Rosenbauer Brings A New Generation Of Roll Containers In The Market With RTE RC Profile
Rosenbauer Brings A New Generation Of Roll Containers In The Market With RTE RC Profile

Everything is new with the Rosenbauer roll containers, the name, the design, the materials, the connection technology, the load capacity, the operating concept, castors and braking system and the possible variations. The containers with the designation RTE RC Profile (Rosenbauer Technical Equipment Roll Container Profile) consist of anodized extruded aluminum profiles that are positively joined and screwed together by special corner connections. This ensures exceptional stability and durability and allows the containers to be loaded with a total weight of up to 700 kg (dead weight: around 50 kg). Single-Bar control The profiles are also chamfered on the sides, making them easier to maneuver in tight spaces and reducing the risk of injury (no annoying outer edges). Even with a load of several hundred kilograms, an RTE RC Profile can be moved effortlessly and safely by one person. On the one hand, this has to do with the new, easy-to-run and particularly robust castors (diameter 200 mm, tread made of polyurethane) and, on the other hand, with the ergonomic, likewise newly developed single-bar control. The orange handle bar only needs to be pushed down slightly with minimal force and without spreading fingers to set a container in motion. If one lets go of it, it automatically folds up, disappears into the body and the RTE RC Profile comes to a standstill quickly and by itself (dead man's brake). Different body designs The new Rosenbauer roll containers can be realized in different size and weight classes and different body designs Depending on the load weight, the new Rosenbauer roll cages can be equipped with two (up to 450 kg) or four (up to 700 kg) braked castors. The braking system (cone or drum brakes) is protected and integrated into the base plate, rollers and brakes are attached so that they do not protrude beyond the base plate and interfere with maneuvering. Optionally, the front and rear rollers can be straightened using the handle bar side (straight-line positioning device). The new Rosenbauer roll containers can be realized in different size and weight classes and different body designs. Depending on the transport purpose, they are available in a plateau and frame design, with cover plate, shelves, mesh walls and numerous other accessories such as forklift runners, crane eyes or a towing eye for loading with a cable winch. Compressed air cylinders On request, they can also be equipped with LED lighting, which consists of floor washlights on the one hand and LED strips integrated into the profiles on the other. In addition to completely custom-made containers and freely selectable equipment variants for standard models, Rosenbauer also offers complete solutions for certain purposes: for example the RTE RC ‘suction point’ profile with portable pump, suction hoses and accessories, the RTE RC ‘grid box’ profile, the RTE RC ‘hose’ profile, the RTE RC profile’ breathing air cylinders’ for up to 24 compressed air cylinders or the RTE RC profile’ water damage’ with submersible pumps and associated equipment, to name just a few of the numerous variants. Reliable locking mechanism The new Rosenbauer roll containers are TÜV-tested and have a standard loading area of ​​1,200 x 800 mm (EU pallet dimensions). Special dimensions are also possible. The containers are secured in the vehicle using a rail system with a simple and reliable locking mechanism (clamping lever, suitable for airline rails), which can be installed not only in fire brigade vehicles but also in any logistics vehicle with a loading area. This means that the RTE RC profiles are also suitable for other applications and emergency organizations. Versatile, ergonomic, powerful, the new Rosenbauer roll containers combine everything that is important in use.

Rosenbauer Launches A New Logistics Vehicle Volvo FL Electric With 200 KWh Battery Capacity

