Cattron said its LRC-M1 wireless control system provides, ‘the next level of safety and reliability for demanding industrial applications’.

The LRC-M1 can control up to four motions with two ergonomic, multi axis joystick controllers. The trolley/hoist selector, two auxiliary push buttons and toggles are mounted on an impact resistant Lexan EXL housing.

EOT cranes currently using remote controls can easily be standardised to the LRC-M1 system, Cattron said. In addition, as part of Cattron’s new CattronControl product series, the LRC-M1 wireless system uses the company’s external TransKey RFID configuration for efficient operation, allowing facilities to minimise spares and transfer keys to other controllers. This increases safety and flexibility, and streamlines workflows.

Cattron will exhibit at NA 2010 on booth 1937.
