AC electric utility vehicles maintain torque with speed
New this spring, Wesley AC electric utility vehicles now give customers a choice between AC and DC power for their material handling applications. DC vehicles can lose torque as speed increases, but AC vehicles maintain their power across the entire speed range, even on inclines. The high-efficiency motors are said to be virtually maintenance-free because there are no brushes to replace or carbon dust to eradicate, which translates into less downtime and minimal maintenance. In addition, the vehicles operate longer between battery charges. Environmentally friendly AC electric utility vehicles are ideal for warehouses, distribution centers, sports arenas and other applications where zero emissions and green operation make them safe for people and the environment.
