HBP Hybrid Battery-Powered Mobile Lifting System

ARI-HETRA announced the launch of its NEW HBP Hybrid Battery-Powered Mobile Lifting System.

The innovative new lifting system employs Patent-Pending technology with regenerative charging capability that utilizes the weight of a lifted vehicle to recharge its batteries to provide increased cycles between charges resulting in less power consumption. This is accomplished by the electro-mechanical design of the mobile lifting system. To further conserve power, the system is equipped with an automatic shut-off sleep mode feature that will go into power saving mode after one minute of inactivity. The 24V deep-cycle batteries are charged by using a single standard 110V outlet 20 AMP and daisy-chaining the 4 posts. This new hybrid power system will contribute to any business or agency's eligibility for certification under LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System. The lifting system can be used in 2, 4, 6, and 8 post configurations and is ANSI/ALI certified. Each post is identical and no separate power box is needed

The new HBP hybrid lift also has all the features of ARI-HETRA'S flagship AE mobile lifting system which includes an electronic load cell for accurately measuring the lifted weight on each post for overload protection and displaying the lifted weight on the digital readout provided on each post. The lifting height is displayed on the digital readout as well. Another AE feature allows the system to be programmed to control, restrict or adjust the lifting height to accommodate overhead clearance. Additionally, the AE digital display read-out can be programmed for English or Metric units as well as providing electronic service analysis information/service codes. Further, the digital readout also indicates current battery charge levels for operator knowledge. It is estimated that operator can get over 30 cycles at full load capacity between charges.
