Phillips expands Permalogic availability

Sept. 20, 2013

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.
