Over 50% of all electric lift trucks bought today three-wheellers and they have greatest range of applications, from running for just 1/2 a hort at a time to working three full shifts a day.
The J series uses only the best European control system. Smaller trucks with less demanding work patterns are fitted with market leading ZAPI DC SEM controllers.
For heavier-duty trucks it makes sense to select the Danaher AC controllers which optimize battery power, particularly helpful on ramps and long runs as well as high lifts.
The J series¡¯ design pays great attention to the driver zone: a strong grab handle is provided, with a large low step for easy access.
A clear footwell with well-placed pedals gives plenty of room for large feet and helps the driver work safely. The simple, concise instrument panel is less distracting yet still offers a comprehensive warning system.
Hydraulic levers can be mounted on either the scuttle or beside the battery, allowing access from either side.
The standard Grammer GS12 semi-suspension seat is a clear benefit for longer shifts or mature operators and gives comfortable support.
The incorporation of ZF developed components, including finely engineering helical gears, assures low noise, high quality and a longer service life.
For heavy-duty application the AC system and brushless motors with minimum servicing is ideal for long cycle, ramps and high lifts.
SEM drive motor provides more advanced control feature. The ZAPI controller control the traveling, lifting, tilting and steering action.
Twin DC or AC motors are readily accessible from either the front or above, minimizing service time.
DC or AC ¨C the choice is yours
The ultimate in DC control is the ZAPI high frequency MOSFET microprocessor, coupled with separately excited motors (SEM) to give the truck smooth can be imposed and more than 30 performance characteristics can be adjusted. An excellent system for smaller trucks with a medium workload.
AC technology is better suited to heavy-duty applications. The use of current is optimized and AC ,motors are brushless, which minimizes servicing. Motors can be very protected against the water and dust. Roll-back is almost eliminated and higher travel speeds are attainable.
Both systems are fully adjustable to suit the load, the working area and the operator. In built diagnostics record intermittent faults and service requirements reducing expensive service time.
The choice is between ZAPI DC control originating in Italy or Danaher AC systems produced in Sweden.
