INGENUITY – the Hercules advantage
Unlike other makes of stairclimber, during descending, the body of the Hercules PS does not move until the stopper wheels of the lifting unit have reached the next lower step. This gives both passenger and operator a much more confident feeling on the stairs.
Technical Data Applying to all models
Climbing speed: three speeds can be selected on the control cluster:
- I = 10 steps per minute
- II = 14 steps per minute
- III = 18 steps per minute
Maximum step height:
205 to 230 mm (the maximum is achieved by tilting the stairclimber at a steeper angle)
Voltage and capacity: 24 VDC 5.2 Ah
Protection against overlanding:
- Mechanical overload protection (sliding hub)
- Electronic overload protection
Range per recharge:
This depends a lot on the weight of passengers and whether they are travelling up or down. However, between 300 and 500 steps can be specified as a rough guide. If the stairclimber is in constant use, (e.g. professional mobility services) then a replacement battery pack can be fitted at any time. A mobile charger is also available to rapidly charge the battery pack during the car journey.
Non-marking grey tyres for extremely smooth operation. PS-Outdoor wheels have a diameter of 260mm. All other models have a diameter of 200mm (outer track width 297mm).
Also feature non-marking grey tyres and are permanently braked. Diameter 80mm.
Two up & down switches
Ideal for both left-handed and right-handed operators.
Ergonomic handle unit
Red = Stop (cannot be switched on)
Green = OK
Intuitive control layout
Lightweight modular design
Rugged braking system
Robust automatic step brake wheels stop the Hercules PS reliably on the edge of the step. The wear-free brake lining inside the main wheel provides a secure hold for immediate braking.
