Industrial remote controls switches are developed mainly for industrial applications that require up to twelve radio remote control functions. These pressure sensitive remote control switches provide valuable speed control for all kinds of hydraulic operations. It is included with high and low range selectors that allow for precision movement in tight quarters. Another important feature of this wireless switches is split signal capability. Split signal capability allows combined boom movements like ‘up and sideways’ or ‘extend and winch down’.
In order to make all the boom functions work, you have to squeeze the trigger mounted ‘on’ switch. The weatherproof receiver system can be crane mounted and the receiver interfaces to crane electrical system with OEM style plug-in connector. The handheld transmitter has a normal frequency range of 902-928MH with a normal output transmitting power of 100 MW. It is capable to work with 56 bit DES encryption key transmission method. It is constructed in a rugged polycarbonate enclosure and weighs 1.2lbs. An internal PCB mounted antenna is also there with a normal range up to 2000 feet. External receiver antenna is also available. It can work with a temperature specification on minus 20 F to 185 F.
Normal 12/24 VDC battery is used as a main power supply of the system. The battery has 30 hours of continuous use capacity. Low battery warning signal and LED indicator is also available. The battery can be charged with rechargeable lithium ion 12-24VDC truck charger. 12/24 VDC truck charger is supplied by the manufacturers.
The receiver system of the industrial remote controls witches is an integral part of the whole system. It is constructed in an IP67 rated and impact resistant polycarbonate enclosure and it can be mounted externally on the machine. 12/24VDC power supply is used to control the receiver control unit. Additional 120VAC systems are also available. It can take the current load up to 0 Amps @ 12VDC per channel. An internally equipped antenna is available with these wireless remote control switches. Optional coax and remote mount antenna is also available. This switching system is pre-wired to all OEM requirement and connect plugs are also available.
The industrial wireless remote control switches can work with three programming modes – proportional, latched, and momentary switch. This is actually a low powered intrinsically safe control unit that is mostly used in class I, Div 1, Group D hazardous environments. They are quite popular in engineering fields and are widely used in hydraulic crane operations. They are normally used to get variable speed control in hydraulic pump solenoids.
Wireless radio remote control, be it of any use, is simply follows a way to control distance objects by using a variety of radio signals transmitted by the remote control device. In industrial sectors, by using the modern industrial remotes, you can control numerous mechanical and electronic devices to complete various operations. Industrial switches can offer you more flexibility and productivity due to the course of the above mentioned programs. This is the reason why these industrial remote controls witches are so important.
