CentraAir ® SERIES
Air Powered Leveler
An automotive grade air bellows system pulling
air from an existing air supply or a dedicated air
compressor lifts dock leveler.
CentraAir® dock levelers can be manually
activated via a lanyard control located at the
back of the leveler.
Dependable lip extension via unique lip latch
mechanism is fully yeildable if impacted by
backing trailer.
OPERATION
The CentraAir® (CA) Series Leveler is available with either “push button”
activation or lanyard control. With either system, the activation of the CA
leveler is simple. The dock attendant either pushes and holds the raise
button or pulls and holds the lanyard at the rear of ramp, unit will raise and
lip will extend. Releasing either the raise button or lanyard will permit the
leveler to float down to the bed of the truck. Operable range is 12” above
and 12” below dock level. Standard lip is 16”. The platform is designed to
service out of level trailers with up to 4” of flex and remains flush with dock
floor. Platform is allowed to automatically float up and down with trailer
movement.
ELECTRICAL
The CentraAir ® (CA) Series Dock Leveler operates off existing plant air
regulated at approximately 90 psi or off a dedicated compressor.
Activation of the unit is either push button or lanyard control. Lanyard
control is located at the back of the leveler, similar to a mechanical
unit and requires no electrical to the individual unit, making it a ideal
for electrically starved areas or explosion proof applications. The “push
button” option utilizes a 115V circuit to power an extremely low amp (.073
amp) solenoid which activates the system. Both push button and lanyard
models incorporate a 5 ft³ industrial automotive grade bellows system,
which exhausts air through a cartridge valve located in the pit. Please
note: Unless specifically noted on quotation, all electrical installation
requirements are the responsibility of others.
