The powerful VHF radio transmitter and receiver is
designed for the heavy duty industrial environment of concrete plants. The
transmitter is a battery powered belt holster unit with guarded switches for
safe operation. The water and dust proof receiver can be located on any
convenient surface and has a "rubber ducky" antenna mounted on its waterproof
steel case. It wires directly into the batching control panel.
Four channels are available; these can be programmed to function as four separate demands, each giving its own formula and batch size, or any combination of demands and other functions. Examples are 3 demands and remote mixer discharge control, 2 demands with conveyor raise/lower, 1 demand with conveyor raise/lower and start/stop etc. The applications are as wide as your imagination; if it can be controlled, it can be controlled by radio.
Special frequencies and digital codes are utilized by the radios to ensure complete security; similar radios are used to control cranes where safety is paramount. Two or more transmitter/receivers can be used on the same site if necessary, using different frequencies and codes. Range is 300 yards/metres or more, depending on building structure and contents.
Special systems of up to 16 channels can be provided. Contact us for details.
