New radio remote controls from JD Neuhaus
Company introduces electronic remote controls for safe and convenient control of hoists and cranes
JD Neuhaus (JDN), specialists in pneumatic and hydraulic air hoists, cranes, trolleys and monorail hoists, have further enhanced the remote-control capabilities of their equipment, bringing ease of use and convenience to users across all industries.
Three electronic radio remote-control systems are now available, the RC-X, RC-S and RC-SP, each consisting of a transmitter and receiver. All three can either be integrated in existing JDN solutions or directly combined with a new JDN hoist.
JDN say one of the many advantages of the new receiver is its rigid and compact design, with all components housed in a space-saving, shock-resistant, IP65-rated casing (dust and water protected). The RC-X model is even suitable for use in potentially explosive environments rated up to ATEX zone 2/22.
Consideration has also been given to ease of installation. Existing JDN hoists and cranes can be retrofitted thanks to the standardized interface of the JDN RC, and individual solutions to meet specific customer needs are also available. Up to 20 hours of use is possible before recharging of the portable transmitter is required.
Particularly suitable for covering long distances between hoist and operator, JDN ay the remote controls represent an effective alternative to applications with long control hoses and can also be used in hard-to-reach places and for simultaneous control of multiple hoists.
