Phillips’ auxiliary plug and socket

Phillips Auxiliary Vertical Dual Pole Offset PlugPhillips’ auxiliary vertical dual pole plug and socket is engineered for high-current connections that provide power from the tractor to application-specific equipment on the trailer. The design includes a robust plug-to-socket lock and offset pins that allow for ground contact to occur prior to power, which impedes arcing. The plug is available in either four- or six-gauge to accommodate both types of cable, and the socket can be installed universally for either application.
