Phillips Industries Introduces New Combination
Single and Dual Pole CHARGE-BOX™
Santa Fe Springs, CA (February 25, 2010) Phillips Industries has introduced
their new CHARGE-BOX™, a STA-DRY® Nosebox with both single and dual pole charging
sockets. The Phillips CHARGE-BOX™ offers the flexibility many fleets, particularly
leasing fleets, require to provide power to trailers with liftgates, which
commonly have either a single or a dual pole connector. The Phillips CHARGE-BOX™
is an innovative solution for a fleet that uses tractors with dual and single
pole liftgate cables. Since the Phillips CHARGE-BOX™ contains both a single
and dual pole socket, the fleet is guaranteed to have the right tractor every
time. The CHARGE-BOX™ was developed by Phillips Industries to provide a solution
that fleet managers need to eliminate the high cost of pairing trucks and trailers
with the correct liftgate or auxiliary power connections.
The STA-DRY® Nosebox has an impact-resistant non-corrosive, nylon housing with
steel reinforced mounting collars. The single and dual pole sockets with solid
brass pins are enclosed in zinc die-cast housings for durability. Mounting
holes at each socket location are elongated for adaptability and each socket
lid has a stainless steel hinge pin and spring for long life.
Phillips combination single and dual pole CHARGE-BOX™, (Part No. 16-77712)
can be specified on new trailers or purchased through authorized Phillips distributors.
