Sloan Transportation Products says its engineers have developed a receptacle that, when combined with the sealed plug, provides the industry’s most secure and contaminant-free connection between tractor and trailer. According to the company, the new Trimaxx 7-Way Sealed Plug System has the industry’s first integrated plug-face gasket, creating a positive seal to the receptacle and stopping corrosion from reaching the terminals.

In addition, Sloan has designed an integrated drip-edge channel to eliminate back-flowing contaminants from coming down the cable into the plug/socket connection; the channel helps extend the life of both the plug and socket by redirecting corrosive liquids away from the connection. And to assist drivers in plugging and unplugging, Sloan has added a more secure gripping point to the system.
