Crane remote control
Wireless crane remote control
FORBIX SEMICON wireless crane remote control system works on wireless RF technology. It has 12 buttons on the remote controller. The range of communication is around 100m (in industrial environments). An open line of sight is 150m. The 12 button functionality, is to control the LT, CT, hoist operations. However, custom designs available with additional functions. These are coarse/granular and attendant call. The remote controller operates on 12 volt DC 23A alkaline battery. The backpack contains the battery. The wireless crane control system is a replacement of present wired crane controllers. However, there are other commercial applications as well. The remote controller body is of tough and rigid ABS plastic and is capable to withstand a drop on the floor.
The receiver unit is a combination of 6-12 relay ports. However, each relay withstands a driver capacity of 220VAC at 5 Amps. Further, every potential free contactor relay has its corresponding receiver. The crane motor controller wiring can connect to the relay receiver. The crane remote control system helps in upgrading an existing wired system to wireless. And finally, its seamless and effortless process to migrate to these wireless process.
