JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and telehandlers, elevates the access industry once again with its now available all-electric DaVinci AE1932 scissor lift.To get more news about DC100, you can visit davincimotor.com official website.
Featuring zero hydraulics to help eliminate job site leaks and zero emissions to help control job site pollution, this 19-ft (5.79 m) scissor lift is purpose-built for applications where stringent environmental regulations must be met.Every component on the DaVinci scissor is fully optimized, including the control, lift, drive and steering systems, to reduce the machine’s energy consumption by up to 70% as compared to a traditional scissor lift. This reduced energy consumption allows for the use of a single, lithium-ion battery.
“The DaVinci AE1932 scissor lift represents the next generation of electrification,” says Shashank Bhatia, senior director of engineering for MEWPs at JLG. “While there is no shortage of battery-powered or electric scissor lifts on the market today, these other models continue to include hydraulic cylinders for actuation, which require hydraulic oil for operation, leaving the possibility open for messy leaks on sensitive job sites. JLG continues to push the envelope in innovation around the entire construction ecosystem, from our rental partners to job sites. This new JLG all-electric machine unlocks new possibilities and applications where these types of machines could not be used in the past due to concerns surrounding leaks.”
DaVinci lifts use a distributed architecture where each system (lift, drive and steer) is connected independently, helping reduce voltage drops and latency, while enabling the control system on the scissor to connect and communicate directly with each system.
Because the control system is fully connected to the entire machine, the DaVinci scissor can transmit data back to operators, fleet managers and service technicians via Bluetooth and cellular networks. This sets the stage for new features like the DaVinciGo app. This app provides real-time machine health and battery status information and the ability for service technicians to perform remote diagnostics and push over-the-air software updates.
The drive system on the all-electric DaVinci lift has permanent magnets which generate torque and create motion to spin the motor. It is estimated that permanent magnet performance can increase the efficiency of a motor by up to 20-30% on average. Motors with permanent magnets have a long life and require zero serviceability.
For smooth operation, the independent controllers of the DaVinci lift’s steering system are designed to help reduce tire scrubbing on job sites, which helps control tire wear and limits damage to sensitive flooring.
The AE1932’s intuitive steering system allows DaVinci lift operators to easily maneuver the machine into and around, narrow-access and space-restricted areas to get work done where it’s needed.
