Features

  • *‘Safety Timer’ software available to limit switch closure duration prior to automatic shut-off. This feature requires periodic trigger pulse by operator to maintain receiver ‘on’ condition.
  • Up to four other command functions available per customer requirements.
  • Extremely rugged, modular quick-connect components allow for easy installation and field service. Pre-wired solenoids are available for Electric, Pneumatic, Hydraulic, or other control requirements.

Overview

Developed specifically for LNG transfer applications requiring positive operator contact.  A wireless trigger-switch is used to send RF command signals to the pump and/or tank valves. Operator is unencumbered by cables and wires normally used in ‘deadman’ fueling operations. System incorporates a secure frequency hopping, spread-spectrum radio link that is virtually immune to outside electrical or RF interference. Operations fail safe (shutdown) with any loss of signal from transmitter. Rechargeable transmitter delivers 30hrs of continuous use between charges (12/24VDC charger supplied).
