PHILLIPS INDUSTRIES NOW OFFERS THE PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR SYSTEM TO THE AFTERMARKET FOR FLEET RETRO-FIT
Santa Fe Springs, CA (August 24, 2009) Phillips has released their PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR SYSTEM designed specifically for fleets using refrigerated trailers and liftgates. A common problem many of these fleets are experiencing is that the liftgate batteries do not recharge quickly enough to provide a full day’s worth of deliveries. The cost of a non-functioning liftgate can be expensive and make it very difficult to maintain an on-time delivery schedule.
The PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR SYSTEM is integrated into a sealed junction box at the nose of the trailer. A dual pole socket is used to pull power directly from the truck batteries along with a direct connection from the reefer batteries. By sensing the source of power with the most charging capacity, the PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR SYSTEM directs the charge to a DC to DC converter, which boosts the voltage to 14.4 volts. This accelerates the charging process between deliveries to ensure the liftgate has sufficient power at the next stop.
The PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR SYSTEM also works on a reefer trailer when it is staged for transfer, or not connected to a truck. By drawing power from the running reefer unit every time it cycles on, liftgate batteries get a frequent recharge to assure they are operational the next time the liftgate is used.
The PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR SYSTEM is available to buy as individual components, or as a kit. Included in the kit is the PERMALOGIC™ SELECTOR Nose Box with a dual pole socket, a Trailcharger (DC to DC Converter), a Reefer Harness, and an installation manual. In addition, Phillips offers Trailcharger harnesses in 30’, 40’, and 50’ lengths to fit virtually any trailer liftgate battery configuration.
