Your choice between three different modes:
TM: Trailer Mode
The trailer mode is the most common way to work with modular platform trailers in on-road and off-road applications. One or more trucks pull or push the trailer by means of a drawbar system or a gooseneck.
In drawbar mode, the trailer can be assembled in a 2-file configuration, or even side-by-side in a in a 3-file (1+1/2) or 4-file (1+1) configuration. The trailer mode allows travel speeds of up to 80 km/h. Therefore, it is the most suitable solution for long transport distances.
AP: Assist-Propelled Mode
The assist-propelled mode system is a highly efficient drive system that is used both on-road and off-road. For on-road transport, the wheel motors provide a high driving force on demand and can thus replace additional tractors. Thus, if necessary, tractive force peaks can be bridged when starting off or when driving uphill.
From a certain speed the drive axles switch to a freewheel mode and can be pulled at up to 80 km/h. If the speed drops, the axles switch on again automatically if desired. Furthermore, this drive concept can be used completely without a tractor and a vehicle can thus be moved in self-propelled mode. The necessary energy is also supplied by a Power Pack Unit.
SP: Self-Propelled Mode
Application for in-plant and off-road transports; mechanically or electronically steered modular vehicle combinations. The drive axles are then supplied by Power Pack Units and generate driving forces that can move loads of several thousands of tons. The entire control of the vehicle is done by a single remote control. All vehicle combinations from 2-file, 3-file and 4-file up to open compound vehicle groups are possible with this drive concept.
Mechanical steering system
Every modular bogie has at least one integrated hydraulic steering system. The customer can choose between standard- or counter-steering. The steering is controlled either by a gooseneck or by a drawbar.
The freely accessible steering rods provide for easy and safe adaptation of steering angles. Remote steering by wireless or remote control is part of the basic configuration.
Compared to knuckle steered axles, the driving height on pendle-axles has no impact on the axle track.
Available for TM: Trailer Mode, AP: Assist-Propelled Mode, SP: Self-Propelled Mode
Electronic steering system
The ModulMAX modules can also be provided with an electronically controlled steering system with a steering angle up to +/- 140°. The steering motors are operated by proportional solenoid valves and directly managed from the central system.
The corresponding position of the suspension units is continuously verified by an encoder with respect to the steering joystick position. It is possible to select several steering modes.
In this way, it is very simple to work in tight areas.
