Genie's DC units could be perfect choices for optimal suitability in industrial work locations, particularly when zero-emissions and low noise are required. Genie bi-energy, hybrid systems are available for applications where the equipment are needed to drive long-distances. These models combine the best of both worlds, making use of the positives of a 48V DC machinery and the flexibility of diesel-powered generators.
To charge the DC battery and to offer the operator with long battery life between charges, Genie DC models have systems on-board. There is also a 30 amp universal smart charger system used to charge between shifts or overnight. The smart charger system will automatically convert to the AC voltage frequency and input. In order to save unnecessary power usage that will cost your business this charging system would automatically shut down once the battery pack has reached full charge. Genie DC units provide proportional drive and lift controls that help the operator to use accurate and smooth movements and regulate the speed of each function. This ensures precise positioning with every lift. On non-jib units, the self-levelling platform rotates to 90 degrees in either direction. For jib units, the jib can rotate 80 in either direction as well as 135 five degrees to 139 vertically, depending on the model used. Working heights vary from 12.52 meters to 15.94 meters, which depends on the unit. Genie DC lifts are stable when rotating the turntable in confined areas. Due to lack of tailswing, repositioning of the lift whilst the turntable is rotating is not required. Over and up reach on these types of machinery is great for working in small spaces and the compact unit size is ideal for when lighter weight machinery are needed.
For long-lasting, all-day performance for tough jobs, Genie equipment are easily maneuverable and quick with no tailswing and the smooth ride of pneumatic tires. Air-filled and non-marking foam tires help to increase the benefits within industrial environment.
