Forklift Circuit and Wiring Services in Laurel

Fork Lift Circuit and Wiring Services in Laurel tristar electric

TriStar Electric can handle everything related to the installation and wiring of the forklift charger circuit.

Almost all warehouses in Laurel and elsewhere have one piece of equipment in common: the forklift. It is the most universally helpful piece of heavy equipment since warehouses make the most of their floor plan by storing it upwards. Forklifts are often electrically charged, so your commercial building needs a forklift charger. These chargers have such a heavy draw that they require their circuit. If you need to update your forklift chargers or install new ones, TriStar Electric has the skills and experience to help. We can install new dedicated circuits for your forklift chargers so that you don’t have to worry about anything slowing down your warehouse operations. Call TriStar Electric today!

Understanding Forklift Circuits

Forklifts and their related equipment, like side loaders and pallet jacks, have been a warehouse staple for decades. The pallet jack is the most popular and recognizable type of forklift. It is small, compact, and relatively easy to use, allowing you to move pallets of materials in tight spaces. TriStar can also install this type of circuit. This equipment has often been gas-powered, but these days, it is just as likely to see electric forklifts. When you have an electric-powered forklift, you have to have a charger connected to power, and that connection has to be on a dedicated circuit. TriStar Electric can handle everything related to the forklift charger circuit installation and wiring, including running the wiring from the main electric panel to the electric forklift charger, installing the circuit (TriStar Electric can install circuits with three-phase or single-phase wiring), and even installing the forklift charger. 

Avoid Common Forklift Circuit Problems By Hiring TriStar Electric

We have a trusted team of professional electricians who you can count on to solve your commercial electrical issues. We can and will install your new forklift charging circuit correctly without worrying about us making the common mistakes that could happen with less skilled electricians.

  • Open Circuit: Essentially, a broken circuit where the wiring has disconnected at some point (usually due to continual chafing against another object or because of bending wires), connectors have eroded, or switches are faulty.
  • Shorted Circuit: A shorted circuit is when the fuse blows out or a circuit breaker trips because a low-resistance circuit receives too much electrical current.
  • Ground Fault: Grounding electrical circuits connect to the shortest and most efficient path to ground, and typically, one forklift circuit should be grounded, but a second grounded circuit can cause an electrical short.
