New Radio Remote Control Transmitter Offers Many Unique Features for Industrial Crane Applications
February 28, 2006, Sharpsville, PA, USA - Cattron Group International has unveiled their newest controller/transmitter, the T34C, for use in industrial crane applications in North and South America. Cattron Group International is a leading global manufacturer of remote control products and professional services for the industrial, mining, commercial mobile and railroad markets.
Innovation and rugged engineering give the T34C a unique shape and style that provide the equipment operator with a controller that is durable and easy to operate. This extremely lightweight 'Belly Box' style controller is ideal for indoor and limited outdoor overhead crane remote control applications in most industrial environments. The T34C can be used with most licensed Cattron AT Series or MP Series receiver/decoder units. It can also be used with most existing Cattron systems as either a replacement or spare controller.
One of the more distinctive features of the T34C is the unique design of its control levers. Machined from aircraft-quality 6061 billet aluminum, the handle for each lever is a different geometric shape making it easier for the operator to distinguish between control levers without looking down. The controller is constructed with advanced microcomputer electronics employing surface mount technology and employs Cattron's standard Self-Diagnostics (lever/switch test with audible tones) that users have come to rely on. The main housing is 5052 aircraft-quality aluminum and incorporates a guard bar which protects the switches against physical damage. Only the highest quality industrial grade and 'mil-spec' switches, field-tested and proven under extreme conditions, are used. T34C controllers can be configured with up to six control levers and customized with additional pushbuttons and toggle switches. The T34C operates with readily available standard AA alkaline or NiMh rechargeable batteries.
