JD Neuhaus (JDN) has developed a robust product for controlling hoists and cranes. The JDN-RC receiver is designed for long-lasting performance in rigorous industrial and offshore operating environments, including explosive atmosphere conditions.
Featuring a compact receiver that suits hoists even with low-carrying capacity, all components are accommodated in a shock-resistant casing offering protection class IP65. This means the device is totally protected against the ingress of dust and can withstand low-pressure water jets.
The receiver can be mounted on the hoist, trolley or at a separate location. Its standardised interface means it can be offered as a retrofit solution for JDN’s existing product range, such as Profi air-operated hoists.
At the transmitter, single or two-step commands are supported by control elements that include a key switch, start and stop buttons, joystick, LED operating status display and LED low-voltage indicator. Users can work at a safe distance from the load and take a better viewpoint during operations.
It spans long distances between the hoist and operator, and is designed as an alternative to applications demanding a long control hose. The design also facilitates use in hard-to-access locations, while multiple hoists can be controlled simultaneously.
