$7,565.00
SKU
ATC-24
Industrial forklift battery changer with one 24" (762 mm) wide forklift battery compartment and is mounted to and powered by your pallet truck.

The BHS Automatic Transfer Carriage (ATC-24) is a cost-effective industrial forklift battery changer/extractor. The ATC-24 mounts easily to your pallet truck and is powered by your pallet truck, which allows for lower system cost by utilizing existing equipment. It has one 24" (762 mm) wide forklift battery compartment. Standard industrial components are utilized in the design allowing for local parts availability while simple center mounted controls allow for easy operation from left, right or rear of the extractor. Ten compartment rollers are standard for better wear and load distribution. The push-pull extraction on the ATC-24 is hydraulic powered.

Notes: BHS recommends that high-speed travel be disabled on pallet truck and maximum speed set at turtle or lowest setting.

1. Verify capacity of pallet truck being used at the specified load center (minimum 34” with 38” battery). Load center increases by 0.5” (12.7 mm) for every inch of battery over 38” (965 mm) in length. Certain options may affect load capacity. Consult factory.

2. Minimum battery width for 10” (254 mm) diameter vacuum is 11.5” (292 mm). Minimum battery width for 12” (305 mm) diameter vacuum is 13.75” (350 mm).

3. Consult factory for additional options.

4. Weight does not include options. Add 80 lb (36 kg) for magnet extraction.

14” Cantilever & 6” Extension Bed (ATC-CAN-14-6)
14” (356 mm) additional extractor arm reach is ideal for use with outriggers, and 6” (152 mm) bed extension accommodates longer batteries
14” Cantilever & 8” Extension Bed (ATC-CAN-14-8)
14” (356 mm) additional extractor arm reach is ideal for use with outriggers, and 8” (203 mm) bed extension accommodates longer batteries

Servicing Roller Heights Outside Standard ATC Range

Uncoated Rollers (ATC-UNCTD)
Reduces roller height by 0.25” (6 mm) to accommodate low battery compartments Note: Available on ATC-24 model only
Two Tier Roller Compartment (ATC-2TIER)*
Combines two roller compartment levels in one unit, and is ideal for a combination of narrow aisle trucks and counter-balance trucks
Two Tier Poly Roller & SST Shaft (ATC-2TIER-PR)
Converts the standard upper roller/shaft combination to solid poly rollers with 0.5” (13 mm) SST Shafts
Drop-In Rollers (ATC-DIR)*
Increases roller height up to 10” (254 mm) to reach battery compartments beyond pallet truck maximum lift, and includes the DIR Centering Angle and DIR Retainer Plate Note: Recommended when ATC-2TIER is not feasible and extraction from multiple battery compartment heights is required
Drop-In Roller Friction Strips (ATC-DIR-FS)*
Increases roller height up to 10” (254 mm) to reach battery compartments beyond pallet truck maximum lift, and friction strips provide additional battery stability during transport (for use with standard bed length)
Drop-In Roller, Extended (ATC-DIR-LG)*
Increases roller height up to 10” (254 mm) to reach battery compartments beyond pallet truck maximum lift, and is for use with 6” (152 mm) or 8” (203 mm) bed extension
Drop-In Roller, Extended with Friction Strips (ATC-DIR-LG-FS)*
Increases roller height up to 10” (254 mm) to reach battery compartments beyond pallet truck maximum lift, and friction strips provide additional battery stability during transport (for use with 6” or 8” Extension Bed)
Base Elevation (ATC-BSELV)*
Elevates ATC base up to 10” (254 mm)
Low Profile-Bolt-In Slide (ATC-LP)*
Cost-effective ATC bolt-in slide option allows roller height to be adjusted 0.5” (13 mm) lower than standard unit
Low Profile Design (ATC-LPF)*
Allows lowered roller height of 5.5” (140 mm) with or without FP-C option

Added Convenience

Magnet Light Indicator (ATC-MLI)
Illuminates when magnet is on, providing a secondary indicator to the audible alarm
Electric Quick Disconnect (ATC-QDY)
Dual SB-175 gray connector harness plugs into the pallet truck and battery, allowing ATC and pallet truck to be powered simultaneously
Friction Strips (ATC-FS)*
Provide additional battery stability during transport
Chain Guard Rubber Flap Kit (ATC-RGD)
Covers chains and sprockets to prevent dirt and debris from accumulating on or around chains and sprockets
Extra Service Capacity (ATC-ESC)
Increases ATC load capacity by 1,000 lb (454 kg) and also extends the life of the ATC in harsher environments (includes increased side rail support, front rail reinforcement, front overhead cross bar, and heavy-duty, high-torque, low-speed extractor arm drive motor)
Self-Contained Battery and Charger (ATC-BATT), (ATC-CHGR)
The ATC-BATT and ATC-CHGR allow the ATC to operate independently from lift truck, and the self-contained charger used in conjunction with self-contained battery provides a convenient and complete battery changing system
Remote Control (ATC-RMT)*
6’ (1.83 m) cord enables ATC control from operator’s position on fork lift
Heavy-Duty Extraction (ATC-HD)
High torque hydraulic motor is recommended for applications using slide strips

Options for Mounting the ATC to the Host Truck

Fork Pocket/QDY/Tongue Kit (ATC-FP-C-24/30, ATC-FP-C-36/42)
Designed for applications where a pallet truck can’t be dedicated full time to the battery changing process. Includes a welded Tongue Kit to enhance stability and an SB quick disconnect (ATC-QDY). Rear-entry fork pockets are designed for use with pallet truck.
Three-Way Fork Pocket/QDY (ATC-FP-3-24/30, ATC-FP-3-36/42)†
Designed for multi-purpose and multi-position and for applications where a pallet truck can’t be dedicated full time to the battery changing process. Includes a welded Tongue Kit to enhance stability and an SB quick disconnect (ATC-QDY). Rear-entry fork pockets are designed for use with pallet truck. Side-entry fork pockets are designed for use with SDCB lift trucks.
Three-Way Fork Pocket (ATC-FP-3)†
Designed for multi-purpose and multi-position. Side-entry fork pockets are designed for use with SDCB lift trucks, typically as a back-up to Operator Aboard Battery Extractors when combined with the Remote Control (ATC-RMT) and Vacuum Extraction (ATC-VAC) options. Rear-entry fork pockets can also be used with a pallet truck host truck when the bolt-on Tongue Kit is attached.
Permanent Mounting (ATC-MPJ)*
Factory welding to customer-supplied pallet truck
Bolt-On Mounting (ATC-BLTON)
Semi-permanent mounting solution when the host truck is occasionally required for other tasks
* Consult Factory for this Option
† 24 V dc must be supplied from the host truck for powering the ATC (may require special taps and cable from SDCB battery), or optional on-board battery and charger packages are available if required.
