Phillips Industries Receives Patent for QCP™

Santa Fe Springs, CA (February 18, 2007) Phillips Industries has been issued a U.S. patent covering their Quick Connect Plug (QCP™). The patented design of the QCP™ makes changing plug ends on electrical cables quick and easy because it’s only necessary to unscrew one set screw, unplug the quick-connect cartridge insert and plug in a new one. And because there is no need to replace the entire cable assembly or the plug, replacement costs are limited. The disposable cartridges feature floating solid brass pins which offer a positive plug/socket connection and greater conductivity. QCP™ also fights the affects of corrosion on electrical performance because the molded connectors block contaminants from entering the front and rear of the plug. The QCP™ patented technology is another example of Phillips Industries’ leadership in developing electrical and air brake interface equipment solutions for the commercial vehicle industry.
