With the new LUKAS e3 series you will work more efficiently and safely from now on – thanks to a smart dashboard for better control.
For the e³ series we’ve taken all the positive power and performance features of our last generation of cordless rescuers and added a control option. The e³ gives direct feedback to the user while working by means of performance-diagnostic indications on the display dashboard. From now on, our customers know at any time about the power reserves of the tool, at what speed the tool is currently working, how much remaining capacity the battery has and whether the rescue tool is in an opening or closing movement. Is the tool threatening to tilt too much sideways and could this be a safety issue for the user? The user receives this and a variety of other feedback during operation. With the e³ generation of rescue equipment, LUKAS offers an unprecedented level of control with incomparable power.
TURBO – This is activated as soon as the star grip is turned over a defined activation point in the opening or closing direction. What makes the turbo unique on the market is its intelligent mode of operation. As soon as the blades of the cutter, the spreader arms, the combination blades or the claw of the cylinder hit very hard material, the tools reduce the working speed to a level optimized for the user and continue working at normal speed. The automated speed adjustment provides a much higher level of safety and control, exactly when it is needed.
SALTWATER – For use in saltwater, we have developed a special salt water battery (blue variant) that can only be used with e³ tools. If the special salt water battery is inserted, this is recognized by the tool and the ‘salt water’ symbol on the dashboard lights up.
ROLL WARNING – An additional safety feature: lateral twisting of the cutters in use beyond a limit, caused by incorrect application or the unfavourable shape of the material to be cut, can cause the material being cut to press between the blades. This can result in increased lateral force and lead to overlapping or, in rare cases, even breakage of the blades. If the cutters become twisted during the cutting process and this could pose a risk of blade breakage, the LED ring around the start button on the dashboard flashes red and warns the user not to continue the cutting process. The user is warned of any false start and imminent dangerous situation and can take corrective action. The roll warning is activated by a combination of pressure and tilt angle. If the angle of inclination of the cutters, starting from the position when the cutters are applied, exceeds 15° and the cutters are already working in the high-pressure range, the start button lights up red.
CAPACITY – By displaying the battery status on the dashboard, we can no longer be surprised by an empty battery during the cutting process. The display enables us to replace the rescue battery in good time.
POWER – The power indicator gives the user direct feedback on the remaining capacity of the tool. During the cutting or spreading process, the user is informed at all times whether the tool still has residual capacity or whether it has reached its power limit and cannot continue the work step.
TEMPERATURE – The temperature indicator on the dashboard shows the user when the rescue equipment is in danger of overheating during use and the electrical system could be damaged if it continues to be used.
