General operating approval (ABE) and ECE - product certification (Homologation). Trailer hitches already approved according to ECE 55 or previously 94/20/E have already been tested according to European standards. They comply with CE directives, are tested and approved for the French market. It is not necessary to have the towbar approved by an expert or inspector after installation or to have it registered on the vehicle papers.

Transportsysteme24 GmbH is the authorized official partner of the Oris / ACPS brand. What is the towing weight? The towing weight defines the maximum total weight allowed, with which a vehicle equipped with a suitable towbar can tow a trailer. Depending on the type and version of the vehicle (engine power), this can vary. You can find the maximum authorized trailer load for your vehicle on your registration certificate.

Where can I find this entry in the vehicle documents? Depending on the age of the vehicle, you will find the value on the vehicle registration certificate.

Take the value from zone F. 3 and subtract it from the value of zone F. In order to calculate the maximum authorized towing weight for the vehicle. In exceptional cases, this value can be increased by calculation. Please follow the instructions on the vehicle registration certificate - especially for slope information.

For the towbars we offer, you will find the maximum authorized trailer load of the trailer hitch in the technical data of the product view. Important: If the maximum towing weight value of the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not identical, the lower value always applies. Example: If a maximum authorized trailer load of 1,500 kg is indicated in the vehicle document, but the associated trailer hitch has a tested trailer load of 1800 kg, only 1500 kg can still be towed.

Under certain conditions, an increase in trailer load may be requested for the vehicle. This requires approval from the respective vehicle manufacturer such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes...

The vehicle must then be presented to an expert. With the test certificate you receive from them, you can have the change recorded in your vehicle documents at the registration office. The authorized trailer load in kilograms can be determined as follows: Formula for calculating value D: (Total weight Towing weight 9.81) / (Total weight + Towing capacity) Formula for calculating the towing weight: (value D total weight) / (total weight 9.81 - value D) Formula for calculating the total weight: (value D trailer load) / (trailer load 9.81 - value D) Formula for calculating static weight according to the 4 % rule: Towing weight 0.04 GF = (authorized total weight of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration D = (value D in kN) see nameplate/mounting instructions of the towbar. What is a bumper cut-out? When cutting out the bumper, a piece of the bumper is cut out on the rear part of the vehicle.

It is important to note that there are bumper cut-outs in the visible and non-visible area. This depends individually on the design of the bumper. Trailer hitch manufacturers always strive to avoid bumper cut-outs. If this is not possible, the cut-out is limited to the bare minimum. If the bumper needs to be modified, you can always find it in the respective installation instructions of the item.

If a cut-out is necessary, you will also find the dimensions or a template defining the desired cut-out size. Tip: For cutting out, use a jigsaw with a fine saw blade, as it allows you to work with plastic very easily and especially with precision. To make the cutting edges smooth again, you can carefully heat them with a lighter.

Professionals can also do this with a Bunsen burner or a "Blue-Fire". But keep enough distance to be able to shape perfectly. The maximum weight that can be applied vertically from above on the trailer hitch ball. The authorized vertical load of the vehicle can be found in the vehicle manual under the "trailer use" section. The maximum static weight of each towbar device is indicated on the approval plate and in the installation instructions. Tip: If you want to mount a rear bike carrier with an electric bike on your towbar, you must absolutely pay attention to a high static weight. Important: What if the vertical load values between the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not identical? Example: If the manufacturer has allowed a maximum vertical load of 75 kg for the vehicle and the trailer hitch has an approved vertical load of 60 kg, the value of the trailer hitch is decisive.

In this example, it would be 60 kg. In this case, the lowest value always applies. This value of a trailer hitch is expressed in Kilo-Newton and serves as the basis for calculating the permissible trailer load. The value D is determined and verified once and remains unchanged.

Only the value D and the authorized vertical load are indicated on the trailer hitch approval plate. The indication of value D allows the determination of the bandwidth during a modification acceptance according to § 19 (3) StVZO (German road traffic regulations). For example, it is possible to modify the authorized total weight by varying the trailer load accordingly, without a new inspection. The value D required according to directive 94/20/EC can be determined as follows: GF = (authorized total weight of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration GA = (authorized trailer load of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration. What is a folding socket support?

