Liftgate batteries on a full-size trailer are connected at a distance from the tractor unit by a long length of cable with a plug and socket that may have a poor electrical connection. These conditions frequently result in an undercharged trailer battery and a liftgate motor that’s functioning at a lower voltage/higher current than rated. These conditions can result in a shorter life for the battery and the tailgate motor.
The LGBC Series automatically ensures that remote batteries are charged at optimum voltage and current, and compensates for battery temperature. The conditioned current and voltage allow the liftgate to be operated longer on any delivery run, and protect the battery and motor.
