Basic characteristics

  • Optimised transport routes
  • Short payback period
  • Utilisation of existing routes
  • Compact design

The ERC 215a is an Automated Guided Vehicle based on our standard series truck. It combines advanced engineering with precision navigation technology and safety components. This ensures a high level of reliability and safety.

The ERC 215a can be used in mixed operations mode with manual trucks and pedestrians. Whether to be integrated into existing factory structures or a new build – the ERC 215a is the perfect choice for increasing the efficiency of your transport processes. The compact design as well as the high lift height of the ERC 215a expand its broad range of applications.

Navigation of our automated guided vehicle systems (AGV) is via laser navigation, so no floor work is required. To do this, reflectors are attached to suitable objects along the travel route such as racking, columns and walls or natural landmarks are used.
The AGV system can easily be integrated into the existing IT and software landscape. Our award-winning Jungheinrich Logistics Interface facilitates a smooth connection with host system, such as the Jungheinrich WMS or other available WMS/ERP systems.

However, the AGV system in the form of the ERC 215a can also be used as a stand-alone system, i.e. as an autonomous system without a host connection.

The modular system structure makes it possible to represent individual customer processes as well as reacting flexibly and quickly to process changes. This creates a solid basis for the use of the AGV system according to your specific requirements.

Advantages in detail

Established standard truck used as basis

The basis of the ERC 215a is formed by an electric pedestrian pallet truck, a tried and tested standard truck combined with appropriate safety technology as well as automation and navigation components. The simple manual operation is also performed via the standard controls of the production truck. In addition to the reliability and efficiency, the ERC 215a also possesses other advantages of the standard truck:

  • 2.8 kW, 3-phase AC drive motor.
  • Automatically controlled high-performance lift motor giving energy efficient lifting and lowering.
  • Sturdy design with 8-mm steel frame and enclosed frame contours.
Safety system

The ERC 215a is equipped with a personal protection scanner in the drive direction as standard. In line with the speed of the truck, this sensor scans the travel route in front of the AGV for obstacles. Should an obstacle be located in the path of the truck, the automated guided vehicle system (AGV) will reliably come to a halt in front of it. In addition, the sensor also scans ahead for obstacles when cornering. The standard safety system is completed with side sensors – for safeguarding the sides of the truck – as well as emergency disconnects on the truck.

Simple integration into existing systems

The automated guided vehicle system (AGV) can easily be integrated into your existing IT and network landscape. Use of the existing WLAN structure is preferable for the communication of the ERC 215a. If an existing host system, such as the Jungheinrich WMS or another WMS/ERP system is to be used, the automated guided vehicle system can be connected to this system via the Logistics Interface.

Everything at a glance – with the AGV control panel

The graphic visualisation on the AGV control panel, displays all the information relating to the AGV in use:

  • Quick overview of the status of the AGV system.
  • Prioritised orders can be entered and processed in the corresponding order.
  • Depending on the project-specific requirements, individual customer functions can be specially implemented and activated for the respective system.
Precise navigation

High degree of precision allows for pinpoint accuracy in the positioning of trucks and loads at defined stations.
If necessary, different navigation types can be used as hybrid navigation for the ERC 215a, as with the other AGV models. These are designed and specified according to project and environment.

Numerous additional system enhancements

Various optional equipment is available for the EKS 215a on a project-specific basis:

  • Charging contact plates on the AGV for automatic battery charging.
  • Floor spot.
  • Barcode scanner.
  • Personal protection system in load direction.
  • Obstacle detection scanner.
Lithium-ion technology
  • High degree of availability thanks to extremely short charging times.
  • No battery exchange required.
  • Cost savings due to longer service life and low maintenance compared with lead-acid batteries.
  • No charging rooms and ventilation required as there is no build up of gas.
  • Longer service life with 5-year Jungheinrich guarantee.
