Copperhead Snake integrates power, ground
Aug 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Waltco Truck Equipment Co introduces the new Copperhead Snake, a single-pole trailer liftgate cable that integrates power and ground wiring into one coiled cable.
The Copperhead Snake is a coiled 0-gauge power and a 2-gauge ground cable with up to two and a half times the charging capability of commonly used 4-gauge charging cords. It provides both the power and ground necessary to serve any 12-vott accessories, such as trailer liftgates.
Because it provides a more reliable power and ground, the Copperhead Snake offers a number of long-term benefits to fleet managers and owner-operators. It provides longer electrical component and battery life for liftgates and other trailer accessories because they receive proper voltage. It reduces downtime and road calls caused by poor grounding, and it reduces wear on other trailer components. Overall, these reduce the cost of ownership for the liftgate and other power accessories.
The Copperhead Snake can also be retrofitted easily since most fleets have single-pin sockets on existing tractor and trailer units. This saves fleets the expense of changing to two-pin socket systems. The Copperhead also comes with a heavy-duty spring and hangers so that it can be attached to the slide bar on the tractor.
