Phillips Industries — a Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based supplier and manufacturer of advanced electrical and air brake interface equipment for the commercial vehicle industry — announced today, Dec. 10, that it has received federal patents for its Permalogic controller and Sta-Dry Slim-7 trailer harness.

Permalogic all-electronic noseboxes are designed to control the trailer interior dome lamps and charge the liftgate batteries. Permalogic units are designed for fleets making multiple deliveries, such as food service and other refrigerated operations. The Permalogic products are designed to direct power where it’s needed the most, resulting in maximum safety, efficiency and reduced costs.

The Permalogic family of products includes the Permalogic Dome Lamp Controller; Permalogic TC Liftgate battery charging system; Permalogic TC Plus, which combines the benefits and capabilities of the Permalogic and the Permalogic TC in a single nosebox; and the Permalogic Reefer, an all-weather, all-electronic controller designed to manage power to trailer dome lamps in trailers with refrigeration units.

The Sta-Dry Slim-7 Trailer Harness is a thin, molded seven-way connection designed to fit easily through the frame rails of any trailer. Like all Phillips trailer harness systems, the Sta-Dry Slim-7 has molded connections between modules with specially designed ribs and o-rings that keeps moisture and contaminants from penetrating the electrical system, eliminating corrosion problems.
