The lower step height, the steel step plate and all ergonomics are designed for customer’ s comfort and convenience. Large floorboard area accommodates large boots. The clear arranged display provides important truck information so that the operator is well informed and able to do safety work all the time.
All new AC-motors are fully enclosed to keep out dust and contaminates. Wet invironment is not an issue. No brushes have to be changed or commutator to turn over at the induction motors. Only serviceable parts are bearings and seals. All motors are equipped with a thermistor which constantly monitors temperature. Should the temperature approach the thermal limit, the control gradually cuts back current. Limiting current does not limit maximum travel speed. Once motor temperature decreases, full power is automatically restored. Operator may never feel the cut-back. Latest Zapi-AC-system is minimizing ernergy consumption.
Regenerative braking returns energy into the battery, not into the brakes in the form of heat and is standard on the EPX. This is accomplished one of three ways; via releasing the accelerator pedal, changing direction of travel or applying the service brake. Using regenerative braking also prolongs the life of the truck’s service brakes.
Because of its hydrostatic steering system the EPX 16/18/20s is easily maneuverable.
One AC motor for lifting and steering operation. A flow control valve ensures that steering has priority. Linear potentiometer on lift handle provides fully proportional lift. At conserving energy, motor only runs as fast as needed. Motor speed can be adjusted to meet attachement needs. The pump motor is designed to reduce steering and lift noise.
Sealed and canted rollers minimize deflection and free-play in both the upright and carriage. Six carriage load rollers spread out the load significantly improving roller life. Side thrust rollers help prevent racking during off-center loading and massive high-strength steel fork bars significantly extend component life. Visibility is critical to an operator’s performance and safety. CLARK’s nested upright rails provide positive rail interlock and narrow “column“ to maximize the vision window. The overhead guard safety bars run parallel to the operator’s line of sight. This results in less product damage when picking and pulling loads from rack locations. A clear, unobstructed view also protects your most valuable asset – your employees.
A complete light package and an amber strobe beacon lamp, a multi-function diagnostic dash display with hour meter and battery discharge indicator with lift interrupt is standard. The standard painting is CLARK-green, the operator’s compartement and upright is black.
Great assortement of supplementary equipment is available. It is possible to set up the truck performance to customer’s requirement.
The ramp start feature provides additional torque to eliminate roll back when starting on an incline. EPX-series has an CE-certificate and conforms to european safety standards.
