New Aftermarket Traction Control System solves Maintenance, Safety, and Tire Replacement Cost issues for companies frustrated with their operators spinning tires on their forklifts. Spinning tires is a Safety Issue due to potential loss of control and the damage that may occur; a Maintenance Issue as Drive Train Components can be damaged due to operators shifting directions without first stopping; and Tire Wear Issue as the tire life is greatly reduced due to premature tire wear from the spinning of tires. This Traction Control System can be installed on ANY forklift and will provide for a Cost Effective Maintenance and Safety forklift solution. TRACTION CONTROL
Traction Control gives you all the features of the standard Speed Sensitive Shifting unit plus traction control. Traction Control prevents the drive tires from free spinning when a forklift operates on slick surfaces such as ice, oil, water, dust and ash covered surfaces. The system further limits tire spinning when the inching pedal is dumped at high engine RPMs. FEATURES include:
o User programmable settings
o Shift light (Optional)
o Plug-n-Play installation
o Direct interface to Vehicle APPS Sensor
- Adaptability on older model trucks
o Utilizes existing vehicle speed sensor
- if sensor is inductive or NPN style
o Engine braking (Optional)
o Auxiliary Switch Lockout PROGRAMMING KIT
The programmer is available for purchase or rental. The programmer comes with all necessary cables and software. This provides an intuitive user interface where programming parameters can be stored to and retrieved from Disk. Programming parameters can also be printed on paper. PROGRAM MABLE VALUES
o Shift speeds - GO/NO GO shift speeds
o Shift delays - time between when all shift parameters are "GO" to when transmission shifts
o Throttle control option - transmission will not shift when engine RPM is above set limits
o Throttle delays - allows mass of engine to return to idle before shifting
o Engine braking (Optional) - when shifting above accepted set travel speed, vehicle stays in gear (of current travel direction) and automatically reduces engine speed to selected settings (slightly above idle) thus using engine assisted braking to help slow truck.
o Auxiliary Switch Lockout - automatically defaults transmission in Neutral when operator vacates driver's seat with engine running and transmission engaged or the inching pedal is depressed for an extended period of time..
