Types of quick couplers

29 mars 2018


Two families, according to the accessory :


  • Universal couplers : quick couplers that take the accessories by the 2 original pins. Synonyms : adapters, non-dedicated couplers 


 

  • Dedicated quick couplers : quick couplers that take the accessories through a compatible system, specifically designed.
 


 


Three categories, according to the operation :

  • MIXED quick coupler : engagement and locking are ensured from the cabin but the disengagement is executed by human effort on the quick coupler.

 
Engage & locking from the cabManual unlocking


 

  • PILOTED quick coupler : the movements of any element of the engagement and locking system are made by an energy source (ex mechanic, hydraulic, electric).

  • MANUAL quick coupler : the movements of the engagement and locking system are made by human effort on the quick coupler itself.


The design of a quick coupler with engagement from the operator’s station
in combination with a manual safety system (ex. a locking pin)
is prohibited !


NOTE : This prevents unexpected detachment of the accessory due to the non-use of the locking mechanism.
