The crane with wired cable technology
A few years ago most of the cranes were managed by wired remote systems such as crane pendant push button. These wired systems are used to control heavy machines like overhead cranes or hoists. The overhead crane is used at the construction site and industrial sector. The overhead crane travels at a specific distance above the head.
The crane can also be divided into two sections such as static cranes and movable cranes. The static cranes are fixed at some point cannot be moved from one place to another. While movable cranes are those cranes that can be moved from one place to another place easily with the help of movable tires.
In wired technology, the operator has to go inside of the crane to monitor and manage the crane which is risky for the operator. The ground operator can easily move the crane in particular directions like upward, forward, reverse, downward, left, right, and for the hoist. The hoist is attached to the crane which is used for loading and unloading heavy materials.
What is wireless radio remote control:
As time passes the industrial sector and manufacturing industries replace wired technology with the wireless remote system. Through the wireless transmitter the crane and hoist can be controlled easily from a long and safe distance also. And in the wireless system technology the operator doesn’t have to sit inside of the crane.
The overhead cranes or electronic machines can be controlled and manipulated through the artificially generated waves by the wireless remote device. And control mechanism is called radio remote control. The radio remote devices use radio waves technology for sending and receiving the signal.
The manufacturing companies and industrial sector where the crane is mostly used started preferring the wireless radio remote device. This wireless radio remote device not only provides safe transmission of the signal while communicating but is also it is less expensive than wired technology systems. The crane remote device works wirelessly and hence it removes the need for wired systems.
The function of industrial crane remote control system:
As radio remote control is a wireless system and hence it requires two units for communication such as transmitter and receiver. The transmitter device is used to control the crane remotely which is managed by the operator. And the receiver is placed is connected to the overhead crane.
The EOT crane remote control device has many push buttons such as left, right, forward, reverse, start, stop, up, and down. The transmission signal is sent to the receiver when the operator pushes the button on the wireless radio remote device. The receiver has an antenna towards which it receives the signal.
The signal sent by the transmitter device is in an encrypted format and hence the data packet cannot be easily hacked by the outsider. When this data packet reaches the receiver then the receiver first decodes the data packet. In this, the data packet is converted to plain text from cipher text. And this communication process happens between the transmitter and receiver is more than ten times in a second.
When the receiver gets the data successfully then the receiver also transmits the signal back to the transmitter device as an acknowledgment. The transmitter and receiver follow closed-loop communication. Because of this, the transmitter device adjusts the power automatically according to the distance. If the distance is more the device consumes more energy and if the distance is near then it takes less energy.
The hoist crane wireless remote control device observes many things while communicating with the receiver such as the signal quality, the lost packet, the range of a signal, the number of successful transmissions, the transmission gap in the middle of transmitter and receiver, the numbers of error occurred, etc. The hopping frequency technology is used by the wireless radio remote device to avoid unwanted trespass from the outsider.
Why choose wireless remote control for overhead crane:
The crane remote control uses wireless technology for communication. Because of this the there is no need for wired cable systems that result in cost-effectiveness. The main reason for using the wireless radio remote is that it provides safety and security while communicating with the end devices.
The transmitter device can range from ten meters to two hundred meters depending upon the signal quality. The wireless radio remote uses the 2.4 GHz frequency band that is globally used. The transmitter device is coated in such a way that it can be protected from shock and corrosion.
The battery used in the transmitter device is durable and can last a long minimum of half year. The transmitter can send the signal at a low battery even at a long distance also. While communicating if any lag or bugs are found in the system then the transmitter device stops working immediately.
Radio remote control manufacturer:
From the above point, we came to know that the industrial sector has increased widely. Due to this, there is the urgency of industrial goods like crane and their equipment. Anand Systems Engineering Private Limited is the top crane remote control manufacturers in India.
The Anand radio remotes are highly customized and optimized and they are made according to the need. The transmitter device has different types such as push buttons and joysticks radio remote control. The push-button comes in 2 varieties like the eight-button way and twelve button way.
