After searching the market for the best performer, Pacbrake is proud to introduce an Automatic locking module for automatic vehicles equipped with exhaust brakes. ATS Commander and ATS Co-Pilot provide a significant improvement to retarding power and eliminates the need for downshifting.
These are programmed to put the converter in lock-up during exhaust brake retarding; thereby, maximizing the effects of the retarding horsepower and improving performance. Its internal computer is programmed to disengage lock-up under many conditions that often inhibit the performance of an exhaust brake.
Simple push button control allows the driver to select the speed at which the converter clutch will engage and disengage. With the power off, the Commander or Co-Pilot reverts to factory control. Minimum speed for lockup is approximately 18 MPH. This means that forgetting to unlock the converter clutch when coming to a stop will not kill the engine.
We recommend the convenient ATS Commander
