Phillips Industries Introduces New V-CHECK™1 Battery Status Indicator

Santa Fe Springs, CA (May 10, 2012) Phillips Industries has introduced a new 24 volt V-CHECK™1 Battery Status Indictor. The company also offers a 12-volt version. With one quick look, the V-CHECK™1 will ensure vehicle operators that their batteries have all the power they need. The V-CHECK™1 continuously monitors the state of power for any battery, particularly lift gate batteries, and flashes RED if they are too low. Batteries can then be charged before they are needed, eliminating a situation where battery power is required but not available.

Phillips V-CHECK™1 is a simple device that alerts operators during pre-trip inspections that battery power may be lower than required to complete the day’s tasks. With V-CHECK™1 there will be no more missed deliveries because a lift gate is non-operational due to loss of power. If battery voltage is more than 12.4 volts or 75% power, the LED light flashes green but if the voltage falls below 12.39 volts, the light will blink red indicating that batteries should be charged before the trailer leaves on the next trip.

Phillips’s new 24 volt V-CHECK™1 Battery Status Indicator, part number 60-9024 and the 12 volt version, part number 60-9000, are available through Phillips authorized distributors.
