Phillips Industries has expanded its line of Quick-Connect Plug (QCP) assemblies by offering them as an option on all electrical cables.
With QCP electrical assemblies, the time it takes to change a plug is cut from 20 minutes down to less than 2 minutes, allowing a fleet to save the cost of an additional electrical assembly.
The plug is easily removed and replaced with a new corrosion-resistant QCP cartridge. Extra cartridges can be stored on-board for quick on-road repairs.
The QCP cartridge is field-repaired in seconds and sealed for corrosion protection to last longer than standard assemblies. Phillips electrical assemblies are chemical and abrasion resistant and have excellent re-coil memory.
