Power with clever new trailer socket

Written by  Mark Daniel

Narva has released a seven-pin flat trailer socket with a heavy duty battery connector that makes it extra versatile.

The product suits drivers who regularly tow and who need battery maintenance on a trailer with powered equipment.

The 7-pin trailer plug delivers power to operate the standard stop, tail, reverse and licence plate lights, and it has a connector that delivers up to 50A of power to the battery to charge, maintain or power equipment. The new socket and connector allow equipment to be powered while being towed, making sure its ready for use at a destination. 

This socket and connector comprise a moulded hard plastic housing for reliability, and its low profile design makes it easy to mount and compatible with the standard mounting plate on most common towbars. 

When not in use, it fits into a rubber tab. Side tabs make the spring loaded cover easy to open.

The product has silver plated copper contacts to suit 8mm² (8B&S) cables.
