A Safe, Reliable System
SAFEX is designed and engineered to provide safe and reliable 480 VAC power to operate reefers while they are docked at a distribution center or when they are being unloaded at the place of delivery. The SAFEX system offers a safe, environmentally-friendly power solution for fleets, reefer and trailer manufacturers, distributions centers, and grocery stores and truck stops to help them meet CARB and other anti-idling regulations.
Our technical team is available to work with reefer unit and trailer manufacturers, fleets, and distribution centers to help spec the appropriate SAFEX components for their electrical and mechanical drawings to simplify installation.
SAFEX uses a system of components to safely provide 480 VAC power for your eTRU. Each component is outlined on the system diagram and includes the 1. Auto Eject, 2. Auto Safe, and 3. Your choice of cable management.
The SAFEX system is customizable and allows you to choose the cable management component that works best for your application.
1. The Auto Eject
The Auto Eject is installed on the trailer. It includes a 480 volt, 30 amp receptacle that automatically detects when the cable is connected and ensures that the load is not live unless fully inserted. It utilizes an IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standard 4-pin pin-and-sleeve connector.
When the driver presses the tractor brake, the Auto Eject does its job by ejecting the cable to prevent damage caused by drive-offs (ready for your choice of cable management to take over) and the Auto Safe disconnects the power so that the cable is no longer live.
2. The Auto Safe
The UL listed Auto Safe can be installed at distribution centers, refrigerated warehouses, truck stops, seaports and intermodal facilities, grocery stores, or on a designated shore power station out in the lot. When the Auto Safe receives the signal from the Auto Eject that the power cable is properly connected to the vehicle, it allows power to flow once the operator presses the power button. When the Auto Eject disconnects the cable, the Auto Safe automatically deactivates the 480 volt power cable to prevent accidental electric shock to personnel.
3. Cable Management
The SAFEX system is customizable and allows you to choose the cable management option that works best for your application:
- Cable Hanger – manually coil the cable on this sturdy hanger after the vehicle drives away
- Retraction System – automatically retracts the cable, pulling it away from the vehicle and keeping it off the ground
- Other Custom Options – custom options are available so you can choose the option that works best for your fleet
Any of these options keep the cable off the ground, ensuring that tripping hazards, drive-off damage, drive-over damage, and other potential cable-related risks are mitigated.
Choose Your Custom Kit
To ensure you have the components needed for your application, SAFEX is available in a variety of kits. These kits come in two categories: dock kits and trailer kits. A custom cable management package can then be added to meet your cable management needs.
- Dock Kit – includes the Auto Safe, 15 feet of cable, a 4-pin connecter, and a cable hanger.
- Trailer Kit – includes the Auto Eject, a trailer mounting bracket, and mounting hardware.
- Cable Management Package – choose from our bronze, silver, gold, and platinum packages.
