Hydrastar Brake Actuator - Electric-Hydraulic Brake Actuator - HS481-8067 Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff @etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Hydrastar Plug and Play Disc Brake electric over hydraulic actuator system for factory brake controllers. Now, this Hydrastar Plug 'N' Play System makes installing your hydraulic brake system a snap. The plug and play is designed for simple, easy installation with no hard wiring that's required. And the system is designed to work with your factory brake controller.

The system will include everything laid out here on the table. It includes this Hydrastar actuator. Again, plug and play. The breakaway battery kit and the breakaway cable, which are all plug and play also. The plug and play seven-way harness and the control adaptor module here, which is also plug and play.

Does come with a nice instruction manual to describe how everything hooks up and how it operates.Now, this electric over hydraulic brake actuator is designed to activate your trailer's hydraulic brakes. When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, the factory brake controller will send a signal from the tow vehicle to this actuator. When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, this offers improved functionality, when compared with surge brake couplers gives you a faster response time. In other words, your trailer brakes are triggered when you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, as opposed to when the trailer pushes against the hitch ball. There's no need to manually lock out your brakes when you back up.

The trailer brakes can be intentionally activated when you reverse as a manual override or the manual override that's on your brake controller can be activated so that you can engage the trailer brakes without having to apply your vehicle brakes. Now on this actuator, a missing has a vent right here.This vented end plate will release pressure, moisture, and heat in order to protect the internal components of the actuator. This allows the x-ray to be mounted in a place where most actuators would overheat. So as a result, this actuator's great for gooseneck fifth wheel trailers for finding space on your tongue can be nearly impossible as does using electronic proportional pressure valve ensures that the braking is smooth and effective, right at the top here has this built-in bleeder screw, which will let you easily flush air out of your brake lines and right down here at the bottoms where your brake line will attach. This is a hydraulic brake line port three 16 size.

it says made of a durable extruded aluminum provide superior corrosion resistance. Does use Marine grade gaskets and stainless steel hardware makes it ideal for Marine use.Now over here is the control adapter module. This is included to give you a compatibility with your four Dodger GM factory brake controller, this module, while they actuator to work with your factory brake controller and the same way, it's an easy plug and play installation. No hard wiring is required. This whole system is DLT, Department of Transportation compliant. This unit will install on your trailer frame, connects to your trailer's wiring. And the hydraulic brake lines. Again, this is designed for single tandem or triple axle trailers, just disk brakes, maximum output pressure on this actuator is 1600 PSI that's for it's designed for disk brakes.Power is 12 volts DC. The last thing we to do is just give you some dimensions on the actuator. Let you know how big it is, but if we measured the length of it. So, we're going to measure including these mounting tabs right here on the bottom. So if we go from one end all the way to the other end, you can see it's going to be right at eleven and three-quarter inches long. The height bottom to the very top where the cap is, the tallest point is seven and three eights inches tall, and the width, the widest point is going to be right at three inches. That should do it for the review on this Hydrastar Plug and Play Disc Brake electric over hydraulic actuator system for the factory brake controllers..
