Esense | Built-in systems

Add electric drive support to any mobile product.

Esense is an accessory for heavy mobile care products. It offers intuitive electric drive support for forwards, backwards and sideways driving.

Esense systems are available with two different drives; Fixed or 360. The Fixed version provides electric drive support in forwards and backwards direction. The 360 version adds sideways drive to this, making it most suitable for situations where maneuvering in small spaces is required. Esense Fixed and 360 systems are available in three variations from basic to complete.

Esense Basic

The most cost effective configurations. Suitable for integration inside mobile products during production. These configurations include a Driveunit, controller box, user interface, sensor handles and interconnecting cables. The system is to be powered by the trolleys own 24V or 36V battery.

Esense Power

Equal functionality to Esense Basic, but including a 24V 9Ah battery and waterproof charger. Suitable for integration inside mobile products during production.

Esense Box

In addition to Power versions, the battery and controller box of Box configurations are housed in a water resistant enclosure. These systems are well suited for installation on the outside of mobile products, including products already in use.

Esense systems can be monitored and tuned to custom performance with PowerTalk service software.  Add accessory parts to further enhance your esense system. Available parts include a wheel lift mechanism, a disconnectable charger and safety switches to temporarily switch off drive functionality.
