The continual drive to achieve greater operational efficiencies and safer working environments is supported by technological advancements, which are changing the way we operate lifting equipment for the better.
Newer overhead cranes and hoists now include radio control configuration as either a standard feature or an optional extra. Similarly, older cranes and hoists can be upgraded to have a receiver installed that would facilitate the installation of a radio control system in place of the traditional cabled pendant control option.