Brand new and trend-setting - the new logistics vehicle from Rosenbauer combines a highly flexible body concept with a new, innovative electric chassis. It is the first fire engine on a fully electrically powered series chassis, the Volvo FL Electric. The FL series came onto the market in 1985, is now being built in the third generation and in the version up to 16 t gross vehicle weight it is mainly used in local distribution traffic. The chassis has also been available with an electric drive since last year and Rosenbauer is the first fire service outfitter in the world to be able to implement an emergency vehicle on it. Compact electric motor The drive train of the new logistics vehicle consists of a compact electric motor and a 2-speed gearbox, the first gear of which allows starting with maximum torque (425 Nm) even on steep terrain. The output of the electric motor is 165 kW (continuous output) and reaches a peak of up to 200 kW. The motor also acts as a generator, converting the kinetic energy that is normally lost when braking into electrical energy and feeding it back to the traction batteries. The output of the electric motor is 165 kW (continuous output) and reaches a peak of up to 200 kW Up to six 600 V batteries (lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt accumulators) with a capacity of 50 kWh each can be installed in the chassis and provide a range of around 300 km. They are charged either via the on-board chargers with alternating current or at external direct current charging stations. Aluminum sandwich panels The Rosenbauer logistics vehicle has four batteries on board, which provide enough energy for an average logistics operation with arrival and departure, incident lighting (flashing lights, ambient lighting, LED interior lighting) as well as the electrical supply of radios, laptops, hand lamps, chargers, etc. The vehicle has a Rosenbauer CAN bus system, the entire lighting, the reversing camera and the rear microphone can be switched via a 10” display built into the center console of the driver's cab. Sockets are installed both in the driver's cab and in several places in the body. The fire-fighting structure consists of three parts, a workshop room with a work surface, two equipment rooms and a spacious logistics or loading area. The lightweight structure is made of aluminum sandwich panels with reinforcing inserts and is 2.1 meters high (interior light) and can be walked upright over the entire length. Flexible construction concept The workshop room is accessed via a door with an extendable staircase on the right-hand side of the vehicle. The equipment compartments are closed with roller shutters, the equipment deep compartments with flaps which, when open, serve as step flaps. The complete range of the Rosenbauer COMFORT modular system with pull-outs, drawers, revolving compartments, etc. is available for safe storage and optimized removal of the equipment held in the equipment rooms. There is space for up to six roll containers in the rear cargo area of ​​the fully electrically operated vehicle Two shelves are installed in the logistics room and four standard roll containers are transported, which are secured with a lock using a special rail system. Loading and unloading take place via a tail lift with a load capacity of 1,500 kg. There is space for up to six roll containers in the rear cargo area of ​​the fully electrically operated vehicle, which due to the flexible construction concept can be manufactured not only in the present configuration but also with a different room layout and equipment. Anodized aluminum profiles Depending on the requirements of the fire brigade, a wide variety of logistics concepts can be implemented and, for example, equipment trolleys, as standardized in Germany, can be implemented. Just like the vehicle itself, the roll containers (RTE RC profiles) are a completely new development from Rosenbauer. They consist of a robust and stable frame construction made of anodized aluminum profiles connected with corner connectors and can be loaded up to a total weight of 700 kg. Depending on the transport purpose, they are available in a plateau and frame design, with cover plate and shelves, other accessories (forklift runners, crane eyes, towing eyes, straight-line stop, LED lighting) and two or four braked swivel castors. Fully assembled functional units It is operated using a single handle bar that only needs to be pushed down slightly to move the container. If one lets go of the handle again, the brakes are automatically activated and the container stops (dead man's brake). It is operated using a single handle bar that only needs to be pushed down slightly to move the container Basically, the roll cages can be loaded individually, but they are also available in fully assembled functional units: mesh box, suction point (with portable pump, suction hoses and accessories), power / light (with power generator, distributor and LED floodlights), fire fighting (for pressure hoses, jet pipes and powder extinguisher) or water damage (with submersible pumps and associated equipment), to name just a few of the numerous variants. Fire-Fighting equipment Roll containers and fire-fighting equipment are combined to form an overall system with unimagined variability, which is ideally suited to supplying logistical locations. In addition, for the first time there is a fully electric drive with sufficient power and high availability (simple motor, few moving parts, longer service intervals), which has no emissions and is almost noiseless - when idling, the FL Electric is almost 40 dB (Quieter than a Volvo FL with a diesel engine) - can be operated. With this vehicle, the environment and the health of the emergency services can be protected in equal measure. Rosenbauer is once again showing how the latest technologies can be meaningfully integrated into the everyday fire service of the future.

