Phillips enhances 3-IN-1 trailer connections to relieve strain

Premium assemblies with QCP trailer-side connectivity now include advanced trailer-side cable guard, 3-inch extension

Premium 3-IN-1 electrical and air combination assemblies with QCP (Quick-Change Plug) trailer-side connections from Phillips Industries now will include an advanced trailer-side cable guard and an additional 3-inch assembly extension, according to the company.

As combination assemblies’ popularity continues to gain ground, Phillips engineers seek to improve these connections where possible. The latest product enhancement is intended to relieve strain at the back of the plug, Phillips said. This could be a stress point for any standard cable during a tight turn or jackknife, but combination assemblies can be more susceptible to strain because of these products’ typical weight.

The tension over time can weaken the connection, leading to possible continuity issues or damage to the cable at the back of the plug. By adding a new durable, non-corrosive and flexible trailer-side cable guard to the QCP plug, and an extra 3 inches of assembly length, this becomes the most advanced combination assembly in the market.

Phillips Industries’ premium 3-IN-1s offer cable and corrosion protection with innovative solutions for quick and easy serviceability. Through the technology of the QCP’s removable plug-in cartridge, which can be serviced and replaced in less than two minutes, there is no re-wiring, no shrinking cable lengths due to plug replacement, and no disassembly of the 3-IN-1 to replace an entire electrical cable, the company said.

With enhanced features to these 3-IN-1 assemblies, such as the QCP and new advanced cable guard, time and costs associated with unnecessary downtime are minimized, making it a top choice for combination assembly applications.
