With the introduction of the Resqtec battery tools a new era starts for rescue extrication. Electronic Direct Drive (EDD) Technology has eliminated hydraulics; no fluids, pump, valves or seals. It is simply one compact, powerful and efficient motor that drives a screw.
Each component used in a rescue tool requires energy. EDD excludes hydraulic components to significantly reduce efficiency loss and to deliver long run times at full power. Powered by the latest lithium-Ion technology, EDD batteries also conform to IEC 62133 safety standards and UN 38.3 shipping requirements.
Integrated hydraulic rescue tools get force by building up pressure. EDD is direct: it delivers a constant maximum force, which results in great cutting and spreading performance.
Hydraulic systems don’t allow full control over its speed. With a control handle that works like an accelerator, EDD however lets you be in full control Hydraulic systems overheat, whereas EDD is not affected by heat issues. This allows much longer running times, no influence by extreme environments and low maintenance needs.
Hydraulic rescue tools work at high pressures and are carried close to the body. EDD contains no hydraulic fluid, meaning no pressure and compression. Compression of hydraulic fluid creates spring reaction forces. EDD has no such fluid compression, making it the safest choice for rescuers.
