Handheld Remote Controls for Lifting and Crane applications: Panther Systems

These wireless radio control transmitters for cranes and lifting come in different forms and variations. The smallest one fits inside your pocket but there are larger more robust versions for heavy-duty use. Their stable performance and build will keep you running day-in and day-out. The push-button transmitters are at a minimum of IP65 and most are IP67.

Panther remotes adapt to 95% of all Crane and Lifting applications in the market: Overhead Cranes, Bridge Cranes, Electric Hoists, Gantry Cranes, winches, etc.

Main advantages of Panther remotes

  • You can store up to 8 transmitters in the receiver’s memory.
  • Control two cranes independently or in TANDEM with a single transmitter (each crane must have its own receiver).
  • Control a standard 3 motion, 2-speed single hoist crane or a 3 motion, 2-speed, dual hoist A/B/A+B. Also the possibility to control using a single transmitter two standard cranes (3 motion, 2 speed, single hoist) independently or at the same time.

Transmitters when active send repeated “stay alive pulses” to the receiver, prompting the safety relay(s) to drop if the receiver loses “sight” of the transmitter’s stay alive signal (out of range, dead battery, broken transmitter, etc.).

Panther uses 802.15.4 communication with DSSS, allowing the operation of up to 12 systems in a single frequency. Transmitters feature 16 field programmable frequency channels, ultimately allowing the operation of hundreds of systems, interference-free within proximity.

A further benefit is the ability to replace a lost or damaged transmitter from the ground-up, without the need to access the receiver.

It is possible to get a customized foil or faceplate, useful if you want specific symbols for your functions.