The socket is mounted on a support plate with a hinge and can be folded under the bumper. This is not mandatory, but simply an improvement in appearance. Many removable and swiveling towbars are equipped with retractable sockets. We even have some rigid towbars with this feature in our range. Info: The construction of a towbar device with a folding socket support depends on the presence of sufficient space between the towbar cross tube and the rear part of the vehicle. Is a CT registration necessary? Almost all towbars in our range have an approval plate and are therefore checked according to the "94/20" directive. Such a towbar can be used on public roads without further expertise. According to article 27, paragraph 1 of the StVZO (German road traffic regulations), a towbar retrofitted with an approval plate should only be added during the "next vehicle paperwork consultation" with the registration service.

However, in accordance with clause 1a, any possible modification of the authorized trailer load resulting from the installation of the towbar device must be reported immediately. After installing a towbar requiring individual inspection at a technical inspection, we provide a certificate, with which you must undergo an individual inspection after installation.

You will receive a document with which you must immediately register the change on your vehicle papers with the registration office. National mark (M, F, N). The same conditions as for the individual technical inspection procedure apply here. The only difference is that these towbars have a permanently assigned approval certification.

Info: A towbar device tested according to EC94/20 fulfills the following criteria: - the towbar has a valid approved plate with all necessary data - the distance between the towball and the bumper and the ground complies with the regulations. The construction has passed the endurance test with 2 million load changes. All prescribed fixing points by the vehicle manufacturer have been respected. Important: Installation instructions must be included with the vehicle papers and must be in the vehicle! What is the installation time?

The installation time of a towbar is indicated by the towbar manufacturer itself. This time is limited exclusively to the installation of the product.

This time does not include, for example, the installation or fitting of the bumper. Tips To avoid calculation errors, calculate the specified indicative values with a factor of two.. Experience shows that this comes closest to the actual installation time.

What is a socket support plate? The socket, whether 7 or 13-pin, is always attached to the socket support plate with 3 screws.

Some towbars even have a folding function. What is an approval plate? Each towbar device must be equipped with an approval plate in order not to invalidate the vehicle's circulation authorization. An approval plate must contain the following information: - Diameter of the towball - Approval number - Series or manufacturing data - Static weight kg - Value D in kN - Type Info: Feel free to ask us for the corresponding document.

Not compatible with bike carriers. Deactivation of the rear fog light is not possible. In Germany, the flashing monitoring unit is mandatory for trailers.

If you want to order an electrical kit with a monitoring unit, please contact us before purchasing. Deactivation of rear radar sensors. More permanently integrated, pin 9.

Connection to the trailer socket. The socket allows you to connect to the trailer plug and ensures electrical connection between the car and the trailer. What does 7 pins mean? A simple connection that is sufficient to meet legal requirements.

Like all 7-pin harnesses, special functions such as permanent power supply or reverse lights (on the trailer) are not possible. What does 13 pins mean? This is a waterproof connector with simple handling. Meanwhile, this variant has become the standard for original equipment. Signaling functions and permanent power supply or reverse lights can be transmitted without any problems. Additional free pins are also available and offer useful options, especially in the camping field. What is an original connector?

Connections between the vehicle and the electrical kit are made using existing connectors, which eliminates any wiring errors. What is a diagnostic tool? Modern electrical kits are equipped with trailer control modules capable of exchanging data with the vehicle's control units. Some functions, such as deactivation of rear sensors, trailer stabilization, and deactivation of rear fog lights, only work when both calculators have learned to communicate with each other.

Therefore, a corresponding coding on the vehicle using a diagnostic tester is necessary. The current driving situation of the car is monitored by sensors installed on the vehicle. Once the trailer plug is connected, the vehicle recognizes the "trailer" operating mode and monitors all dynamic movements of the vehicle. If the trailer ends up in a critical state, the vehicle's onboard computer helps the driver regain control of the situation.

