Phillips Industries announced two new Permalogic trailer power management products at TMC's meeting in Tampa: Permalogic TC and Permalogic TC Plus.

The Permalogic TC liftgate battery-charging system allows for more frequent liftgate usage because it provides a 14.4-volt charge to the liftgate batteries, charging them to full capacity, said Phillips. In most cases, the device can eliminate a dual or single pole setup, and because it automatically interrupts the charge when the brakes are applied, it allows full power to the ABS system when needed.

The Permalogic TC Plus combines the liftgate battery-charging system and the Permalogic dome lamp controller into a single nosebox. It allows for trailer dome lamps to be controlled normally and the liftgate charger used when needed to provide maximum charge to the liftgate battery.

Phillips introduced the original Permalogic dome-lamp controller last year.
