Aerial Lift Battery Care by C-Tech

Thursday, December 27, 2018 11:03:00 AM America/New_York

TECH TIPS

DC Battery Care, Maintenance & Charging

Electric powered scissor lifts are most often 24 volt DC systems using four 6 volt deep cycle batteries, connected in series to give us 24 volts. Batteries also act as part of the counterweight of the machine, so it is very important to install the correct battery. The minimum weight of these batteries is usually around 61 pounds per battery, but always check manufacturer’s parts and/or service manual for proper information.

TECH TIPS

Fall Prevention vs. Fall Protection

 

Fall prevention and fall protection may sound alike but they are completely different.

Fall Prevention is a set of procedures and/or practices that, when put in place, will prevent a worker and/or person(s) from the hazards and dangers of a fall.

Fall Protection is a device that is usually worn by a worker that will protect and/or limit the severity of an injury should that person be involved in a situation that results in a fall.

Diode Testing in AWP Equipment

Thursday, April 26, 2018 9:55:26 AM America/New_York

Tech Tips

Diode Testing


At times, diodes are used as an electric “check valve”, allowing electric current to flow in one direction and not the other. They are also used as a filter for “spike” voltage. Diodes are commonly used on Hydraulic Valve Coils, in Joystick Controllers, in Control Boxes, and more. 

For those of you that have an electrical background, we commonly use the conventional theory (voltage flowing from positive to negative) and not the electron theory (voltage flowing from negative to positive).

Aerial Lift Joystick Inspection

Monday, March 26, 2018 2:18:20 PM America/New_York

Tech Tips

Joystick Inspection

The first step in a joystick inspection is to check your power source. Make sure your batteries are fully charged. For a slab electric scissor lift (24volt), fully charged batteries should read 26.5 to 27.8 volts. You can load test your batteries by hooking up a voltmeter to the batteries and operating the lift function from the lower controls and observe the voltage. If the voltmeter drops to 22 volts or below, you have a battery problem or bad connections on the batteries. Proper voltage is critical so always use a voltmeter, not a test light.
