Depot Charger (Video)
Schunk's latest automatic charging device enables vehicles of different heights to be docked in the depot in seconds. In addition, overnight charging in the depot has the advantage that there is no need for fast and large amounts of electricity to flow along the track in the shortest possible time. The devices can also be made simpler, lighter and more compact - and are therefore particularly economical.
Depot charging with automated charging device has a whole range of advantages:
- The vehicles can park under the system with some tolerance. An automatic signal provides the connection to the charging device. Compared to the plug-in solution, no additional personnel is required.
- The charging process is implemented using the top-down principle. The charging device contacts the counterpart station on the vehicle side. The buses can park close together, so that less parking space is required.
- The Depot Charger offers an efficient overnight charging alternative. Depending on the charging cycles, the systems have a service life of ten to fifteen years, making them significantly more durable than plug-in solutions.
