INSTALLATION
T
he RICON PF7000 Series Express Ramp has been engineered and designed for custom installations. Installation consists of the mounting of the ramp, installation of the electrical supply and control wiring, controller adjustment, and installation verification. This chapter provides installation guidelines and instructions. If a question arises that is not covered in this chapter, contact the Ricon Product Support Department for assistance.
A.
MECHANICAL INSTALLATION
1. RAMP LOCATION
The location of ramp depends on its path of motion. The ramp must be positioned so it can move unobstructed
through its required range of travel.
2. RAMP INSTALLATION
a. Refer to Figure 2-1. Remove cover strip screws.
b. Refer to Figure 2-1. Remove cover strips.

COVER STRIPS
FIGURE 2-1: REMOVAL OF COVER STRIPS
WARNING!
TAKE EXTREME CARE WHEN POSITIONING RAMP INTO TRAIN. BE SURE TO FOLLOW PROPER
OPERATION AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WHEN USING LIFTING DEVICE.
c.
Refer to Figure 2-2. Install eye bolts (provided in kit #39022) in the locations shown in Figure 2-2. Use
crane or lifting hoist to place ramp into train.
d. Once ramp is properly placed into train, remove eye bolts.
e. Refer to Figure 2-2. Remove access panel.

f.
Refer to Figure 2-3. Rotate timing belt approximately 25-30 times in the direction shown in Figure 2-3
until the tip of the ramp appears approximately 50mm out of the enclosure.
WARNING!
VERIFY THAT THE HINGED FLOOR IS PROPERLY LOCKED IN A RAISED POSITION BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL RAMP. THIS WILL HELP PREVENT INJURY WHILE INSTALLING THE RAMP.
g. Refer to Figure 2-3. Use rod found under hinged floor to support and lock hinged floor in a raised position.
NOTE: Mechanical support of the ramp must be made using six provided attachment points located on three sides of
the ramp. Each attachment point uses two bolts, for a total of 12 bolts, that must be a minimum of 10 mm diameter. Please use mounting hardware provided with the ramp in kit #39021.Please use mounting hardware
provided with the ramp in kit #39021.
WARNING!
DURING RAMP INSTALLATION, BE SURE THERE ARE NO GAPS BETWEEN THE TRAIN’S
RAMP FRAME BRACKET AND THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP ENCLOSURE. IF GAPS EXIST, THE
RAMP WILL DEFORM WHEN MOUNTING BOLTS ARE TIGHTENED. FLEXURE EXCEEDING +/1/25” (1mm) MAY CAUSE UNINTENDED OVER CURRENT CONDITIONS THAT WILL RESULT IN
RAMP MALFUNCTION. RAMP WILL NOT DEPLOY OR STOW AUTOMATICALLY.
h. Check for gaps between the train’s ramp frame bracket and the bottom of the ramp enclosure. Should
there be any gaps, insert spacers as needed (i.e. flat washers, etc.) to assure that the ramp enclosure
does not deform when bolts are tightened.
2-2
i.
Refer to Figure 2-3. Install 4 flat washers, spring washers and mounting bolts at rear end, two on each
side.
j.
Refer to Figure 2-3. Install 4 flat washers, spring washers and mounting bolts at mid section, two on each
side.

Tighten mounting bolts in an alternating pattern in small increments, stepping up to the maximum value of
27 to 33Nm manually using a manual torque wrench. Do not tighten each bolt all at once. A pneumatic or
any automatic device is not recommended.
m. Perform electrical installation before continuing with the following step. For electrical installation, please
refer to the Electrical Installation section of this chapter.
n. Disengage rod under hinged floor and secure underneath with clip. Close hinged floor.
o. Rotate timing belt in opposite direction until the ramp is fully stowed.
p. Install access panel.
q. Install cover strips and hardware.
3. 3. FLUTTER DRAIN VALVE INSTALLATION
The purpose of the flutter valve is to allow fluid to drain out of enclosure, while keeping debris from entering. Flutter valve and hose clamp are provided with ramp in kit #39023.

WARNING!
DO NOT TOUCH OR GO NEAR THE CONTROLLER WHILE IT IS POWERED.
THERE IS A RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK AND/OR BURN INJURY.
♦
Handle the controller with care. Do not throw or drop the controller, as doing so could damage components
inside.
♦
Avoid contact with water. If water or excessive moisture is present, do not install or route the wires.
♦
Avoid areas with excessive dust.
♦
Never modify or dismantle the controller.
♦
Avoid getting any foreign objects in the controller during installation and wire routing.
♦
Install the controller inside a low voltage compartment box that is waterproof and dustproof.
♦
Refer to Figure 2-15. Hold tightly onto the handles that are located on the left and right side of the controller.
♦
Be sure that the orientation of the controller is in the correct direction. The controller should be placed so
the terminal board is on the top.
♦
Install and tighten the M8 bolts on all six locations with a torque value of 13 ~15 Nm.
♦
Avoid interference with train parts and/or avoid touching the protuberance.
♦
Make sure wires or harnesses are protected and secured with cable ties every 18 inches (45cm).
♦
