Durability, Longevity and Reliability

Operating in demanding conditions, trailer lights must withstand the rigors of the road and weather elements. Phillips Industries recognizes this requirement and has engineered their lights to be exceptionally durable and reliable.

The PERMALITE XT Trailer Lighting features groundbreaking BoardFree technology that eliminates the need for a Printed Circuit Board (PCB), enhancing the resilience of our products against damage caused by liquids or chemicals. Additionally, the overmolded and PCB-free design of BoardFree guarantees that our lighting solutions maintain exceptional resistance to corrosion, water, shocks, and impacts. Phillips Industries lighting products deliver unmatched performance and longevity in any environment.

When lights go out, numerous companies offer complimentary truck light replacements, yet the associated downtime leads to reduced efficiency and negatively impacts the fleet’s profitability. Phillips Industries provides a reliable solution. The durability of Phillips Industries BoardFree LED lights keeps trailers out of the shop for maintenance, and eliminates the need for drivers to carry replacement lights – translating into reduced maintenance costs and increased uptime for fleets – all maximizing operational efficiency.

Unmatched Visibility and Increased Safety

One of the key factors in ensuring safe transportation is excellent visibility, especially for large trailers. Phillips Industries understands this critical need and has developed a range of lights that excel in providing unparalleled visibility on the road.

The PERMALITE XT Trailer Lighting series features advanced LED technology that produces bright, clear, and highly visible lighting. Our lights deliver maximum light output while consuming minimal power – making them energy-efficient and reducing strain on the vehicle’s electrical system. With their optimized light dispersion and wide-angle illumination, Phillips Industries lights ensure that other motorists can clearly see and identify the trailer, enhancing safety on the road.

By harnessing the power of sensors and data analytics via the Phillips Connect Smart7 nosebox and Connect1 monitoring platform, fleets can detect issues and alert drivers in real-time. This proactive approach significantly reduces the risk of accidents, making roads safer for everyone. Additionally, the system’s advanced lighting features increase the visibility of trailers to others, especially during adverse weather conditions or low-light situations, further minimizing the chances of collisions and potential for expensive liability.

Versatility and Ease of Installation

Phillips Industries understands the importance of versatility and ease of installation, especially for fleet operators who need efficient solutions for their trailers. The PERMALITE XT Trailer Lighting series offers a wide range of lights and accessories, allowing for flexible customization to suit various trailer configurations and applications.

In addition, Phillips Industries lights are user-friendly. Our plug-and-play connectors and pre-assembled components, make installation and maintenance easy, increasing uptime and simplifying maintenance procedures.

Optimizing Fleet Management

Efficient fleet management is crucial for trucking companies to stay competitive and maintain profitability. The Phillips Industries lighting, Phillips Connect Smart7 nosebox and Connect1 monitoring platform trio, offers a comprehensive solution for fleet managers to streamline operations and reduce downtime.

In addition to lighting, the Phillips Connect Smart7 nosebox and Connect1’s dashboard provide customizable real-time data on various aspects of a trailer’s health.

By continuously monitoring various aspects of a trailer’s health, fleet managers proactively identify potential issues and schedule preventive maintenance, minimizing costly breakdowns and unexpected repairs.

Moreover, the platform offers geofencing capabilities, enabling fleet managers to set virtual boundaries for their vehicles. Geofencing alerts can be configured to notify managers of dimming lights via Light Out√ or other maintenance issues when a truck enters or leaves a predefined area, allowing for efficient asset security and improved accountability.

The introduction of Phillips Industries lighting, the Phillips Connect Smart7 nosebox and the Connect1 monitoring platform has ushered in a new era of connectivity and safety in the trucking industry. By combining intelligent lighting systems with real-time data insights, these solutions enhance safety, optimize fleet management, and improve efficiency.


With the ability to detect potential issues, monitor crucial vehicle parameters, and provide actionable insights, trucking companies can experience significant improvements in safety, productivity, and profitability. As technology continues to advance, innovations like the Phillips Industries PERMALITE™ XT Trailer Lighting, the Phillips Connect Smart7 nosebox and the Connect 1 monitoring system will shape the future of the commercial trailer industry, ensuring a safer and more efficient transportation ecosystem for all.
