EH5000AC-3 AC drive dump truck with high controllability
Our Dump Trucks employ an alternating current (AC) drive system that operates a wheel motor with electric power obtained by running a generator through the engine.
Through the Advanced Vehicle Stabilization Controls Technologies jointly developed with Hitachi, Ltd., drive instructions are sent independently to the left and right wheel motors based on the conditions of the road surface to stabilize vehicle behavior while in operation and help the operator drive in a stable manner.
Dump trucks that have achieved this high-quality control become a key foundation for AHS.
We are pursuing development of AHS with the aim of taking the EH AC-3 series already in operation around the world and having them retrofittable with AHS specifications.
