It is now known to everyone that a registration requirement applies to mobile excavators from 1 January 2021. This applies to both mobile diesel excavators and electric excavators . In addition to the registration requirement for electric excavators, there will also be new regulations, including the R100.02, which can be divided into two parts;
In this way, the machine is tested for safety for both the driver and the mechanic. The focus here is to prevent the operator or mechanic from being exposed to electrical voltage. In addition, the battery is tested to see if it is safe. The battery is tested under various conditions to rule out adverse side effects and to ensure that no dangerous situations can arise.
In order to get the electric excavators fully R100 certified, several points are being looked at.
All the above points contribute to our machines being safe. In this way we want to prevent the driver or mechanic from coming into contact with high voltage, which is of course life-threatening. In the Netherlands we are one of the frontrunners in the field of safety measures. This creates a safe working environment and hopefully we can set an example for other countries.
