The newest member of Phillips' Permalogic family of power control products is the Permalogic Reefer. An all-weather, all-electronic controller, the Permalogic Reefer is designed to manage power to trailer dome lamps in reefer trailers.

The idea behind it is simple: to allow operation of the trailer dome lamps even if the trailer is not connected to the tractor, and also protect the operation of the refrigeration unit. If the refrigeration unit battery falls below 12.2 volts, the Permalogic Reefer control will shut off power to the interior lamps to save available power for the refrigeration unit. To further save battery power, the system will also automatically turn off interior dome lamps after 30 minutes of continuous use.

Like all Permalogic products, Permalogic Reefer automatically switches off the interior dome lamps when the brakes are applied, enhancing vehicle safety by making maximum power available for the brake ABS function.
