Guide to Choosing the Right Controller for Your Electric Forklifts

2023-08-22 | Forklift Guides

When selecting the appropriate controller for your electric forklifts, it's crucial to consider several factors that ensure optimal performance and compatibility. Follow these steps to make an informed decision:

  1. Determine Motor Type: Controllers are categorized based on the type of motor they work with. First, identify whether your motor is a DC (series-excited / shunt-excited), permanent magnet, or AC motor. Additionally, discern whether your motor is brushed or brushless. Please note that except for AC motors, our products are equipped with brushed controllers.

  3. Verify Motor Voltage and Power: Confirm the voltage and power specifications of your motor. It's essential to ascertain whether your motor's power is compatible with the selected controller. If you're unsure about compatibility, don't hesitate to contact our customer service for assistance.

  5. Programming Requirements: Our controllers require programming for optimal functionality. Take note that voltage specifications are usually indicated on the controller. It's important to be aware that even though a controller might support a range of voltages, specific programming is required. For instance, if your electric forklift operates on 48V, the controller needs to be programmed accordingly. If you intend to use the controller on a 36V forklift, you must modify the programming to match the 36V voltage before installing it. Furthermore, in the case of AC controllers, providing an electrical schematic is necessary to ensure accurate programming.

Remember that selecting the right controller directly influences the performance and efficiency of your electric forklift. By carefully considering your motor type, voltage, power, and programming requirements, you can make a well-informed choice that aligns with your forklift's specifications.
