Radio Remote Controls – Keeping Your Finger on the Pulse

Radio remote controls make machine operation safer, efficient and more economical. These high-quality transmitters and receivers control some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated machines, including:

  • tunnel borers,
  • construction cranes,
  • push back tractors for planes,
  • truck mounted cranes,
  • water jet cutting equipment, and
  • major mining infrastructure machines.

Radio remote controls as a safety solution has been a great improvement in reducing high risk interaction but it comes with its own pain points.

Some of the pain points include:

  • dealing with warranty issues as the OEMs are mostly offshore;
  • compatibility issues;
  • limited product support; 
  • ability to find the rights parts; and
  • ensuring that you use the right cables and antenna’s.
