J D Neuhaus (JDN), a company known for its air hoists, cranes, trolleys and monorail hoists, has further enhanced their remote control capabilities with the introduction of three remote control models, the RC-X, RC‑S and RC-SP, each comprising of a transmitter and receiver and all can either be integrated in existing JDN solutions or directly combined with a new JDN hoist. One of the many advantages of the new JDN receiver is its rigid and extremely compact design. All components are housed in a space-saving, shock-resistant GRP (glass-reinforced plastic) casing featuring protection class IP65 (dust and water protected). A breathable membrane guides any condensation away from the interior to the exterior. The design also offers seawater-resistance for offshore applications. The radio remote control model RC-X is even suitable for the use in potentially explosive environments rated up to ATEX zone 2/22.
Consideration has also been given to ease-of-installation. Even existing JDN hoists and cranes can be retrofitted thanks to the standardized interface of the JDN RC. The receiver can be mounted directly on the hoist or the trolley, or individually at site. The compact design of the receiver makes it even suitable for hoists with low carrying capacity.
Individual solutions according to specific customer needs are available. Up to 20 hours of use is possible before recharging of the portable transmitter is required.
Perfect for covering long distances between hoist and operator, the JDN RC represents an 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.
