Allied Motion Technologies introduces electric power steering for material handling

Friday November 09, 2018
November 9, 2018 – Allied Motion Technologies has introduced the electric power steering (EPS) series for steer-by-wire warehouse vehicles, autonomous AGVs and similar material transport vehicles needing a robust electric steering solution.

The EPS series is a compact, fully integrated motor, gearbox, controller and optional output pinion. It is available in three frame sizes and 16 models to cover virtually any electric steering requirement in applications from small pallet lifters to AGVs/AGCs to multi-tonne reach trucks. It includes a customizable mounting flange, output shaft and output gear, and can be used in cold storage environments with temperature down to -35°C.

The EPS series also offers an optional feature – turning wheel absolute position control, which allows the controller to know the absolute position of the turning wheel without the need of external sensors. Combined with Allied’s SWS steering wheel position sensor for manually operated vehicles, the EPS series offers a complete electric steer-by-wire solution for material transport vehicles.
