The construction industry is huge and includes many applications that we can operate efficiently and from a safe distance. Shovels, rock crushers, water pumps, aggregates and concrete factories are a small list of what we can operate wirelessly.
Tele Radio offers all kinds of solutions for the construction industry where safe working is of great importance. We certify our systems to the highest industry standards to ensure everything continues to operate under the toughest conditions. Systems with the highest safety requirements are certified for SIL3, PLd or PLe. To guarantee the highest level of safety, Tele Radio’s products are therefore independently tested by an accredited testing agency. The certificates can always be shown when you request them. As a user, you must be able to rely 100% on the safety of Tele Radio products.
Reliable products are of great importance. A factory that is shut down for half a day due to equipment failure has major consequences. Tele Radio’s systems have a long range and are reliable and safe even under the most extreme conditions.
To give an idea of the possibilities, we have some examples of applications and their typical products below:
A shovel is a machine used in construction or landscaping to move soil or sand. This can be done by shoveling by means of the loading shovel or by pushing the sand to move. Other names for the machine are wheel loader, loading shovel or earth-moving machine. For more view a shovel can be operated from outside the cabine with a transmitter.
An aggregate is a machine that generates energy. Aggregates are often used in places where there is no or insufficient mains power or in places where access to power is so important that a backup must be available. This is because aggregates can operate completely independently of the grid and cable free with a remote control.
A water pump is an electromechanical machine that is used to increase the pressure of water to move it from one point to another. Modern water pumps are used worldwide to supply water for municipal, industrial, agricultural and residential uses and can be operated wirelessly with a radio remote control.
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:
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.
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.
