SANTA FE SPRINGS, CALIF. (August 1, 2007) – Maxon is pleased to announce the launch of its newly evolved wheelchair lift, the WL7 Smart Lift. The latest model features advanced technology, a simple and efficient design, and the high quality that today’s market demands.
The WL7 Smart Lift’s advanced technology incorporates solid-state relays which eliminate the need for motor solenoids, and the lift uses passive digital inputs instead of wires and mechanical limit switches. The exclusive, intelligent Brain Box includes status indicators for numerous safety functions. It also monitors voltage and current draw, and warns of improper grounding. Since the diagnostic screen is included on the Brain Box, the use of a computer or scanner is not required to perform diagnostics.
The WL7 Smart Lift easily lifts 800 lbs, is universal to fit all floor heights from 0” to 48”, and has no timing switches. The lift’s pump and motor assembly draws the platform tight every five minutes while the bus engine is on, and the auto-pressurization feature prevents rattling while in transit.
The WL7 Smart Lift is shipped as a complete unit. Its efficient design allows for the ease of installation requiring only a single lead to and from the Interlock and a power and ground cable. The only adjustment required at installation is the platform pitch. Built from a clean slate to be FMVSS 403 (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) compliant, and with options to meet state requirements, the WL7 Smart Lift is the best choice for all your wheelchair needs.
Maxon Lift Corp. was founded in 1957. For fifty years, Maxon Lift Corp. has initiated and developed a variety of innovative products that have become truck equipment industry benchmarks. Under its growing Mobility Division, Maxon produces the WL7 Smart Lift, which is a commercial FMVSS 403 compliant wheelchair lift designed to meet the needs of the transit industry.
