Dock Leveler Wiring

Warehouses use power for multiple components, both mobile and stationary. In a busy mechanical environment such as a warehouse, large loads are constantly coming into and out of the building. Dock levelers are adjustable platforms that help forklifts, pallet jacks, and other vehicles transport goods from the truck bed to the warehouse. Dock leveler wiring will ensure that these machines have the power they need to operate consistently and contribute to your efficiency. Contact TriStar Electric today to find your best dock leveler wiring technician in Maryland.

Dock Leveler Wiring

About Dock Levelers

Dock levelers are adjustable platforms that create ease of transport between a docked vehicle and the docking bay. They bridge the gap between the docking area and the truck bed. Their most basic construction consists of two hinges, a metal platform known as the deck, and a folding metal plate that rests on the truck bed known as the lip. Three main types of dock levelers are: mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic. The latter two use a remote button to activate them automatically.

Dock levelers are essential for the efficient and safe transport of materials into and out of your warehouse. The dock levelers are moved to match the dock’s height to the truck, so goods and pallets can be unloaded out of the truck and into the warehouse on a smooth surface. Dock leveler wiring involves connecting a dedicated circuit to your new equipment so the devices can run reliably and never malfunction during operation.

About Dock Leveler Wiring

Dock levelers need to connect to the warehouse’s power, which will require mapping out and implementing a circuit layout that is safe, efficient, and meets standard requirements. Because it is a commercial facility, the dock leveler will likely need three-phase power at a high voltage. However, smaller facilities may use dock levelers with single-phase power at a lower voltage, such as 115V, 120V, and 240V. Each dock leveler has multiple electrical components, including a motor, that must connect via a circuit back to the building’s power.
