FAQ

Operation & Application Options


For which vehicles is the Modul E-Drive suitable?
The Modul E-Drive is generally suitable for all semi-trailers. However, please note that the vehicles must have an electrical power supply of 24 V and  must be fused with at least 15 A A (minimum section of 2.5mm” required).
Is it possible to lift loads with the electrical drive?
Height differences must be compensated using the air suspension of the vehicle or by means of the crank in low gear. The drive itself is not suitable for lifting loads.
If the Modul E-Drive is based on the Modul B series, why can the Modul B not be retrofitted?
The tried-and-tested Modul B components were further developed and specifically tailored to the motor. Every Modul E-Drive unit is tested in combination with the landing gear and drive, ensuring an optimum efficiency for the entire operating temperature range of -20°C to +85°C.
What happens if the motor stops running?
If the motor stops running, the option of manually cranking the landing gear still exists. For further information, please refer to section 9 of the Installation and Operating Instructions.
I would like to mount the Modul E-Drive on a drawbar trailer. Can I only purchase and use the engine landing gear from JOST?
There is no reason not to use the landing gear individually. In this case, the landing gear should be moved in momentary-contact operation (refer to Installation and Operating Instructions section 7.3 for more details). The reason for this is that the automatic operating mode could elevate the trailer too far and thus can tense it in the automatic operating mode. Please note that emergency operation using the manual crank is then no longer possible.

Installation


How is power supplied to the Modul E-Drive?
The power supply must be provided by a battery (24 V) and be protected with at least 15 A (minimum section of 2.5mm” required). A connection can be made between the truck and trailer using spiral cables if the battery cannot be connected to the trailer. JOST recommends connection via the 15-pole connector (pin 4 + pin 9) in accordance with ISO 12098.
Which installation effort is to be expected?
The installation effort is mechanically comparable to that of a serial landing gear since the electric drive is pre-assembled. A sufficient power supply must be made available on the trailer.
Can I install the control elements on the vehicle individually?
Two taster consoles with a 4-meter long cable are included in the scope of delivery, allowing for a flexible order of the control element on the vehicle.
