The Raymond Corp., Greene, N.Y., introduced the Raymond Model 8250 AC walkie pallet truck powered by lithium-ion technology from Brammo, Talent, Ore. Raymond and Brammo maintain a strategic technology alliance to develop robust lithium-ion alternative energy solutions.
The 8250 is an intelligent truck and pack offering, providing CAN communication that instantaneously sends and receives continuous communication between truck and lithium-ion battery pack, providing operator feedback in the form of fault codes displayed on the truck’s control handle.
An onboard battery management system allows users to schedule charge times, provide notifications when charging is required and monitor charging and usage to prevent over-charging and discharging events. This power pack also includes integrated heaters for superior cold storage needs and thermal controls that reduce the risk of damage caused by environmental extremes. The power pack, branded by Raymond, was designed to handle rugged environments, and is IP65-sealed and maintenance-free. In addition, Raymond’s user interface provides operators a visual of the battery state of charge, as well as additional audible and visual alarms if the battery pack requires attention.
