BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. Whitney Blake Company has introduced its Tuffline Straight Cable Assembly as part of its Tuffline truck cord series.

Whitney Blake’s new truck cable is an interconnect system designed to meet the rigorous, heavy-duty demands of the trucking industry. The Tuffline Green truck cord meets the highest power requirements of ABS and general purpose red cable assembles to SAE. Each truck cable is pre-engineered with superior abrasion resistance, extension life, sag-resistant coil memory and resistance to road salt.

Whitney Blake’s Tuffline truck cables are seven conductor cables used to carry electrical power from the tractor to the trailer. They deliver excellent resistance to fluids of all kinds, including: battery acid, brake fluid, diesel fuel, engine coolants, power steering fluid, and a host of other oils that pose problems for normal truck cables. The unique barrel design of the connector promotes multi-contact points, eliminates pin surface treatment wear, lowers insertion force, and requires no contact grease.

Each truck cable also features specially designed connectors and a rugged, abrasion-resistant jacket for handling the rough conditions inherent to the trucking industry.
