• Fleets that want advanced corrosion protection and a flexible, modular solution;
• Fleets that turn their trailers over every 5-7 years; and
• Fleets with standard configurations or limited add-on electrical accessories

Boasting a five-year warranty against defects and corrosion, the PetersonPATRIOT is a modular harness system with a distribution module that connects all the lighting components to a small footprint central hub to provide corrosion resistance and troubleshooting and repair. PetersonPATRIOT’s distribution module is the key component of the new design, the manufacturer noted. It uses a circuit board as the junction box which keeps it flexible, compact, and fully protected from moisture intrusion. The compact size also provides manufacturers and fleets maximum flexibility when choosing a mounting location.

Each harness component has industry proven amp-style connectors to stop moisture with silicon seals and built-in locking clips. The connectors are color coded by function, with keyed, one-way connectors. If a repair is needed, PetersonPATRIOT’s modular design allows troubleshooting and replacement of a damaged cable without disturbing the entire system, Peterson Mfg. noted.

Additional components of the PetersonPATRIOT include: Maxi-Seal technology with over-molded amp-style connectors to keep moisture out; Integrated Moisture Barrier to stop moisture from wicking throughout the entire system when a wire is damaged; J560 connector; bullet connectors with molded in O-rings and detents offering secondary locking and improved sealing; and ring terminals with adhesive-filled heat-shrink connectors
