Phillips Industries said its new QCP (Quick Connect Plug) assembly is the “longest-lasting, most trouble-free cable” it has ever designed — and will save users hundreds of dollars per vehicle over the course of a year.
The QCP allows simply unscrewing the set screw, unplugging the Quick-Connect cartridge, plugging in a new one and replacing the set screw. Both ends contain the same easy-to-change cartridge with solid brass pins connecting into a sealed harness.
Phillips Industries also announced it is rolling out nationwide distribution of its Phillips LVD, a low voltage disconnect device. Based on patented technology developed by Intra Technologies, the LVD continually monitors battery voltage, shedding non-critical loads if power drops to the point where the next ignition start-up is in jeopardy. The LVD reconnects non-essential loads after a start or when the voltage returns to a safe level.
Phillips also said it is embarking on a “wiring connection education” initiative aimed at providing distributors and fleet operators with a wide variety of tools that “will help them get better connected.” www.phillipsind.com.
