Rugged, sealed
interconnects that install
and disconnect easily
The TE Connectivity single-pole
Deutsch DTSK Connectors are
designed to connect power in a
variety of applications, specifically
offering the ease of connecting
and disconnecting in safer and
more accessible areas than at the
power source itself. These heavy
duty thermoplastic connectors are
rated up to 125A. The connectors
are designed to withstand harsh
conditions and feature latch-style
mating and an integrated secondary lock. DTSK connectors can be
used inline or mounted as passthrough connectors with the addition of an optional flange.

Engineered to operate
in harsh environments
The Optronics LED Surface
Mount Beacons employ a solid-state, surface-mount device
(SMD) design that protects their
electronics against moisture,
shock, and vibration. The rugged
beacon lamps are available in 5.5"
and 7" heights and feature 30
selectable flash pattern modes.
They come complete with 9', 12V
power plugs and switches. The
beacon lamps meet Class 1 and
California Title 13 requirements,
along with Society of Automotive
Engineers (SAE) standards: SAE
J595 and SAE J845. They have an
IP65 rating for dust and water
resistance. They come with
Optronics' one-diode lifetime warranty protection, which will replace
any lamp if even one diode fails.

Improve Your Bottom Line
There are more options for trailer
tire pressure management than
ever before. When selecting a
tire pressure system, owneroperators and fleet managers
must determine which technology best meets their operational
requirements and provides the
best return on investment.
Hendrickson delivers a complete
solution with TIREMAAX® PRO.
It is an advanced automatic tire
pressure control system for the
trailer industry capable of active
inflation, relieving and equalizing, resulting in reduced tire
wear, improved productivity and
increased fuel mileage.
TIREMAAX PRO features a
mechanical design that constantly monitors tire pressure to
respond to under-inflated tires
and changes in outside temperature that can cause over-inflated
tires. The patented system draws
from the trailer air supply to help
keep all the trailer tires properly
inflated and rolling smoothly.
PRO detects pressure dips below
a preset level in one or more tires
and directs air to the affected
tire(s). The system responds to
changes in outside temperature and prevents over-inflation
by relieving air from the tires.
This excess pressure flows back
through the supply lines and
exhausts at the controller. Finally,
TIREMAAX PRO equalizes the
pressure at all wheel positions
by using special valves in the

hubcaps that allow air to flow
both to and from the tires. This
ability to equalize pressures
reduces scrubbing between
duals and improves tire life.
According to industry sources, proper tire inflation can
yield savings in the three greatest expense areas for fleets
and owner-operators - labor,
fuel and tires. TIREMAAX PRO can
pay for itself in a year or less with
the savings incurred from labor
savings associated with frequent
tire pressure checks, increased
fuel mileage, and reduced tire
maintenance and replacement
costs. Can you afford not to spec
