Sloan Transportation Products says its TriMaxx Coiled 7-Way Sealed System, when combined with the receptacle, provides the industry’s most secure and contaminant-free connection between tractor and trailer. According to the company, the TriMaxx system helps minimize truck downtime with the industry’s first integrated plug-face gasket that creates a positive seal to the receptacle, stopping corrosion from reaching the terminals.

Sloan says the TriMaxx plug-face gasket is made of durable PVC and encircles the terminal area, creating a sealed union regardless of the receptacle’s manufacturer. The TriMaxx system features overmolded terminals designed to prevent corrosion migration that typically attacks standard plug-and-socket connections due to contaminants back-flowing down the cable.

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

Sloan says the system — which includes a receptacle, receptacle plug/cable and retaining ring — meets SAE J560 requirements. For more information, go to www.sloantrans.com.
