Phillips Industries has introduced the Permalogic Smart-Charge trailer power management system for liftgate and auxiliary battery banks.
The system recognizes and automatically manages the best power sources and charges the batteries from all available sources at the same time.
The Permalogic Smart-Charge system can pull from the following sources individually or collectively: the dual/single pole liftgate charging system, the tractor batteries, the reefer or from a fourth source like solar power. The system has built-in low voltage detection to avoid draining power sources and an LED indicator to display which power input source is being used.
“Some trailer applications tax the batteries more heavily than others and cannot keep up with existing charging methods that rely on a single source” said Adam Bean, new product development manager at Phillips. “This system is the ultimate solution which accommodates for all charging methods.”
