LOWELL, Ark., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Purkeys, a company focused on providing electrical solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, has developed a way to easily test liftgate charging systems. The Liftgate Double Check (LDC) is a new tool that will soon become a necessity for fleet's that use liftgates.
"This tool makes it easy to test the liftgate charging system on a wide variety of vehicles," said Rylar Masco, Purkeys' National Original Equipment Manufacturer Representative. "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."
The LDC comes with an LED light display that will tell you when you are connected to a good power source. The LDC will show how many amps the batteries are pulling. This is important to determine that the system starts and operates properly.
Its connections can fit a dual pole, single pole, or 7-way. The LDC comes with all the aforementioned connectors. There is a breaker at the top for safety, and there are two inputs for multimeter leads at the bottom of the LDC.
The LDC provides a quick and easy way to simulate the loads of a lift gate charging system. When using the appropriate connectors, you can quickly and easily test the truck and its connecting circuits to make sure they are working properly and capable of supporting a liftgate charging system, even if a trailer is not available.
"It will tell you simply and easily if everything is working properly," Masco said.
For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. They look at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically work to achieve the maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage.
