The HAPP 12 is optimised for low frequency users as it uses electronic solenoids to operate the safety latch, making the installation and operation simpler as it does not require any compressed air connection to operate. Most users of scissor lifts prefer this option.

The HAPP 12A is optimised for high frequency users as it uses air solenoids which can be used repeatedly without change in operation. The air solenoids require a compressed air supply to be available at all times when lowering as safety latch is held out by the air solenoid during lowering.
