Wireless controlled lifting jacks
For synchronous lifting of several jacks and monitoring and controlling the safety equipment, the jacks must be electrically connected to the control panel. This can be done by cable or by radio connection, i.e. wirelessly. In this case, there are no trip hazards, no cables have to be laid across the tracks and one is much more flexible, since the lifting jack system with up to 28 lifting jacks or partial units of them can be used flexibly on different tracks.
Wireless Master/Slave Units
The master/slave control panel system is usually chosen for larger units, as it is possible to split them thanks to the two control panels. For example, a 16 jack system can be divided into two systems with 8 jacks each and used independently of each other.

Battery powered jacks
For a special project in Russia, Autolift developed battery-powered 8ton jacks. These are used in an area without power supply, so it was easier for the customer to fit the jacks with batteries instead of wiring the area. Only the batteries are moved to another area for recharging. Since the jacks communicate with each other via radio remote control, the system requires no cables at all.
Through this project, Autolift had taken the opportunity to gain experience and build up know-how, which will certainly be of increased use in the future with the rapid development of battery capacities.
Adjusting the lifting arm under load
For the replacement of bogies, we recommend the option “Adjustment of the load support plate under load”. This is used – either manually or motorized, depending on the version – to move the complete car body transversely to the track axis by means of small spindles in the load support and to compensate for any misalignment.
