to effortlessly manoeuvre your caravan and rotate it on the spot, even on unmade surfaces. Depending on the weight of the vehicle you can even manoeuvre it up slopes of up 30 %! The iMC unit is integrated into the chassis directly next to the wheels so that you still have maximum ground clearance.
iDC – intelligent Drive Control
The Innovative Anti-Snaking System for Caravans
Sensors for Enhanced Safety
The iDC system's sensors continually measure the lateral acceleration directly at the trailer's axles.
The intelligent iDC system immediately detects any risk of snaking and gently applies the trailer's brakes automatically.
Course Correction in a Matter of Seconds
The gentle braking brings the trailer back on course of its own accord within a matter of seconds.
In the event of a power failure during a control action (e. g. as a result of a loss of voltage or a broken wire), the BPW iDC automatically returns to its start position. The service brake is released and remains fully functional. Without this safety function the brakes remain active. Possible consequences could be overheating of the wheel brake and bearings.
Brake Heat Function
The iDC system's sensors immediately detect any risk of snaking and the iDC system automatically applies the trailer's brakes. Should the sideward snaking not stop within 10 seconds, the system becomes inactive for 100 seconds to avoid brake overheating.
The iDC is:
Suitable for single-axle and tandem-axle caravans
Can be retrofitted on all BPW chassis with ZAF-2 overrun hitch
Suitable for torsion bar, rubber extension, trailing and semi-trailing arm axles
Suitable for caravans up to 2,800 kg maximum laden weight
