Mitsubishi adds AC power.
The new FB20-35K PAC bears a close resemblance to the company existing 4 wheel electric range. But with the addition of AC technology, the PAC is smoother, quieter. more efficient and more powerful than conventional models. Suited to both indoor and outdoor use, and available in capacities from 2.0 to 3.5 tonnes, it is the ideal truck for situations in which the strength and speed of an IC engine are needed but emissions or noise are not acceptable.
Many of the advantages of an AC motor over its DC counterpart are achieved by eliminating both commutator and brushes. The benefits include lower maintenance, the option of sealing against dust and water, quieter and smoother operation, and greatly improved energy efficiency. The new range also delivers greater torque, even at high speeds. This results in better speed, acceleration, ramp performance and lifting capabilities.
AC motors also strengthen a truck's regenerative braking, allowing energy to be recycled more efficiently, and minimizing the need to use the truck's mechanical brakes. The resulting control and safety is supplemented in the PAC by a controlled rollback feature.
Because the drive motor is enclosed, the truck will operate in many hostile environments, while service intervals have been extended to 500 hours.
