Phillips Industries has expanded the availability of its Permalogic selector system to cover more applications. The system can now be included in the Phillips i-Box housing and as a component of the Sta-Dry S7 swivel electrical socket used in tractor-trailer combinations with tight maneuvering environments.
The Permalogic selector system was developed for refrigerated freight carriers with heavy cycle liftgates. The i-Box housing has two thirds more room than traditional noseboxes with a lower profile specifically for reefer applications, making the combination ideal.
According to Phillips, the selector system intelligently selects between the tractor (via dual pole) or the trailer’s reefer unit as a source of power to charge the liftgate batteries to capacity ensuring a day’s deliveries are made on time with no downtime due to lack of power. The system will automatically shut off if it senses a problem with the reefer’s electrical system and will not cause any out of balance issues with either the reefer unit or the tractor.
