The Defender system features robust harness components along with Peterson's Piranha LED lights. The system is totally sealed against moisture and corrosion through Maxi-Seal's exclusive Power-Seal Technology. An extended warranty backs the system against defects and corrosion for a 10-year period.
"Combating the 'chemical cocktail' on today's roads is a huge issue for the trailer industry," said Tim Gilbert, director of heavy-duty/fleet sales at Peterson.
During field tests on a fleet of 20 semi-trailers driving 1.6 million miles, the company says there has not been any problems with the system.
Maxi-Seal's Power-Seal Technology features a universal distribution module, heavy-duty terminals, long-life silicone seals, installation-friendly modular plugs, sealed break-out molds, a 0.180 bullet mold design, integrated moisture barrier, dual isolated grounding, sealed terminal rings and J560 connectors.
In addition to the Piranha LED lights, the Defender offers weather-sealed connectors, linear-welded lamp housing, terminations potted into the housing, acrylic DR lens and ABS housing.
