Nissan is starting to roll out a range of warehouse trucks with the launch of a new series of pedestrian / stand-on pallet transporters. Key benefits of the high performance Nissan PLP are its extreme traction and stability.
With lift capacities of 2.0 and 2.5 tonnes, the Nissan PLP is designed for medium to long-distance applications, while a unique system ensures that all wheels are in constant contact with the ground. This system for enhanced stability makes the transporter particularly suitable for use in goods in and out operations, with dock levellers and on slopes and uneven surfaces. A compact double load wheel permits easy access to closed pallets and better positioning between pallet boards.
Performance characteristics of the Nissan PLP can be programmed through the tiller to an on-board computer according to operator experience or the load to be transported. Operator access is also PIN controlled for security and accountability.
Power is supplied to the new model by an energy-efficient 24 volt AC motor, with regenerative braking returning current to the battery for greater uptime. The battery itself is housed on an integral roller bed for faster and easier changing, while forks that rise independently of the battery box extend cycle times even further.
Operator ergonomics have played an important part in the design characteristics of the Nissan pallet transporter. A spring-loaded flip down driver platform to absorb shocks during long distance travel and folding side protection bars are all standard. Power steering is also standard on the heavy duty 2.5 tonne model and an option on the 2.0 tonne version.
Light, fingertip controls are major features of the PLP's tiller arm, which also incorporates a backlit LCD screen carrying information about battery status, hours worked and numerous diagnostic alerts.
A further function of the PLP's on-board computer is to permit remote monitoring through a mobile phone which relays operational data to a control centre. Re-programming of the truck's performance can then be carried out via the link to obtain maximum uptime and keep the need and expense of maintenance and repair visits to a minimum. Nissan.
