Take charge of your toy
When you're a serious truck fanatic, you're not satisfied until you've got every accessory under the sun mounted in, on, or underneath your ride. And while having lots of ways to play with your toy is nice, it can be a hassle to keep track of all the different controllers for your 12-volt extras. Alpine's KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller saves the day by allowing you to integrate command of up to 8 different accessories through the touchscreen display of your compatible Alpine Restyle car stereo.
Important note: The KAC-001 cannot be used unless it's also installed with the iDatalink Maestro interface module.
The Alpine KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller lets you control up to eight different 12-volt accessories through your compatible Alpine stereo's touchscreen; here are just a few examples.
Works with many handy add-ons
Whether your accessories are for work, play, or a bit of both, the KAC-001 makes it easy to operate them from the driver's seat. This convenient controller offers fingertip command of myriad devices, including (but not limited to):
- Motorized tonneau (bed) covers
- Powered side steps
- Air suspensions
- Powered truck toolbox locks
- LED lighting
- Interior lights
Alpine even offers selectable on/off, continuous, or pulsed outputs for each device to give you optimum control and compatibility for your truck's extras. You can operate your devices safely and reduce the likelihood of potentially dangerous over- or under-powering.
Once you've connected the KAC-001 between your devices and your Alpine stereo, you'll be able to pull up an accessory control screen through the stereo's menu display. You can then use easy-to-identify and customizable icons for each input, and label them as you see fit. You'll be showing off your truck's newest attractions in no time. Metal construction ensures the KAC-001 will withstand long-term use.
