Bauma: launching platform for complete system with active antenna
The PUMA industrial remote control series has been developed for hydraulic and industrial mobile applications. PUMA is Tele Radio’s new and feature-rich system that includes transmitter, receiver, integrated software for configuration and monitoring. The system is compatible with all major fieldbus systems.The series exists of base types that can easily be customized to the exact needs of the end user. For example, with the use of a separate active antenna that significantly extends the wireless range. This revolutionary wireless remote control will be announced at Bauma 2019 in Munich.
The Swedish Tele Radio Group has been operating in the market for wireless remote control – safe, smart and strong – for more than sixty years. Based on the knowledge and experience acquired over all these years, the most advanced system so far will be launched in April: PUMA. A highly comprehensive system, designed to meet the strict demands of the mobile industrial and hydraulic sector. The system is independently tested and certified in compliance with industrial standards SIL3, PLd and Category 3.
Type of transmitter
The PUMA transmitters are available in 3 types: T24 (large), T26 (smaller) and later this year the T28 with a large colour display. Under the hood a wide range of possibilities are available, ranging from basic to full-featured versions, with RFID and LED lighting in the handgrips. Every type comes with an unrestricted choice of joysticks, paddles and switches.
All transmitters flexible
A feature of the entire range is the modular set up, enabling fast delivery of fully-customized transmitters. The end user simply specifies the desired functionality and how this should be controlled –customization was never so easy! Advanced software makes it possible to upgrade or modify the systems at any time, even remotely.
Receivers in two flavours
The 3 transmitters can be combined with 2 receivers. The R21 has a standard housing with M12 male or female connection, or a M20 cable gland. The R20 is a plug-in type with a choice of 42-pin plug or 2 x M25 cable gland. Both are compatible with CAN or RS485, and can be expanded with inputs/outputs and relays.Moreover, they are equipped standard with an internal antenna, overload protection, fail-safe and redundant E-stop relay, and Bluetooth communication.
NEW – Active antenna
At the Bauma trade fair, Tele Radio will spotlight the new active antenna that greatly extends the range of the PUMA series. This makes the PUMA series suitable for use in very demanding circumstances, like mining, in mountainous areas, or in big buildings without losing signal.
