NBB said: “It is the ideal standard product for all common bridge cranes with single or two step control.”

The slimline construction of the unit, with two-step push buttons has been patented worldwide “and has proved itself in numerous operational fields,” NBB added.

Ergonomically balanced, multi-function, breast pocket format and minimal weight (approximately 200g without battery), the Planar B2 needs widely available AA cells (1.2V NI-MH battery or 1.5V batteries) facilitating up to 50 hours non-stop operation, without display, and 40 hours with display. A wall mounted automatic charger base unit is available as an optional extra.

The unit is protected to IP 65 and has 67 channels to switch frequency easily as well as channel display or automatic frequency search by the LBT method.

The data feedback display can show battery and signal strength, for example, and further customer specific data feedback on request.
