Key product features:

  • Rugged industrial grade design available in 650kg and 900kg max payloads
  • Industry leading top speed of 2.2 m/sec
  • Easy setup and integration with user production management systems
  • 360° of safety rated sensing across 128 dynamic safety zones with automatic footprint switching
  • Up to 10hrs of operation per charge with ultra-fast 20min charge time (20% to 80%)
