Remote Control for Cranes and Lifting Applications

Precise and safe steering for crane and lifting technology is key. With our wide variation of transmitters, we offer you the best possible operation, from a safe distance, with no limitations of cables and with highest precision.

For the safety of your employees, your staff must be able to rely on the fact that their equipment can be operated as intended under all conditions. That is why Tele Radio is your perfect partner for remote controls. Whether you operate your lifting and hoisting equipment with the smallest transmitter that fits inside your pocket or the largest, robust waistband version for heavy duty use.

With our transmitters you can operate your equipment from a safe distance with great accuracy and without hindrances of cables or the obstruction of the view. Our components are robust, durable and dust and waterproof. We offer a stable signal between the transmitter and your machine, regardless the circumstances. We offer transmitters with various safety levels which are all independently verified. Our products come with a lot of flexibility for easy installation. You can even replace lost or damaged transmitters from the ground-up, without need to access the receiver. Due to Tele Radio, the safety of your employees is always guaranteed.


To give an idea of the possibilities, we have some examples of applications and their typical products below:


Tower cranes without an operators cab exclusively use remote control and Tele Radio can supply several solutions for the control. A benefit of using remote controls from Tele Radio is that we supply PLd and PLe certified systems which is a requirement in many countries when lifting loads that pass over people.


The typical hoist is a chain lifting device for lighter loads, ranging up to around 5000 kg, typically used for stationary workstation lifting. By using a remote control the user can avoid working to close to the load and in a more favorable position ergonomically.


Electrical overhead traversing cranes are large loading beams running on tracks in the roof of a warehouse. These cranes lift loads from a few tons to 100 metric tons or more.

Your preferences regarding safety and functionality

The choice of the right transmitter for your application is best made in consultation with Tele Radio employees. We supply different transmitters with specific properties. The following three things are essential for your choice:

Safety level

Our transmitters are safe, with many types having independent safety certification. This means that the correct functioning of the safety button has been tested and verified by an external, independent party. It is recommended to choose a system with an independent safety certification if you want to minimize the risk of injury when using machinery. No security risk? Then you can choose a transmitter without certification. 

Buttons or joysticks

With the use of buttons, a transmitter is more manageable, but certainly not less precise in its control. For example, a transmitter with proportional pushbuttons resembles the precision of a joystick transmitter. By further pressing the button, the degree of actuation increases. A joystick transmitter is larger but offers more options for customization in the form of special buttons, switches, and paddles, for example.

Feedback information

Certain transmitters can receive information back from a controlled receiver. Depending on the system, the information is visible utilizing LEDs on the transmitter or via a display. For example, when controlling a crane, it is possible to use the display to show information like the lifting weight or warning signs. This function will be less relevant for less complicated tasks like truck winches.
