With powerful all-electric performance and exceptional maneuverability, the R5e is the ideal sweeping solution in a range of urban environments.
The RAVO 5 eSeries comes equipped with a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. This battery type has a number of major advantages, such as:
The RAVO R5e gives you three charging options. Type 2 (IEC 62196-2) plugs are standard, and these charge the battery via an internal charger at a maximum rate of 22 kW/h. With this charging method, a full charge takes less than 4.5 hours, after which the machine is fully ready for use again. An advantage of this system is that the machine can also be charged for a shorter period of time without any negative impact on battery life.
Want to have a fully charged battery again in no time? Then you can choose to use the quick charge option. With a CCS Combo 2 (IEC 62196-3) connection, the battery is charged at 50 kW/h via an external charger - fully recharging the battery in your machine in about 2 hours.
There are a plethora of benefits associated with electric vehicles, especially for municipal applications. Local authorities, who commit to serving their communities, benefit greatly from making the switch to electric vehicles – such as sweepers – as they can deliver essential services while also reducing their environmental impact.
As well as helping meet cleansing targets with its outstanding performance profile, the RAVO R5e also offers a wide range of operational advantages, including:
Quiet Driving Experience
Low Maintenance Costs
A big advantage of the R5e is that it recovers energy on its own. When the accelerator pedal is released, the machine automatically brakes slowly and the electric motor functions as an alternator. This generates power that is used to charge the battery. This regenerative braking increases the efficiency of the machine and results in lower running costs.
Electric power means exceptionally low noise levels. At an industry-low 93 dB outside the cabin, the R5e makes early-morning and late-night shifts viable. Inside the cabin, exceptional soundproofing technology means low noise levels for operators, with maximum levels of no more than 61 dB
The RAVO R5e has a very powerful electric motor - with exceptionally high torque - which makes the machine fast, smooth and steady to drive. All this, in combination with its exceptionally quiet cab, makes for a pleasant operational experience.
As the R5e does not operate with a diesel or petrol engine, it does not burn any fossil fuels – meaning there are zero-emissions produced when the machine operates. This is an unrivalled benefit in city centres and built-up areas, meaning that the 5 eSeries’ contribution to the environment is just cleaner streets.
There are minimal moving parts in the R5e, meaning there is relatively little maintenance required. This also keeps the hourly operational running costs low.
