Phillips Industries has introduced its Permalogic Smart-Charge trailer power management system for liftgate and auxiliary battery banks. According to the company, the new system recognizes and automatically manages the best power source(s) to charge your batteries from all available sources collectively.
Phillips said its Permalogic Smart-Charge can pull from the following sources individually or collectively: the dual/single pole liftgate charging system, the tractor batteries, the reefer, and even from a fourth source such as solar power. The system has built-in low voltage detection to avoid draining power sources, and an LED indicator to display which power input source is being utilized, the company added.
“Some trailer applications tax the batteries more heavily than others and cannot keep up with existing charging methods that rely on a single source” said Adam Bean, new product development manager at Phillips. “This system is the ultimate solution which accommodates for all charging methods.”
