Phillips Industries Improves Premium 3-IN-1 and 4-IN-1 Electrical and Air Combination Assemblies
Santa Fe Springs, CA (August 27, 2019) Premium 3-IN-1 and 4-IN-1 electrical and air combination assemblies with QCP™ trailer side connections from Phillips Industries have been improved, as an added benefit, to reduce fatigue and strain on the plug and 7-way electrical cable that can be experienced on some trailer applications where the electrical connection is higher than the air connections.
The trailer side lead on the 7-way electrical cable now extends out an additional 6 inches, and the spiral wrap on the same side is reduced by 6 inches, creating more slack on the 7-way cable. This change relieves strain placed on the cable lead and coupled 7-way electrical connection due to pull from the weight of the combination assembly experienced on some trailer applications.
With this latest product improvement, the rubber air hoses will now act as a shock absorber versus the electrical cable that should not be stretched or stressed. Also, the gladhand connections better support additional assembly pull-weight with a metal to metal connection. As an additional benefit, the extended length allows for more rotation in the lines during a severe jack-knife.
Phillips premium 3-IN-1 and 4-IN-1 combination assemblies with QCP™ or STA-DRY® QCMS2™/QCP™ 7-way electrical connectors provide an all-in-one electrical and air system designed for cable protection and corrosion prevention.
