quadrix Ex: High-Quality Handheld Radio Control Now Certified According to NEC 500 / 505

Press release date: April 18, 2014

The renowned quadrix Ex handheld transmitter by HBC-radiomatic, one of the world's leading suppliers of radio remote controls for cranes and machinery, is now certified according to NEC 500 / 505. This compact, intrinsically safe product is approved for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D hazardous locations as well as Class I, Zone 0, Group IIB hazardous locations in North America. Also certified according to ATEX for the use in Ex zones 1, 2, 21, 22 as well as Underground in Europe, quadrix Ex is ideal for the most demanding oil and gas applications across the globe that require the highest level of safety.

The quadrix Ex's ergonomic and light weight design allows for easy and comfortable handling over long periods of time. Additionally, its comprehensive safety features and configuration options allows for a wide range of possible applications in the lifting and conveying industry.

As standard, this transmitter comes equipped with 8 two-step push-buttons and 2 powerful rechargeable NiMH batteries, allowing up to 12 hours of continuous operation. Additionally, radiomatic iLOG is incorporated into the quadrix Ex transmitter. This easily accessible electronic key allows for the quick activation of a backup transmitter in the event the primary unit is damaged. This is accomplished without the trouble or safety risks involved with field programmers or internal chips. This quick activation also allows the operator to continue working without downtime, saving time and money.

quadrix Ex is available with a whole range of HBC Smart Options – such as radiomatic report. This innovative option allows for only authorized personnel to operate the remote and can simultaneously collect detailed operational data of the radio control.

Another useful feature is LED feedback. Depending on the configuration of the control, the operator can be informed about errors and warnings such as an impending crane overload. For additional operator safety in specific working situations, quadrix Ex is available with radiomatic shock-off and radiomatic zero-g. These intelligent safety features can automatically deactivate the system if the control is dropped, thrown, or takes an impact, preventing the unintended activation of crane or machine functions.

Further useful functions are the trolley pre-selection for cranes with two trolleys as well as the tandem operation of two cranes. With these functions, the operator can safely and comfortably transport exceptionally long or bulky loads over long distances.
