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.
The biggest advantage of radio control crane systems and hoists is greater safety because unlike a pendant control which is tethered to the crane system radio controls offer greater freedom for the operator to move around.
Our customer required a radio control system for one of their existing overhead cranes for safer operation and enhanced operational efficiency. When the customer contacted us they had a strong idea of the type of radio control system they were looking for but they were unsure of how feasible it was to retrospectively configure a radio control receiver and transmitter to their existing crane system.Read More