Rosenbauer Discusses The Evolution Of Their Famous Rosenbauer AT Vehicle
Rosenbauer Discusses The Evolution Of Their Famous Rosenbauer AT Vehicle

An essential constant in the AT success story is continuous change. The AT concept has been and will be continuously developed. Resourceful technicians, sales staff, buyers and other employees adapt the concept to market requirements and integrate technological progress in the AT. The sales figures prove this steadfast strategy of continuous change right: By 2020, almost 6,000 AT had been produced all over the world. The 3rd AT generation is currently available. The starting shot for this further development of the AT2 was given in 2007. At the Interschutz 2010, the result of the new development work was proudly presented to the public. The technological refinements and the design caused a stir again. The 3rd generation came up trumps with 90 innovations that offer customers even more security and functionality than previous generations. The increasing market acceptance of the AT made investments in molding tools profitable. Countless detailed solutions Thanks to these new possibilities, the construction concept could be improved again and the weight reduced. For the first time, it was possible to install water tanks with a volume of up to 7,500 liters. Countless detailed solutions contribute to an optimal use of space. A profile system that can be moved with millimeter precision was used to attach shelves, transverse walls and the like. All parts in the crew room and in the equipment rooms that are designed to be "touchable" are standard in orange A one-hand unlocking system was developed for the 3rd generation, which enables the equipment to be removed quickly and safely. A consistent color concept also supports the team in the intuitive operation of the vehicle. All parts in the crew room and in the equipment rooms that are designed to be "touchable" are standard in orange. The AT3 is also a great space saver. Thanks to a new docking system for the superstructure to the driver's cab, more space could be created in the crew room. better lighting conditions The integrated double cabin is also completely glare-free using indirect lighting. The seats offer lateral support and can be equipped with 2-point, 3-point or split seat belts and belt tensioners. The AT3 is optionally equipped with rollover side airbags. The glass doors of the crew cabin create better lighting conditions in the cabin and provide a view of obstacles next to the vehicle before getting out. Once at the scene, the driver only presses a button and the vehicle is secured. Depending on the programming, the emergency button automatically switches off the speed cameras and the secondary horn, the surrounding lighting, the hazard warning lights and the traffic control system. The extinguishing technology of the AT3 "thinks for you". A so-called “central water axis” takes over the logical distribution of the water to where it is needed: to the water tank, to the pump or to both at the same time. extinguishing water tank Regardless of whether dirty water is sucked out of the pond, fed from a portable pump or from a hydrant: the water supply can always be connected to the central water axis in a user-friendly manner. This convenient solution applies wherever no free tank inlet is legally required. However, it would not be AT if Rosenbauer had not also developed a unique, innovative solution for this requirement, with which the customer had the optimal solution within the framework of the legal regulations. There are differently sized displays, different keypads and a rotary knob operation The AT3 has a suitable built-in pump for every need. All pumps can be equipped with a Rosenbauer FIXMIX premixer. Also, Druckzumischsysteme such as DIGIMATIC are available for installation in the AT3 available. The central water axis, the pumps, the admixing systems and the extinguishing water tank form an integrated, coordinated system that is optimized for efficiency. The control technology did not stop at further development either. rotary knob operation The Rosenbauer LCS 2.0 (Logic Control System) is based on CAN bus technology, has a modular structure and allows even complex processes to be clearly and clearly displayed or controlled safely. There are differently sized displays, different keypads and a rotary knob operation. Another innovation that Rosenbauer first implemented in the AT3 is the traffic control device that can be integrated in the rear and that can be used to automatically set the traffic cones. The AT3 relies fully on LED technology, which is used in practically the entire vehicle. Large flat beam LEDs are used to illuminate the surroundings. Powerful LED broad spotlights serve as headlights. The equipment rooms are illuminated by means of LED strips and the crew room is illuminated by means of indirect LED lighting. The AT is designed in such a way that it can be manufactured very efficiently in large quantities using line assembly. latest industrial standards AT production in Luckenwalde has already started with the AT2 and continued with its successor In addition, this type of industrial production makes it possible to guarantee Rosenbauer quality standards. The AT3 is manufactured at two locations: both at the Rosenbauer corporate headquarters in Leonding and at the German location in Luckenwalde. AT production in Luckenwalde has already started with the AT2 and continued with its successor. In 2014, the Austrian production in Leonding moved from Plant I to the new Plant II and has since made use of the possibilities of line production according to the latest industrial standards. The AT is strongly represented in its core markets of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but is also sold worldwide in the export markets. AT vehicles are now in use in 44 countries around the world. The AT is definitely not a discontinued model. The constant further developments will not stop in 2020 either. sensible technologies True to the motto “evolution instead of revolution”, the concept integrates proven, sensible technologies and confidently meets the current needs of the markets, the trends of society and the requirements of the legislature. The change progresses steadily and constantly.
