Phillips’ smart trailer nosebox

Phillips has enhanced its QBox trailer wire management nosebox system to now include its Permalogic feature designed to manage power to the trailer dome lamps at the 7-way connection. With Permalogic, the possibility of leaving the lamps on is eliminated by either manually switching the dome lamps on and off on the QBox, stepping on the brake pedal to turn the lamps off, allowing the system’s automatic timer to turn off the lamps or taking advantage of the system’s low-voltage disconnect. The QBox with Permalogic can be spec’d with or without circuit breakers and is built to offer 50% more interior working space, keeping trailer wires organized and pinch-free, while its durable Sta-Dry housing helps protect the internal wiring against corrosion, chemicals and extreme weather. The QBox also features the company’s QCS2 (Quick-Change Socket) that facilitates faster and easier socket replacement and added corrosion protection at the 7-way trailer connection. Retrofitting a QBox already installed on a trailer to include Permalogic doesn’t require removal and installation of a new nosebox, only a lid replacement.
