LOWELL, Ark., June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Purkeys, a company focused on providing electrical solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, is proud to announce that the 20 Amp Applied Load Module comes with Purkeys' Liftgate Double Check as a free accessory.
This useful tool gives technicians the ability to perform a load test on their vehicles. It works in conjunction with the Liftgate Double Check to help make sure the tractor is going to have sufficient energy to charge liftgate batteries.
"The 20 Amp Applied Load Module pulls a 20-amp, fixed load and gives you the ability to check what the voltage drop is on the tractor," said Rylar Masco, Purkeys' National Original Equipment Manufacturer Representative. "Now technicians can make sure they have sufficient output voltage to the trailer."
Knowing the voltage drop is paramount because too much dropped voltage means the liftgate charging system will not function properly. Purkeys' DIRECT and SELECT need at least 10.5 volts at the trailer to charge the liftgate batteries reliably.
The 20 Amp Applied Load Module comes equipped with a LED display that informs technicians when the system is ready to start and when the test is complete.
This module is just part of the total package that makes the Liftgate Double Check a necessity for fleets that use liftgates. With a multimeter, the 20 Amp Applied Load Module and the Liftgate Double Check technicians have an easy way to ensure the tractor and trailer's electrical systems are working properly.
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. Their level of expertise has garnered more than 10 U.S. patents and attracted the attention of fleets, OEMs and other industry leaders throughout North America.
