SELECT™ LIFTGATE CHARGING SYSTEM
SELECT™ LIFTGATE CHARGING SYSTEM
Purkeys’ SELECT™ liftgate charging system fully and efficiently charges liftgate batteries. The SELECT can draw power from either the tractor or the reefer via multiple paths (Stinger Cord, Reefer, or 7-Way Aux Pin). It can automatically detect the best path when necessary.
The SELECT has LED indicator lights that alert operators to any issues with the power source, path, or batteries. The system identifies where the issue lies in the circuitry, which reduces troubleshooting time.
The SELECT boosts voltage with its DC to DC converter. This boost helps overcome voltage drop from the truck to the liftgate batteries.
This system connects to the following:
- Stinger Cord (Dual Pole and/or Single Pole)
- Reefer Electrical System
- 7-way Aux Pin
SELECT is Ideal for Fleets that:
- Need reliable, easy-to-use systems
- Run tractor trailers with multiple available power sources and paths
- Have unknown power connections from the tractor to trailer
The SELECT meets all power liftgate charging requirements. There are different kits available to meet specific financial or technical needs.

What is a Select Liftgate Charging System?
The Select Liftgate Charging System uses two or three inputs from the stinger, 7-way cord, or reefer; an electronic controller; and a DC/DC converter to optimize charging voltage and extend liftgate battery charging times. LED indicators on the front of the controller show liftgate battery and charging system status to alert of potential charging system problems.
How do Select and Direct Liftgate Charging Systems optimize charging voltage?
Direct and Select Liftgate Charging Systems optimize liftgate charging voltage in two ways. First, the DC/DC converter eliminates the voltage loss associated with traditional extended length dual and single pole charging circuits by raising the low-charging voltage to the correct level. Second, the DC/DC converter adjusts charging voltage based on temperature, with higher voltages in cold weather and lower voltages in hot weather. These two features ensure optimal charging voltage to maintain maximum battery state of charge for increased liftgate performance and battery life.
How do Select and Direct Liftgate Charging Systems extend battery charging times?
Direct and Select Liftgate Charging Systems can extend battery charging times by keeping the DC/DC converter on, even when the truck or refrigeration unit is turned off. This is done by the controller, which monitors the truck/reefer battery state of charge and only allows extended charging to occur if the truck/reefer batteries are at a high state of charge. When the controller detects the truck batteries becoming discharged, it turns off the DC/DC converter, protecting the truck from a possible no-start condition.
What is voltage drop?
Voltage drop is the loss in voltage in all or part of a circuit when electrical current is flowing. Voltage drop can only occur when current is flowing.
How long does it take to install a Select or Direct Liftgate Charging System, and will it require special tools or training?
All Select and Direct Liftgate Charging Systems come with comprehensive installation and troubleshooting guides that include detailed text and photos. No special tools or training are required. The guides can also be accessed on our website (http://purkeys.net/select/#PRODUCT_INFORMATION and http://purkeys.net/direct/#PRODUCT_INFORMATION). Installation times vary, but first-time installations can generally be done in approximately 4 hours. Installations can be done in less than 4 hours once a technician becomes familiar with the process and trailers being worked on.
How do I know when the Select or Direct System is charging the liftgate batteries?
Select and Direct Systems have LED Indicators to assure the operator of proper system function. A properly charging system will have a Lift Battery and Source (Reefer, Stinger, or Aux) LEDs that are solid green when there is sufficient power available at one of the input sources.
