Fleets often have a lot of devices taking up space on the front of the trailer, including their noseboxes and liftgate charging systems. We’ve worked to help alleviate that problem with our new generation of the DIRECT™—the DIRECT nosebox.

The original DIRECT system, designed to pull power from either the 7-way or the dual pole without jeopardizing the tractor’s ability to crank, is still available as a control module mounted to the front of the trailer.

However, the new DIRECT nosebox is the same great charging system we had before, but is designed into one nosebox and adds additional features, which help:

  • save space on the front of the trailer
  • standardize your fleet

One of the additional features of the nosebox is the option of an interior light controller. The interior light controller is designed to turn on the lights in the inside of a trailer and shut them off either via a timer or if the liftgate batteries drop to a low state of charge.

The benefits to having this liftgate charging system include keeping the liftgate batteries at a high state of charge so the liftgate operates properly, and keeping the trailer and truck on the road.

For a demonstration of how the new DIRECT nosebox works, sign up for our free webinar. The live event will be hosted on February 22, 2018, and will be available for on-demand viewing 24 hours after the live event.
