(gg) The requirements increase for the safe control of machines. Especially heavy loads have to be lifted, moved and maneuvered precisely.
But even in critical situations, a driverless driving is possible with a radio remote control. From a safe distance, the vehicle or machine can be controlled from a second control station and immediately stopped in an emergency.
Baden-Wuerttemberg manufacturer NBB Controls + Components GmbH fully demonstrates its strengths in the construction of radio remote controls. With over 40 years he develops security-relevant systems for the professional sector.
Whether push button or joystick variant. The replaceable battery system ensures continuous work without interruptions - especially on extreme terrain.
The data feedback on the display provides all customer-specific information, so that
the operator always keeps an overview. Different fieldbus systems are supported for the data transfer.
The advantages of wireless technology are therefore obvious. Radio remote controls also lower the operating costs, increase security and streamline operations.
Especially in adverse environmental conditions, a radio remote control must be resistant to dust, heat, moisture or liquids, so that there is no failure of the machines. In addition to a high degree of protection like a glass fiber reinforced plastic core or a rubber coated case the electronics in the housing is protected. In case of a fall or punch on the radio remote control, a sturdy housing protects the interior from the outside. A quick change of push buttons or joysticks without opening the case without taking protective measures against contamination - this is guaranteed by the patented SMJ technology from NBB.
In mining or tunneling, for example, but also in the energy sector, in areas with explosive substances and dusts particularly high demands are placed on the control technology. If a radio remote control is used in this area, it must fulfill basic safety requirements, which are given by the ATEX / IECEx protection certificate.
