Our circuit boards are designed in-house, manufactured locally and populated with surface mount components. This reduces the strain placed on the connections on the board by the weight of the components, creating a more robust product with a longer service life.
All of our products are specifically designed with the unique stresses of forklift applications in mind, not adapted from other purposes to suit.
Our enclosures are custom-made from strong, tough and UV-stable ABS plastic, and filled with epoxy resin (or 'potted') once the circuitry is inserted. This seals the unit against water and dust ingress,
and also protects against vibrations and shocks by giving additional support to the components on the board.
Connections, indicator LEDs and any adjustment mechanisms are the only parts left exposed.
The modules we build in-house are subjected to rigorous testing procedures, at all stages of the production process, before being QC marked and placed in stock.
Many products have their own custom-built testing rigs that are designed to accurately simulate the loads, voltages and signals the units would experience on a real forklift.
Where units have a proportional output, the iTEch Control for example, the signals are graphed on an oscilloscope to check they are within the set tolerance.
All of our testing equipment is calibrated regularly to ensure the best possible accuracy.
Our Field Engineers are highly professional and conscientious, taking real pride in their work. All our equipment can be fitted in a variety of positions, with brackets provided
to suit the particular vehicle. Wiring is left tidy, hidden where possible, and swarf is removed to prevent damage to the vehicle.
Once fitting is complete, the equipment will be configured with the customer's preferred settings, and fully tested before our Engineer leaves site. Basic training will also be given to site managers where necessary,
such as how to change time delays or sensitivity.
