What are the wireless crane control systems?

With the development of related industries, wireless remote control is widely used in cranes. Using remote control operation mode has the characteristics of improving working conditions and convenient operation, especially in some slate production enterprises, wireless remote control operation mode has been widely used. This operation mode avoids the personal accident of the driver caused by the derailment of the crane or the falling of heavy objects. However, the wireless remote controller is different from the traditional cable manual controller in security. So, what is the wireless crane control system? What are the disadvantages? Now, we will give a brief introduction to this, hoping to help you better understand the wireless crane control system.


The main points are as follows:

  • What is a wireless crane control system

  • Advantages of wireless crane control systems

  • Insufficient wireless crane control system

  • Conclusion


What is a wireless crane control system

It is controlled by a wireless remote transmitter with various buttons or control rods. It includes single speed crane control and dual speed crane control . It can be held by the operator or clamped on the safety belt or the belt worn by the operator. When in use, the remote transmitter sends a radio signal to the receiver unit installed on the crane. The unit converts the signal into electrical energy and transmits it to the intermediate relay unit on the crane and activates the appropriate contacts, then moves the crane up and down on the rails, left and right, and then raises or lowers the hook.


Advantages of wireless crane control systems

With the maturity of related technologies, this control system is adopted by more and more manufacturers, so what are its advantages?


(1)  Safety

Since the control system eliminates the dependency of binding it to the crane through cab control or suspension control, the operator can lift, place or reduce the load without approaching the load, so radio control can help them avoid some hazards.


(2)  Improve work efficiency

Operators can not only work safely on the floor, away from danger, but also better grasp the direction of effective lifting. Therefore, in the process of operation, the work efficiency is greatly improved.

(3)  Cost saving

Since this control system only needs one operator to control the crane from the ground, you no longer need a team of two or three staff to operate the crane from the cab and ground to lift, move and lighten the load through hand gestures, thus greatly saving related costs.


(4)  Easy to use

Because the radio control is battery powered, it can not only be used manually, but also be designed as a "belly pocket" type. The operator can clamp it on the belt or tie it on the back belt or shoulder belt, which is more convenient to use.


Insufficient wireless crane control system

So, in our daily work, what are the disadvantages of the system?

(1) The machine used in the control system is a handheld device, so it is more vulnerable to damage. Although it is made of solid plastic and rubber materials, if it falls repeatedly, it will still suffer damage and even affect related functions.


(2) The control devices of the control system are powered by batteries, so the possibility of the batteries running out or not fully charged will be greatly increased when operating the crane. In addition, because these controls used in the system use replaceable or rechargeable batteries, the radio controls need to be checked or replaced frequently, and improper maintenance may affect production.


(3) Since the transmitter of this control system is not on the crane, if the central storage position is not determined in advance, it may be misplaced.



In daily operation, as long as the crane operators are properly trained, wireless crane control will be a good choice for crane and hoist motion safety control.
