Remotus – Safety critical applications
Remotus is the name of our family of robust radio controlled products for safety-critical industrial applications. Several of the products in this range are safety classed as PL d., Cat 3, EN ISO 13849-1. The waist transmitters have dual CPUs, which means superior safety, even with movements/functions. They have an active stop function, which means the receiver will stop in less than 100 ms. Transmitters with displays can show function data and system alarms. Remotus is ordinarily used for cranes, vehicles, machinery, harbour equipment and other equipment with high safety requirements. The system can control multiple cranes from one transmitter or several transmitters can control one crane, i.e. tandem operation.
Remotus can also be tailored to the customer’s specific needs.
Remotus – For non-safety critical applications
The Sesam family is used for controlling applications such as doors and gates, fans, lights and other non-safety-critical functions. The Sesam family offers different sizes of pushbutton transmitters, from small on/off varieties to large ones that can control up to a thousand different receivers, which is practical for facilities with many doors, for example. The receivers are available for wall or DIN mounting, and we also offer a model for mounting on machinery or wagons in demanding environments. There is also a software solution for easy configuration of large-scale facilities, which is practical when installing many transmitters and receivers that often need to be managed.Go to the Sesam family of products
Access_Ctrl – Access management and production data log
To limit accidents and injuries in the workplace, it is extremely important for the employer to control who can use the equipment and in what way. The most common cause of accidents is mismanagement of equipment and untrained personnel having access to the application. With Access_Ctrl, we can help you reduce these problems through managed access to the remote control with an optional RFID tag. As an administrator, you can then easily control when and how the equipment may be used with our system. You have access to logs that show how the equipment was used and by whom as well as any unauthorized login attempts. All easily accessed via a web interface.Go to Access_Ctrl
