The main purpose of using a forklift is to lift and move heavy loads. Our drive executes this purpose in an efficient manner. In a forklift, raising and lowering of load is done by hydraulic lifting system based on the movement of lift handle. To perform this, our drive provides speed and torque control for an extensive range of loads. It can control the hydraulic system of the forklift and monitor motor parameters to indicate faults if occurred. The speed control comes in a vast speed range enabling driver to implement lifting operation at various speeds. For moving hefty loads, our drive offers maximum torque at the lowest speed. Therefore, our drive can be implemented even for high power applications like construction sites, where heavy building materials are transferred across rough terrains. It can also be employed for medium power applications like warehouses, where goods are transferred within limited space across levelled floors.
