Phillips designed its Permalogic Reefer — an all-weather, all-electronic controller — to manage power to trailer dome lamps in reefer trailers, allowing operation of the trailer dome lamps even if the trailer is not connected to the tractor, while also protecting the operation of the refrigeration unit.

If the refrigeration unit battery falls below 12.2 volts, the Permalogic Reefer control will shut off power to the interior lamps to save available power for the refrigeration unit, according to the company; to further save battery power, Permalogic Reefer also will turn off interior dome lamps automatically after 30 minutes of continuous use. Phillips says Permalogic Reefer also switches off the interior dome lamps automatically when the brakes are applied, enhancing vehicle safety by making maximum power available for the brake ABS function.
