“With our new S77, we have taken all of the high-quality, safety and performance features of our award winning electrical towing connection system, including a water-proof, corrosion free, break away design, and incorporated camera circuits within the same connector” said Joe Cardoza, president of EZ Connector. “We believe that the backward compatible S77s integration of 7 additional circuits within the regular 7 circuits allow connection with both trucks and trailers with only 7 regular trailer circuits. However, when both truck and trailer have the S77 end, they are able to communicate camera and or data to each other in one single cable with all the fidelity and reliability of the S7 connector." Since the S77 shares the same body and wiring interfaces as the S7, all the easy installation features including, plug-n-play and no drill installation in all Fords & GM vehicles since 2000, and more recent models of Dodge, Toyota and Nissan trucks are the same for the new S77 series. T-connector versions for installation in the pickup sidewalls for 5th Wheel and gooseneck trailer uses are also available. In addition all the adapters designed for the S7 version to convert to the older 7-way RV, 6 way round and 4 way flat will work on the new S77 version. "Initially the wire leads for the camera circuit will be hardwired but we are looking for backup camera and can bus module manufacturers to partner with us in developing plug-in interfaces. We look forward to bringing the new S77 to market in 2014." Unlike the common blade plugs available in today’s market, the patented EZ Connector products, including the new S77, S7 and R7, use spring-loaded face-to-face contacts so that drawbacks such as arcing and contact abrasion from use are eliminated. The combination of spring-loaded pins and fixed contacts also allows for electricity to reliably pass from socket to plug, and mitigates problems such as voltage drop due to increased contact deterioration and corrosion, and the resulting failure of brakes and lights. In addition, EZ Connector offers the industry’s only vehicle-trailer connector that has been certified lab tested to the Society of Automotive Engineers standard for waterproof and corrosion-resistance when in use, given its built-in double O-ring seals. EZ Connector uses neodymium magnets to hold the plug and socket together rather than a latch. The sheer strength of these magnets provides additional support for keeping the plug and socket affixed in a variety of situations including vibrations, abrupt movements and bumpy road conditions, while allowing for both plug and socket to immediately release in case a user forgets to disconnect the trailer from the vehicle.
