Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPERATION OF COLLAPSIBLE MULTI-SHELF CARTS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR LE FONCTIONNEMENT DE CHARIOTS À ÉTAGÈRES MULTIPLES PLIABLES
Abstract
(EN)
A multi-shelf storage apparatus for storage of articles, comprising a wheeled base; a frame disposed on the wheeled base; a plurality of vertically-spaced shelves on the frame for providing a storage area for articles, each shelf configured to move vertically. The apparatus includes a lift mechanism disposed on the frame, coupled to the shelves, and configured to cause collapse and extension of the shelves in a vertical direction. The apparatus has an actuator on the frame operable to drive the lift mechanism, and a power interface on the frame and electrically connected to the actuator. The apparatus has a mechanical connection for connecting to a towing device and a first power interface integral to the mechanical connection such that the actuator can receive electrical power from the towing device. Systems comprising one or more of the apparatuses and methods for loading/unloading articles utilizing the apparatuses are also disclosed.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil de stockage à étagères multiples pour le stockage d'articles, comprenant une base à roues ; un cadre disposé sur la base à roues ; une pluralité d'étagères espacées verticalement sur le cadre pour fournir une zone de stockage pour les articles, chaque étagère étant conçue pour se déplacer verticalement. L'appareil comprend un mécanisme de levage disposé sur le cadre, accouplé aux étagères et conçu pour occasionner le pliage et l'extension des étagères dans une direction verticale. L'appareil comprend un actionneur sur le cadre permettant d'entraîner le mécanisme de levage, et une interface de puissance sur le cadre et connectée électriquement à l'actionneur. L'appareil possède un raccord mécanique pour se raccorder à un dispositif de remorquage et une première interface de puissance intégrée au raccord mécanique de telle sorte que l'actionneur peut recevoir de l'énergie électrique en provenance du dispositif de remorquage. L'invention concerne également des systèmes comprenant un ou plusieurs des appareils et des procédés pour charger/décharger des articles à l'aide des appareils.
