Phillips Industries, a manufacturer of electrical and air brake system components, has introduced Qwik-Check. The device can be integrated into the electrical system of the nosebox, a housing compartment mounted on a trailer, and was developed to quickly and easily confirm power within the 7-way connection between the tractor and trailer.
With the tractor turned on and power supplied to the 7-way connection, the color-coded LED lights of the Qwik-Check will light up as each circuit receives power. Each light is an indication that power to the correlating circuit is reaching the 7-way connection. If a light does not come on, it indicates that there is a problem with the associated circuit and further investigation is warranted.
The Qwik-Check is currently offered for universal installation on any nosebox, or as a readily available replacement for units already installed on the i-Box or Volt-Box noseboxes. The universal unit comes with 12-inch blunt cut wires and ring terminals to customize installation. Replacement units come with wires pre-cut to length and ring terminals already installed.
