Drive unit DU22 - Product Information

The patented design of the Visual act drive unit allows the drive wheel to rotate without damage to any floor, including canvas or dance floors.  This in a package that can be built into a wagon with a height of only 200 mm.

Drive units have the capacity to move from 1000 kg to 2500 kg at speeds up to 1 m/s or more.  The capacity of a drive unit is a balance among available current, motor inertia and friction, friction being dependant on the force against the floor and the properties of the wheel material.  We recommend using the Visual act ‘Design Tool’ to calculate the requirements for a wagon for a specific speed and load.

Drive unit DU22

Model number

* Capacity will depend on the pressure of the wheel against the floor, the condition of the floor and the rolling friction of passive wheels or air casters.
