Title (EN) APPARATUS, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS FOR OPERATING AND MAINTAINING ELECTRICALLY-POWERED MATERIAL-TRANSPORT VEHICLES
(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS PERMETTANT DE FAIRE FONCTIONNER ET DE MAINTENIR DES VÉHICULES DE TRANSPORT DE MATÉRIAUX À ALIMENTATION ÉLECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) There is provided an electrically-powered material-transport vehicle having a vehicle-charging contact on one side of the vehicle, and a second vehicle-charging contact on the opposite side of the vehicle. The vehicle has a load-bearing cap that covers the top of the vehicle, and a cap elevator for raising and lowering the cap. The cap can be raised and lowered to a transit position, a payload-engagement position, a charging position, and a maintenance position. In the transit position and payload-engagement position, the cap covers the vehicle-charging contacts so that they are not exposed. In the charging position, the cap is raised so that the vehicle-charging contacts are exposed. The vehicle can enter a charging-dock with the cap in the charging position in order to recharge the vehicle's battery.
(FR) L'invention concerne un véhicule de transport de matériaux à alimentation électrique ayant un contact de charge de véhicule sur un côté du véhicule, et un deuxième contact de charge de véhicule sur le côté opposé du véhicule. Le véhicule a un couvercle de support de charge qui recouvre la partie supérieure du véhicule, et un élévateur de couvercle pour lever et abaisser le couvercle. Le couvercle peut être soulevé et abaissé jusque sur une position de transit, une position de mise en prise de charge utile, une position de charge et une position de maintenance. Dans la position de transit et la position de mise en prise de charge utile, le couvercle recouvre les contacts de charge de véhicule de telle sorte qu'ils ne sont pas exposés. Dans la position de charge, le couvercle est soulevé de telle sorte que les contacts de charge de véhicule sont exposés. Le véhicule peut entrer dans une station de charge avec le couvercle dans la position de charge à des fins de recharge de la batterie du véhicule.
