SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA – Phillips Industries is rolling out nationwide distribution of its innovative Phillips LVD, a low voltage disconnect device that assures there is always enough power for the next start. Based on patented technology developed by Intra Technologies, the Phillips LVD continually monitors battery voltage, shedding non-critical load if power drops to the point where the next start is in jeopardy. The Phillips LVD reconnects the non-essential load after a start or when the voltage returns to a safe level.
For less than the average cost of a jumpstart, the Phillips LVD helps fleet operators avoid delay and inconvenience and prolongs battery life while also helping reduce wear and tear on other electrical system components. The bottom line result is lower operating costs and prolonged life of the fleet. Just ask companies like Ryder Transportation, JB Hunt and Volvo who have purchased the LVD this year.
The Phillips LVD is approximately 3×5 inches in size, weighs 20 ounces, about the size of a deck of cards, and can be installed on any type of vehicle, from over-the-road Class 8 trucks to pickup trucks, police cars, and ambulances. The Phillips LVD requires less than an hour to install and in some cases less than thirty minutes on most equipment. Harness kits are available for selected truck models, making it “plug and roll” in many situations. The LVD carries a money-back guarantee from Phillips Industries.