Info: - TSP, Trailer-Stability-Program - TSM, Trailer-Sway-Mitigation - TSA, Trailer-Stability-Assist Technical note: Trailer stabilization only works if an electrical kit assists it. For this purpose, the electrical kit must be registered in the vehicle's data bus system through activation. Vehicles that do not have TSP as standard cannot be equipped with this function using an electrical kit compatible with TSP. What is a universal harness?

A universal electrical kit is suitable for different brands and types of vehicles, but is not specific to any particular model. Characteristic properties: - Connection is made to the feeding wires. Each wire's functions must be identified. Wiring must be shortened or lengthened if necessary. Installation instructions do not refer to specific vehicle characteristics. Tip: Whenever possible, always buy a vehicle-specific electrical kit, as installation errors are almost excluded. What is a specific harness? A specific electrical harness has been specially developed for a particular vehicle.

Before marketing a specific electrical kit, a test installation is carried out on the vehicle in question to ensure proper operation. Typical properties: - pre-designed connectors - exact cable lengths - installation instructions describe in text or pictograms all necessary work steps for correct installation.

Info: There are vehicle-specific electrical kits that also fit several vehicle models, as vehicles are often built on the same platform regardless of the manufacturer! Tip: Specific electrical kits save installation time and therefore money. What does a pre-assembled socket mean? One end of the cable harness is already connected to the socket. This facilitates installation and saves valuable installation time. What is a socket insert with screw terminals? The socket insert has connection points for cable attachment, establishing contact through a screw terminal.

What is a socket insert with crimp terminals? In the case of a crimped socket, the wires are already installed in the contact holder. This results in a gas-tight compression of the cable with the contact plug, ensuring an optimal contact connection.

What is deactivation of rear fog lights? When deactivating the fog light system, the rear fog lights of the towing vehicle are turned off. It does not matter if the trailer has its own fog light system Note: When using a rear bike carrier with its own lighting units, it is mandatory that the rear fog light of the car is deactivated (in Germany). CAN data bus technology (also known as Controller-Area-Network) is the technical term for a special type of data transmission in a vehicle.

It manages the electronic network of a modern automobile and connects the majority of control devices. Info: A modern car contains up to 70 control units for exchanging data between them, which then enable the most suitable functions. It is a bulb failure check that indicates to the driver, on the dashboard, through a visual symbol, a defective lighting such as turn signals, brake lights, etc. What is a Flasher Relay or Turn Signal Relay?

Flasher relays are also called turn signal relays and have the function of transmitting the flashing impulse to the vehicle's turn signals or, if applicable, to the trailer. In case of malfunction, the flashing frequency changes. What is a trailer computer? The trailer computer partially or fully regulates the trailer lighting.

The impulse usually comes from the vehicle's rear lights, which the control unit transmits to the trailer. What is a trailer detection?

Trailer detection functions to indicate to the towing vehicle whether a trailer or a bike carrier is attached. This is often done through a microswitch integrated into the power socket. What is a C2 indicator? The C2 indicator is an additional green indicator. It should be placed on the dashboard, in the driver's field of view.

Info: On certain types of vehicles, a C2 indicator is already equipped to be controlled by the flasher relay. Practical: In trailer mode, the C2 indicator flashes at the same time as the standard turn signal indicator. Even without a trailer, it can flash up to three times, but it must then go out! What is a wiring diagram? In the wiring diagram of a 7 or 13-pin socket, it is defined which cable occupies which contact of the socket.

Cable identification is done by colors. The socket contacts are identified by numbers and letters. A microswitch is a small electrical switch integrated into the electrical kit's power socket. It can be used for different functions such as deactivation of EPH, trailer detection, etc. What is a central connector?

Some vehicles are already ready to receive a "factory electrical kit". In such cases, there is one or more central connectors, which are ready to serve as connection points for the trailer cable set. What is a permanent power supply?

The additional permanent power supply is a continuous 12Volt voltage that ensures a permanent current to contact "no. 9" and is only possible for 13-pin trailer sockets according to 11446 DIN/ISO. What is a charging cable? A battery in the trailer can be charged with a charging cable while driving. This works via contact "no.

10", a 13-pin socket according to DIN/ISO 11446. As soon as the contact is cut, the power supply is interrupted by a cut-off relay. More offers for this type of towbar.
