The Reverse-A-Matic™ RM-60

The Reverse-A-Matic™ RM-60 trailer direction sensing system is a stand alone device that is independent from the cab. It takes the features from the Reverse-A-Matic™ RM-50 and expands on them.

The RM-60 provides the additional functions required for SPIF trailers with 5 or 6 axles, including the enhanced braking requirements, 60km/h steer-lock, and limitations of the 4-way lift functionality.

Features

  • Activates the trailer reverse lights/alarm system.
  • Lifts the trailer’s self-steering axle(s) while reversing.
  • Provides a second lift axle control wire with 4-way lift functionality
  • Steer-lock activation at 60km/h
  • ABS Bulb Check feature
  • Easy integration with a low pressure warning system

How it works

Reverse Lift

The reverse lift feature uses the Wheel Monitor Reverse Sensor to determine the trailers direction. When the trailer has reversed approximately 8 inches, the reverse lift feature activates. The Reverse lift feature remains active until the trailer moves forward 100 feet without stopping.

Reverse Alarm

Similar to the reverse lift feature, the reverse alarm feature activates when the trailer has reversed approximately 8 inches. The reverse alarm feature remains active until the trailer stops for 5 seconds or begins to travel forward.

4-way Lift Feature

The 4-way lift feature can be activated by the driver at anytime, when traveling under 60km/h. The feature is activated by turning the 4-way flashers ON and OFF in the correct sequence. The 4-way lift feature will deactivate if the 4-way flashers are turned OFF or the trailer travels above 60km/h.

Steering Lock Control

The steering lock control feature can be used to lock the self-steering for straight operation. The feature activates the lock when the trailer is in reverse or traveling over 60km/h. The lock will deactivate below 60km/h and traveling forward.

The speed based lock is required by SPIF on trailers with lift axles behind the primary group.

ABS Bulb Check

The ABS bulb check feature is designed to help meet the enhanced braking requirements SPIF has on 5 and 6 axle trailers. The feature powers the light 3 times when the RM-60 first receives power. The operator can verify that the ABS warning light is functional before beginning to travel.
