Phillips Industries has expanded its family of weather-proof dual pole QCS2 (quick-change socket) connections to include a straight back version, designed for both tractor and trailer applications.
Phillips says the Dual Pole QCS2 is designed for a weather-proof liftgate socket connection that offers socket replacement without the need to re-wire. The company adds it has “superior corrosion protection.”
The molded straight-back harness boot with a sealed inner cavity is completely molded to the liftgate harness cable. It grips the bulleted socket and holds it in place to block moisture and contaminant entry where they join together. The socket housing is non-corrosive, and offset pins prevent accidental arcing by grounding the connection before power begins circulating through the system, Phillips says.
In addition to the new straight back version, Phillips is also introducing a complete Dual Pole QCS2 installation kit for tractors, with everything needed to upgrade from a zinc die-cast liftgate connection to a weather-proof, corrosion-resistant one.
The Dual Pole QCS2 straight back version is available from Phillips authorized dealers for dual pole connections on the tractor or trailer side, with a 48-in. blunt cut battery cable harness offered with either a 2-gauge or 4-gauge option.
