A new era starts for rescue extrication equipment; Electronic Direct Drive (EDD) Technology direct from the motor to the output force. No need for hydraulic fluids, pump, valves or seals. Simply direct from a compact and powerful efficient motor that drives a screw piston.
Hydraulic systems overheat which can create all kinds of problems. The current integrated tools have little room (small reservoir) needed to cool down the hydraulic fluid in its system. This limits the running time. EDD is not affected by heat issues. It therefore can provide much longer running time. EDD works well in hot and cold environments. Its high durability requires little to no maintenance.
LONG RUNNING TIMES
Each tool is powered by the latest lithium-Ion technology. The battery conforms to the IEC 62133 safety standards and the UN 38.3 shipping requirements for lithium batteries. The motor technology leveraged in EDD produces more than a staggering 1.4kW which is similar to a small gasoline engine currently used in hydraulics pumps. The motor runs close to 90% efficiency and drives a robust screw or in the case of the P4 a robust gearbox. Nothing more is needed.
FULL VARIABLE SPEED
Hydraulic systems do not allow full control over its speed. EDD does; it lets you be in full control of its speed. The control handle works similar to an accelerator; just open it for optimum control.
OPTIMAL SAFETY – NO PRESSURE OR COMPRESSION
EDD contains no hydraulic fluid under pressure nor a pump or seals. A less obvious though important advantage is the lack of compression within the system. Compression of hydraulic fluid creates spring reaction forces. EDD has no such fluid compression. It is the safest choice for rescuers..
A rescue tool must be all-weather proof. The ingenious design and military grade connector with IP66 value and rating makes these new tools most suited to work in heavy rain showers.
DIRECT FORCE FOR INCREAED PERFORMACE
Integrated Hydrawulic rescue tools get force by building up pressure. EDD is direct; it delivers a constant maximum force. The tool’s reaction and response is immediate for great cutting and spreading performance.
