The design of the platform and control unit ensures that the operator always remains within the confines of the truck, which enhances safety while driving and picking. The upward-slanting outer edge helps the driver to avoid missteps, for example when the platform is raised. Additionally, the N20 VLi model features a polycarbonate screen between the platform and lifting mast, protecting the operator against dangerous contact with the lifting mast. When cornering, the truck automatically reduces its speed. The entire platform functions as a deadman's switch. If the operator leaves the platform or presses the emergency stop, the truck will automatically brake at a rate determined by the load.
The low yet broad entry makes access easier for the driver, while also providing sufficient space for picking from the platform. The platform has suspension and dampens vibrations. The multiple compartment areas serve as additional working aids, as do the power-steering and ergonomically designed grips, which allow the driver to reach all of the controls easily. The N20 VLi model can also be equipped with an additional lift, enabling the operator to raise pallets to working height for loading, alleviating back strain.
For effective commissioning processes at different levels, the N20 Vi/VLi trucks are equipped with a driver's platform which can be precisely raised and lowered. The truck can lift and drive simultaneously, allowing the operator to reach the required goods quickly. Lowering the platform is conveniently controlled via a foot switch. Using their 3 kW three-phase motors, the order pickers can reach a top speed of ten kilometers per hour, with or without a load. Both model variants possess an initial lift, allowing them to traverse ramps and uneven surfaces easily.
All of the truck's technical parameters can be read out via CAN bus and then analyzed on a service laptop, where they can be adjusted accordingly. The technician can also access all central components directly simply by removing a service cover to the front. The three-phase technology is protected against dust and moisture, and is therefore maintenance-free. Lateral battery changing can be carried out safely and simply using a roller conveyor.
