Crane Service Truck Electric or Hydraulic Radio Remote Controls

Radio remote controlled Service Cranes greatly increase job site safety by providing the operator the safest vantage point for tank delivery. One-man control eliminates a second person instructing the operator where to position the tank. Operator has freedom of movement around entire worksite while setting tank precisely into position.

  • Handheld transmitters are available with up to 12 crane control buttons as specified by customer
  • Rechargeable transmitter delivers 30 hrs of continuous use between charges (charger supplied)
  • Optional 'Enable' button requires two deliberate steps before signal is sent (Enable plus command signal)

Overview

Model # ASKR

Developed for crane and service truck applications requiring up to 12 control functions. Modular components allow for easy installation with custom wire harness supplied. Transmitter and receiver units operate with unique 32 bit ID codes eliminating accidental operation. Parts replacement is simplified with quick connect plugs and simple 'learn' button to link handheld and receiver. System includes model ASKR rechargeable transmitter housed in rugged polycarbonate enclosure. Transmitter has low battery warning indicator with audible alarm and 30hr continuous transmission battery, 12/24VDC charger included. Transmitter button text printed to customer specifications at time of order.

Model # FHSR

Developed for crane applications requiring interference-free, fail-safe machine control. Up to 12 wireless commands via BASE Engineering’s proprietary ‘Safe-Link’ communication protocol. Operator handheld and machine mounted transceiver continuously communicate to ensure signal validity and strength. Any loss of signal results in all active functions automatically shutting down and failing safe. System incorporates a secure frequency-hopping, spread-spectrum radio link that greatly reduces outside electrical or RF interference.

Model # DSST

Developed for proportional hydraulic crane applications requiring up to 12 radio remote control functions. Toggle switch controls with trigger provides variable speed control of hydraulic pump solenoids. Split signal capability allows combined boom movements including ‘up and sideways’ and ‘extend and winch down’. Toggle switch controls must be activated first before trigger switch and speed control will work. Weatherproof receiver can be crane mounted and interfaces easily to crane electrical system with OEM style plug-in connector.

Model # ASKW

Allows up to 8 control functions. Two ‘AA’ batteries provide 300 hours of continuous use. Transmitter and receiver units operate on 56 bit digital code eliminating accidental operation. Parts replacement is simplified with quick connect plugs and simple ‘learn’ button to link handheld and receiver. System includes model ASKW transmitter housed in rugged aluminum enclosure. Transmitter has low battery warning indicator and button text is printed to customer specifications at time of order.
