I've never heard of electric disk brakes on small trailers. Don't know how you could modulate the braking force of calipers without an expensive changeout to electric over hydraulic brakes. Best bet would to be check with Dexter (axle manufacturer) and see if they offer that option. Many brake controllers will work with electric over hydraulic brakes, but in my opinion it's a lot of overkill.
