Hoist, crane radio remote control

Company has expanded remote control capabilities for its line of cranes, trolleys and air or monorail hoists. The RC-S, RC-SP and RC-X models have a transmitter and receiver; each can be integrated with existing equipment or combined with a new JDN hoist.

The RC-S, RC-SP and RC-X radio control remote control transmitters and receiver support safe and convenient hoist and crane control.

The receivers afford rigid and compact design, and can be mounted directly on the hoist or the trolley, or individually at a site. The portable transmitters can run up to 20 hours before recharging. All components are housed in a space-saving, shock-resistant, glass-reinforced plastic casing featuring dust and water protection. A breathable membrane guides any condensation away from the interior to the exterior.

Well suited to long distances between hoist and operator, the JDN RC represents a sensitive alternative to applications with long control hoses. In addition, it can be used in hard-to-reach places and for simultaneous control of multiple hoists. JD Neuhaus L.P., Sparks, Md.; 888/638-4287; www.jdngroup.com
