MARINE & OFFSHORE
We help the marine sector
Tele Radio provides solutions to all areas of the marine sector. Whether you own a small private craft or a large ship we have something for you. When it comes to boat or a ship, on the rivers and deltas or out to sea there are a lot of different applications and it is very hard to cover them all but a few examples of what we provide solutions for are: gantry cranes, gangways, lights, anchors, winches, trim props and many more. As with many other areas, a remote control solution will put you right were you need to be and not anchored to where the control panel is located. Sometimes having to stay in the operators cabin could mean that you don’t have the best view of the action which can cause accidents or hamper productivity.
To give an idea of the possibilities, we have some examples of applications and their typical products below:
Electrically controlled gangways for boats and crafts is a common application that benefits greatly of remote control. Conveniently raise or lower the gangway from the docks, right when you need it.
For a ship, having the ability to turn on and off lights as you maneuver through the ship is easily accomplished with remote control. If you have a bigger ship the staff can have their own remotes making it easier for them to attend the needs of the guests.
Hazardous material dredges and cleaning dredges with hydraulics components need special remote control systems that can handle valve controls. An area that is well served by Tele Radio. A list of control points could be excavation equipment, stabilizing pontoons, auger cutters or other crane types.
Your wishes 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 no 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.
