10-inch Electric Brake Magnets suit Dexter Brakes and Al-ko Brakes

10-inch Electric brake magnets are suited to all-electric brake systems except for older round magnet brake systems.

Note: Magnets are supplied in a plastic bag.

How to check magnet wear

  • Check the four small holes on top of the magnet.
  • These holes are warning indicators that display magnet wear.
  • Extreme magnets wear if there are no holes or fewer than four holes.
  • When the face of the magnet hole has worn, then it is time to replace the magnet.

Key Features

  • Wear holes are at 3 pm, 6 pm, 9 pm and 12.
  • Magnets draw approximately 3.2 amps each
  • Wires can be connected either positive or negative.

Once worn, copper begins to become exposed. Subsequently, an open electric circuit will render the brakes inoperable.

TIP:

  • Bed new magnets into position to achieve 100% braking efficiency.
  • The magnet face is a shiny finish.
  • This finish needs to be scuffed up during the initial stages of breaking before your magnets become 100% effective.

Electric OffRoad Magnet Kit

10-inch A-ko® OffRoad electric brake magnet (genuine) to suit all AL-KO and some Dexter backing plates.

The lifespan for offroad magnets greatly exceeds the life cycle of standard offroad magnets.

The latest Al-ko IQ7 brake actuator uses an offroad magnet to increase the reliability within the brake actuation system.

Why do offroad magnets last longer?

  • The steel magnet arm causes the steel magnet on a standard highway magnet to rattle causing wear.
  • The plastic insert on the Al-ko off-road magnet prevents the same wear under the same conditions.

Difference between Highway and Offroad Magnets

  • Electric Highway brake kit uses a magnet retaining clip to hold the magnet into position on the magnet arm.
  • Off-Road Electric brake magnet uses a RUBBER BAND to hold the magnet into position on the magnet arm.

The rubber band breaks on first use and relies on the return spring to hold the magnet.

The Left side and right side magnets are not interchangeable.

  • The left-hand side is the passenger’s side
  • The right-hand side is the driver's side

The purpose of the rubber band is to hold the magnet into position to allow drum installation onto the axle profile, then tighten.

If the magnet needs replacing or upgrading from a standard magnet, then it may be wise to replace the whole backing plate.
