Purkey’s releases liftgate charging system testing solution

Purkey’s Fleet Electric has unveiled the Liftgate Double Check (LDC), a new way to easily test liftgate charging systems. The LDC comes with an LED light display that will inform the user that they are connected to a good power source. The LDC will show how many amps the batteries are pulling. Its connections can fit a dual pole, single pole, or seven-way, and it comes with each of those types of connectors.  There is a breaker at the top for safety, and there are two inputs for multimeter leads at the bottom of the LDC.

“This tool makes it easy to test the liftgate charging system on a wide variety of vehicles,” said Rylar Masco, national original equipment manufacturer representative for Purkey’s. “The Liftgate Double Check gives you an easy way to connect and diagnose any issues with a liftgate charging system. It also gives fleets a way to ensure that there is no issue with the trailer or tractor.”
