Purkeys details Select vs. Direct liftgate charging systems

Purkeys consolidates liftgate charging systems

Purkeys consolidated all of its TC products into two liftgate charging systems. By consolidating to the Select and the Direct, Purkeys has made it easier for fleets to find the right solution to their liftgate battery needs, said the company.

Both systems improve charge time by utilizing a DC/DC converter, which boosts the voltage available at the liftgate battery. This overcomes the voltage drop caused by long cables and will compensate for colder temperatures. They also have easy-to-read indicator lights, enabling drivers and technicians to confirm the charging system is working properly before leaving the lot, according to Purkeys.

The systems differ when it comes to connecting to the power source. The Direct draws from the tractor, while the Select has the ability to choose between the reefer unit or the tractor depending on the best available source.

Fleets can now charge liftgate batteries faster in low mileage, high frequency liftgate operation applications. Purkeys’ design allows fleets to notice if liftgate batteries are being charged just by looking in the driver’s side mirror.
