DIRECT™ LIFTGATE CHARGING SYSTEMS WITH NOSEBOX
The DIRECT™ nosebox line combines all the best features of our original charging systems with a solution that saves you space on the trailer by integrating the liftgate charging system into a nosebox. There are three options available: the PLUS, FLEX, and MAX. See below for details on each system to choose the best option for you based on your application and power needs.
The DIRECT™ Nosebox Line is a Good Match for Fleets that:
- Use the same power connection for all tractor/trailers
- Need an extra boost to optimize charge time
- Make multiple stops during a route and want liftgate batteries to charge faster
Purkeys’ DIRECT™ line meets all power liftgate charging requirements. There are different kits available to meet specific financial or technical needs.
DIRECT™ MAX & DIRECT™ FLEX
The DIRECT™ MAX and DIRECT™ FLEX are liftgate charging systems that are self-contained in a nosebox unit. Each of these products boosts voltage through a DC/DC converter to fully charge electric liftgate batteries faster and overcome the voltage drop between the tractor to the liftgate batteries.
The DIRECT FLEX can draw power from the tractor via multiple paths (stinger cord or 7-way aux pin), and can automatically detect the best path when necessary. It features an easy-to-read LED display that enables drivers and technicians to quickly determine any problems with batteries or power path. The DIRECT controller also maximizes the time that the DC/DC converter can charge liftgate batteries by automatically monitoring the power path and extending the time that liftgate batteries can charge after the tractor has been shut off, without compromising the tractor batteries’ ability to start the engine.
The DIRECT MAX can also draw power from either the tractor or the reefer via multiple paths, selecting the appropriate source when necessary, and has the additional ability to add parallel charging paths from the truck to the battery box, offering more aggressive charging in severe service applications while still extending the time that liftgate batteries can charge after the tractor has been shut off.
Purkeys’ DIRECT™ PLUS is a self-contained, single-source liftgate charging system housed in a nosebox. It boosts voltage through a DC/DC converter to fully charge electric liftgate batteries faster and overcome the voltage drop from the tractor to the liftgate batteries.
The DIRECT PLUS draws power from the 7-way aux pin to automatically regulate liftgate battery charging. By keeping the liftgate batteries charged, the DIRECT PLUS maximizes battery life and allows the liftgate to work more efficiently. The self-contained system saves space on the front of the trailer by combining the nosebox with the liftgate charging system and features an easy-to-read LED display that clearly shows the status of the charging source and the liftgate batteries.
